La Esquina Del Lechon
While lechon asado is usually reserved for special occasions, La Esquina Del Lechon serves it up every week, Wednesday through Saturday. It’s roasted in the traditional caja china, seasoned with homemade mojo, and served in a huge portion that comes fresh off the hog. The meat is juicy and tender but still has that layer of crispy skin. Pair it with some mojo-slathered yuca and platanos maduros. The lechon is what you want here, so if you order the chicken taco salad don’t get mad when your friend slaps you with a chancleta.
