lechon asado for christmas dinner

heidib | Dec 12, 2003 10:40 PM

I'm looking for prepared lechon asado for our family's christmas dinner - not more than 20 lbs of it (i.e. not the whole hog). I've already ruled out El Cochinito (on Sunset in Silverlake) because theirs has gone drastically downhill in recent months (I'm almost positive the restaurant was sold). I just came back from Toto's Manok in Eagle Rock and they don't sell orders smaller than 42 lbs (!). Does anyone know of a good source, preferably east side? I don't care what half of the erstwhile Spanish empire it comes from - it could even be called sucking pig and cooked by an Englishman - I just don't have room cook one myself. Plus my SO would probably leave me if he saw a baby pig head in our oven.

Thanks for any help.
