Taste of Little Italy - Cuban (?) stall

ggom1 | Jun 14, 2008 08:09 AM

At the end of Little Italy near Ossington, in front of El Convento Rico and across from the Dominion, there's a food stall which has been there every year. It's the only reason I go to Taste of Little Italy, but I don't know what kind of food it is or where I can go year-round to get it.

I'm not sure, but I remember thinking that maybe it's a Cuban place. They have the option of grilled beef, or grilled chicken skewers also, but I've always gotten the pork. They have a large square block of pork to start off with (I think it's frozen), and they put it into a giant pan (like a giant paella pan) and then the block becomes smaller as it cooks in the pan and it turns into really delicious shredded pork. Has anyone tried this place, or know where I can get this type of food? They also serve the meat item with salad and some type of potato patty - the potato patty is like, if you took a lump of mashed potato and put it onto a solid surface grill because the outside becomes kind of hard and crunchy, but the inside is yellow mashed potato.

LOL I'm worried that one year the stall won't be there, so I figured I'd better seek an alternative supplier now.
