7-4-2015 Food of the Day: Crispy Pata

I love pork and most Cebuanos share the same feeling towards this meat.  One of my favorite pork dishes aside from the iconic lechon is crispy pata. Crispy Pata is basically a deep-fried hind leg of a pig. The best crispy pata must have crunchy skin and succulent meat.  One of the best ways to achieve a perfect crispy pata is to boil the leg with some herbs and spices. After boiling it, you have to make the meat "rest" and then put it in the freezer or refrigerator overnight. The next day, you can deep fry it in really hot oil.  Crispy Pata is available in almost all Filipino Restaurants.  One of the best places to eat this dish here in Cebu is at Alejandro's.  For me, that restaurant serves the best Crispy Pata.
