Pig Roast

A few weeks ago, someone was asking about where to get a roasted pig. I said I had ordered a 40 lb roasted pig from Tropical Hut in Old Bridge for $200 for a party in mid-July.

Well, we had it this past weekend and both the Party and the Pig were awesome. I pig it up at 4pm and the pig was still hot. It came in a open cardboard box with the bottom lined with tin foil and banna leaves. The skin was super crisp, some of the meat was juicy and some was dry. They included a grey lump sauce that I think was made out of the pig liver.

I served it with grilled pineapple, the liver sauce and my own sweet sauce (soy sauce, sugar, ginger & garlic). It was a big hit. I am attaching some photos below.
