Fantastic Roast Suckling Pig from last night at New Capital.
The fried lobster and steamed crab were pretty amazing too.

          I believe this is located on the top floor at focus plaza in san gabriel.

        2. Here are a couple of more roast suckling pig pictures:

          1. Are there any good places in the SGV that regularly serve small portions of suckling pig? Sadly I don't have enough enthusiastically porkivorous friends to go whole hog (sorry!) on a whole one.

              You can get them at any place that serves them, such as Sam Woo on Valley Blvd in Alhambra. They are usually Cantonese places. If you see it hanging with the roast ducks, you can order however many pounds you wish. I've ordered as little as half a pound at a time. If you know Cantonese, you can order cuts from certain parts of the pig as well.

                Those are usually full grown hogs, not suckling pigs. The skin isn't as tough with the suckling pigs. You can do partial orders at Elite during dim sum I believe.

                  Thanks! Do you have any sense if it's a weekend-only item?
