Best Pork in S.F.

I will be in town for the holidays and i am wondering what is the best pork dish in the city. It can be any style or cuisine, and not necessarily BBQ.

  1. What immediately came to mind:

    Pork shoulder at Incanto.
    Pork ragu at Incanto.
    Pork leg stew noodle soup at Thai House Express.
    Tacos al pastor at Taqueria San Jose.

    Incanto Restaurant & Wine Bar
    1550 Church St, San Francisco, CA 94131

    Taqueria San Jose
    2830 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110

    Thai House Express
    901 Larkin St, San Francisco, CA 94109

      i firmly believe that the carnitas at taqueria san jose are probably some of the best in the city. shredded and ultra crispy textures with a very satisfying flavor. not to be missed.

        I like the conchinita pibil at Mi Lindo Yucatan.

            Yes. I think it's even better inside the soup.

            My initial thoughts are:

            taco al pastor at el novillo taco truck in oakland (just mentioning this in case you're flying into oakland airport - it's very close)
            poc chuc at mi lindo yucatan
            porchetta at roli roti

        2. Second the pork shoulder and pork ragu at Incanto.

          The porchetta at Ame and the roast suckling pig at Koi Palace is also delicious.

          1. If you can catch a Saturday when Roli Roti's making it, don't miss the porchetta and the bay views at Ferry Plaza.
