lechon asada on 118th St
- bob tanner
Has anyone done any in-depth eating at Lechon Asada stand on 2nd Avenue and 118th? (maybe 117th, i forget) They're only open Fri-Sun while the weather's warm, according to the very friendly guy slicing the pig.
Looks fantastic -- menu had pastelillos (meat or shellfish), roast chicken, and a slew of things I've never tried. The lechon (all I had time for, as we were en route to Patsy's) was pretty close to perfect -- crispy skin, moist meat, lots of herbs under the skin.
I'll be back regardless, but was wondering if anybody else had tried. Or knew of any other good weekend-type neighborhood operations in that neighborhood.
