A Whole Suckling Pig

Looking for a place where I can get a whole small suckling pig, like Andrew Zimmern got when he went to Spain for Bizarre Foods . Incantos will only do a fairly large suckling pig (I checked ) and I am looking for a small one one , just right for one eater with a hearty appetite.

    The smallest mentioned may leave leftovers.

      I don't know, and I've been looking for years. I'm not sure what's bizarre about spanish
      cochinillo, which is one of the most delicious things on the planet, but in general
      they tend to be a 2-4 person affair. You would have to be mighty hungry to
      down one all by yourself.

      But even if you managed to find one, there are so many variables -- the particular breed
      of pig, the sort of acorns the little guy (or his mom) was eating, the precise materials
      the oven at the particular restaurant is made of, etc. -- that the chances of reduplicating
      a report of a fabulous meal in spain are somewhat slim.

      [Those marinsunfarm prices have gotta be a misprint; it looks like it would be
      cheaper to buy a roundtrip ticket to Segovia and just fly over for lunch ...]
