There are few pleasures in life greater than being able to point out exactly which jiggly pig parts you'd like to have thrown into a tortilla and drowned in spicy tomatillo salsa. It's the ultimate customizable experience—like Chipotle but a million times better. Las Morelianas is the long-standing carnitas specialist in Grand Central Market, and whole pig cookery is their game. You simply choose how many $2 tacos you'd like to eat, then slide over to a cook holding a giant machete-like knife and talk through what variations of porky goodness you want. Get the shoulder if you crave the classic carnitas, or if adventurous textures is your thing, ask for chicharron, or simmered pork skin. The pig party doesn't stop there either. Snout, kidney, belly, ears are all up for grabs.
