Best Suckling Pig (2008)

El Rincon Boricua

Every day a whole baby pig, roasted to perfection, appears in the window of El Rincon Boricua, a Puerto Rican restaurant located in the venerable neighborhood known as El Barrio. The brown skin crackles, while the meat tenderly yields to teeth and tongue—flavorful, but not garlicky like pernil. Soup there is also a thing of beauty.
