where are the best pig's feet?

foodwhisperer Jul 4, 2013 08:44 AM

I totally enjoy the pig feet ( tonsoku 豚足) at Rockmeisha. They are cooked perfectly and are very flavorful. I happen to enjoy all their dishes but presently I am on a search for the best pig's feet of any cuisine. The consistency reminded me of the Pig ear at Salvation, very much collagen.
I also like the crispy pata at Tito Rad's which tastes and feels totally different from the tonsoku at Rockmeisha. Any recommendations from my fellow CH'ers?

      Or even better, at Minetta Tavern?

          Will definitely bring my husband on his b'day...he will love it.
          If I didn't read about this, I'd never pay $44 for pigs feet...but it sounds totally worth it.

              have you been to Hakata Ton Ton? it's a Japanese place not far from Rokmeisha that specializes in pig's feet. i love everything there.
