There are few things worse than a pig done wrong. You can probably plow through an overcooked chicken. You can even find some semblance of flavor in a rubbery steak. But pork? That’s a no-go. Too long on the flame, and you’ll lose all its flavor, it’ll induce cotton-mouth, and you’ll find yourself chewing, forever, on a piece you had to rip off with your teeth like some sort of barbarian. Pork can only be perfect, and that’s what’s so beautiful about it.
At Cochon, you’ll always find good pork. Especially on their new Fall menu. Check it out after the jump.
