Anywhere in the city where I can get whole roast pig other than chinatown?
Lots of selection in the east end in Scarborough. My favourite is at the Alton Towers mall in the corner between the Pizza Nova and the bookstore.. I forget their name, but they're reasonably priced and very yummy.
There is a BB-Q place at Brimly and Sheppard north west corner. When you say besides chinatown are you refering to the spadina dundas area or do you mean not chinese style?
Not sure what sort of seasoning appeals to you but many of the larger mid-town Portuguese BBQ joints could oblige.
There is a plaza at the SE corner of Midland & McNicoll, wherethere are 3 Chinese BBQ joints, and they advertised on theirwindows that they roast whole pig.. I think a baby pig isabout $90 or 125?
If you're looking in west Toronto, I know that there is at least one place near Dupont & Symington that has lineups running out the door when they're pigs are ready (about once a week).
O Bairradino, at Lansdowne and Wallace (between Bloor and Dupont), is another Portuguese churrascaria that does roast suckling pig. Very tasty, as I recall.
My favorie Chinese Roast Piglet is inside Pacific Mall. On the second floor, there's a Shark Fin City. They are crisp and soft!
Also very expensive!
That is true. Grrr. I guess a whole piglet maybe a small fortune.
have you ever tried filipino style roast pigs (they're called lechon)? it's a staple in celebrations and i'm sure there are many places that make it here.
Chef Fu, where did you end up getting your pig?
If you haven't my family has been ordering their whole pigs (not suckling) from a place at Finch/Leslie. He He Long BBQ.
Barraida, 1000 College has roast pig every Wednesday. Takeout, too.
You can't get the whole pig. I thought that's what the original poster was inquiring about.
Barraida is terrific, though. Not the nicest servers, even if you are Portuguese, but takeout's great and patio season is an amazing time to dine there.
i'm wondering if anyone's had pig from barraida recently? i am craving some pig but not enough to get a whole one.
Does anyone know where I can rent a spit for a party I'm having???
