Any ideas about where to get roast suckling pig (either whole or half) to go?

    most cantonese restaurants can do this given advance notice.

    the last suckling pig i bought was from eva's lechon in koreatown and it was delicious.

      Second Eva's Lechon. They do 1/4 pig, 1/2 pig & whole. Must be ordered around 3-4 advance. Skin is crispy and meat is tender. Just call the day of and double check your pick-up time so you don't get stuck waiting, especially around the holidays.

      Sam Woo in Alhambra. Call ahead (24 hours).

        I like Sam Woo in Monterey Park. They cut it up nicely and place it on a tray. Need to put a deposit for the tray and you will get it back once you return it. YumCha Cafe has it so does all the major places that offer dimsum.

          Sam Woo Monterey Park.
          This one pictured weighed in around 30 pounds and the waiter said it was about $200.

          Toto's Lechon Manook can also cater to your needs. It is Filipino style and should be served with a 7 day supply of Lipitor.

            ... or just a big bottle of Drano.

              I had some leftovers and decided to reheat in the microwave. About 30 seconds later it sounded like WWII in my kitchen. All the pork fat blew up, but boy did it taste good.

            BBQ Unlimited on Sherman Way in Sherman Oaks makes a great roast whole or half pork at different sizes. If you order a whole one they will chop it for you and put it back to gether as a whole looking pig.
