Many mahalos to Food & Wine’s Best New Chef – Chef Jonathan Sawyer and his crews for their work. Awesome!

Now we thought the skin or the chicharone was the piece de resistance in this dish. Sadly, the skin was soft and not crispy. Maybe we were dreaming of the Pork Highway again (Puerto Rico).
Peel back the Pig's Head skin and fat, and you find delicious juicy pork....
Juicy cheek meat #moneyshot
And of course we ordered dessert too…
Semifreddo (like kid time ice cream sandwich)
Who else loves an ice cream sandwich?
