Lets do this again this weekend - ISO BEST Crispy Pig in Chinatown

So last year - wrote in this thread:

that I was looking for Crispy Pig & got some wonderful recs & a good education on differences between:

Golden crispy skinned roast pig (boon fay sow = 1/2 fat 1/2 lean.)


Red skinned bbq Roast pork (cha siu


But when we got to our destination of choice - Great NY Noodletown - it was out :(

So are the recommendations for Crispy Roast Pig the same this year or has some new establishment popped up?

                Not the best, but don't discount Sun Sai Kai on the corner of Baxter and Canal in a pinch. If I can recall, they always have suckling pig as well. There are some that like Wing Wong, @ 102 Mott Street, though I have never been so I cannot give you any first hand knowledge.
