I have a friend visiting next week from New York who has a passion for pig, and I want to do some serious hounding with him. Trouble is, I just moved here, and I know very little about the porcine landscape. I like the pernil at Versailles, but it's not exactly a rarity in NYC. My friend lived in China for a while, and he grew extremely fond of the gelatinous belly-cuts favored in his home city. We both like it funky. It can have hair on it, for all I care, as long as it's interesting, delicious, and truly piggy. Any recommendations, particularly for Asian places?
