Looking for a pig to roast
Any favorite local places that offer these? I need a 100 pounder.
Try calling Papa Cristo's Restaurant on Pico and Normandie. They might be able to help you since they are involved in roasting lambs. I would also check with Victor's Meats at National and Exposition in the Palms area. They're a great meat market and very accommodating.
Most Filipino restaurants offer lechon (roast pig). They need at least 2-3 day advance notice.
Try CBS Seafood in LA Chinatown. I see people picking up roast pigs there on the weekends all the time. 100 pounds is a pretty big pig and top price I've seen at CBS is $150 for their large size which looks like around 20 pounds cooked.
You might also check other Chinese restaurants that have BBQ. Size of pig your looking for looks like those crackling skin pigs they got hanging.

Marcondas at the Third Street Farmers Market can get them for you. I've just been talking with Lou about it.
