Porchetta in Boston?

carbalicious | Aug 11, 2009 08:56 PM

Does anyone know if there is any Porchetta available in Boston? I went to Artu and had the "porchetta" sandwich there, which, while good, was nothing like the porchetta in Italy, which is a deboned suckling pig cooked with lots of herbs and spices and served as a sort of pulled pork panino.

I saw in an old thread that Russo's carries it, does anyone know if they still do, and what it's like? I recently visited Porchetta in New York, and it was kind of a disappointment.

I also know that Salumeria Italiana in the North End carries something under the name porchetta as well, but wonder what it is exactly.
