Suckling Pig dinner at Alchemy

Josh | Aug 16, 2011 12:29 AM

Alchemy's new menu has a Cuban-style roast suckling pig dinner which they say feeds 8-10 people. We got together with some friends and tried it Sunday night.

We were a party of 12, and there was enough pork to have easily fed another four people.

The menu consists of a a starter of plantain tostones with a garlic/cilantro olive oil dressing, followed by the pig, roasted yucca, and black beans. The pig is marinated in mojo (a citrus/garlic marinade), and a large bowl of extra mojo is served with the pig.

If you're looking for an unusual and fun meal for a large group, I recommend this pretty highly. Price is $38/person, and you need to reserve it a few days in advance.

Squeamish people should avoid it, as you tear into the pig with knives and tongs. It's a really primal, and delicious, experience.
