The Crispiest Chicharrón I've ever had


#1

I damn near broke a tooth. These are the Tacos De Lechón at Chichen Itza. They are only a buck fifty each.


#2

Nice! I’ve never seen them done that way. Must try.


#3

What’s the proper (or practical) way to eat this taco? Exploding shards of pig skin is like edible shrapnel.


#4

It split cleanly when I bit into it with my front teeth but grinding it up with my molars was a chore.


#5

Thanks @Mattapoisett_in_LA! :smile:

I was super excited to try it until you started talking about almost breaking a tooth and working your molars! LOL.

Was the pork underneath the Chicharron… their famous Cochinita Pibil?


#6

No, it is their Lechón which is only available on weekends. Go, eat, and enjoy.


#7

Is this a new way of serving? Every time we’ve had that there, the chicharon was crumbled up and sprinkled on top.


#8

Their regular chicharron tacos are amazing, and no post meal trip to the dentist.


#9

I ordered at the counter and this is what was delivered to me.

Interesting. Haven’t been there is a while. Wonder why they changed it up.
