Whole roast pig siting at Watertown Greek Festival - YumYum?

Driving buy saw the little squeekers roasting on spits. Had other plans, and the line for food was very long, but darned if the little porkers weren't tempting. I could see the mahogany skin glistening in the fire.

All that porky goodness, there must have been 6 or so, 50 pound piglets, made me think of YumYum. Pretty sure they are open Sunday too.

    Dang. I guess there was more than gyros in that outside corner on Friday evening? Oh well.

      Stopped by Friday at 6 & savored a wonderful melt-in-your-mouth order of pork with crackling skin. Tried again last night at 8 and they said they'd been out of pork & lamb since 12:30! Got some moussaka instead.

        Yay! I was hoping you'd try it. Nice one Taralli.

        Hey Yumyum, I am ashamed to say it, but in the name of my own girlish figure, (after hitting an afternoon cookout) I too am abstaining.

        In my (lost) youth I would have bitten the bullet and gone for the piggy goodness regardless.

          I *love* that you thought of me when spying pig on spit. It really makes me proud -- for real. Thanks.

          Unfortunately this hound must exercise a tiny bit of restraint over the upcoming weeks in the painful pursuit of swim-suit decency. I will have to experience this pig by reading others' posts ... I hope someone will report if they try it.

            According to their flyer, the outdoor grilling which includes the pig, lamb and gyro roast is available in the evening only. The Sunday schedule is 6-10pm.

            You may want to call just to double-check. 617-924-8182

            I went yesterday afternoon and saw the succulent pigs and lamb roasting but wasn't able to buy them because it was too early.
