Cafe Rouge-Porchetta (Berkeley)

I wandered in to Cafe Rouge yesterday afternoon in order to pick up a roast chicken. I did leave with a chicken, but more importantly I left with a glorious slice of freshly made porchetta. A huge roast was sitting right up on the counter by the register, with juice glistening from the layers. This stuff was heavenly. Well herbed in the center, spectacularly delicious crackling skin, and fantastically moist throughout. It made a wonderful dinner last night and very satisfying leftovers for lunch today. It was $10.99 per lb, which was expensive for me yet seemed very reasonable for the quality.
