fried hunks of pork

Fried hunks of pork is a big thing for me right now. That and those sort of stir fries of steak, onions, and fries. All kinds of Latin American restaurants have 'em.

Ones I've been too:

Rincon Chilleno: pretty good steak with eggs on top and other stuff. Actually, quite good. Depressing paella. stunk of the freezer.

El Comeira-something-or-other? Ecuadorean? On Beverly just east of Vermont, in the same mall as a Don Felix? Somebody pointed me to this place on this board. Excellent flavored hunks of pork fried deep. Quite good. Ara got the stir-fried steak thing (saltado?). Tasty.

Atlacatl. The fried yucca and fried pork hunk is my favorite hunk of fried pork. Not as well-flavored, quality-pork as El Comeira, but has a incredible crisp crust-to-soft interior thing going down. I think El Com would be to most people's tastes. I just have a fetish.

I'm pretty new to this kind of stuff. Any further suggestions?
