Roasted Suckling Pig done to PERFECTION!!!

bcmchong | Jan 31, 201012:35 PM     32

So excited to find and thus share this diamond in the rough.

Just drove up to Elizabeth to Casa Do Leitao (http://casadoleitao.com/casadoleitao.... and got me a true suckling pig, not a roasted whole pig faking as 'Roasted Suckling Pig' but a TRUE suckling pig! Skin is done to perfection and not fatty at all. Meat was tender and juicy. Price for whole was reasonable, about $140 and the best part is they will sell it however you want it. A half, a quarter or by the pound and you don't have to order ahead. They are closed on Mondays but they have suckling pig every day. Best to call ahead so that you'll know when the next batch is coming out of the oven.

Place was spotless too, whoever the guy was behind the counter, owner or manager... he was very friendly and polite.

Highly recommended. Area wasn't the best but the immediately block seemed fine. I did take-out but have not eaten there yet. I'll report back once I do.

If anyone ventures there please let me know what you thought.
