Porky's. I guess the name says it all, and I'm to be blamed for walking in thinking there might be some vege/pesca--terian options. My bad.

Anyway, I ordered a hearts of palm salad that wasn't too bad given the aforementioned facts. In fact, I'd go so far to say that I'd eat the salad again, if my friends wanted pork for dinner. Now, since I did get a glass of sangria with my meal, and it had 3 mean-sized ice cubes in it, I was a bit disappointed when it disappeared in a gulp. I guess that's why the waiter turned immediately when I swallowed and said, "Would you like another?"

Not at that price.

Best suprise we had in Leon. My wife and i have been in Leon for a couple of days, and after seveal dissapointing meals, we had started to lose hope of finding a good place to eat.

So on our last night we went for a stroll and we ended up at Porkys House. The menu is in spanish and since our spanish is in the starting fase of learning, it was hard to know all the dishes from the meny. Non the less, we wanted to try the pulled pork. Sadly we understood that they had just ran out if it, and since we came in late, it took 3 hours to get the next batch ready (whitch is a great sign that they only have freash meat). The language barrier made the hole conversation a little hard, but the waiter was ever so pationt with us. So after a while he pulled up the phone and rang to one of their 2 other astablishments that manly do pulled pork (one fastfood corner and one street trolly). After about 10 minutes, a guy on a motorbike came rushing in with a freash pulled pork sandwich, rapped neatly in paper and in a paperbag. IT WAS HAVENLY and ever så juicy - the bbq sauce was fantastic, so was the cold slaw. My wife agreed. She wassent so hungry, but after tasting my PPS, she got hungry and ordered the Cuban sandwich - what can i say, the meat was juicy and fresh, together with the mozzarella cheese and the roasted baguette it was amazing to.

Exellent service. Good prices. Fresh meat. They have a brick oven right behind the counter where they grill their meat.

We where so happy to have discovered this place and i urge you to visit one of their establishments if you are in town or passing by.

Thank you Porkys House.

I've been here for dinner twice now and the food is excellent. The specialty is pork and they do it well - there are all different types of cuts and the meat is the hero of the dish. There is a large brick oven where you can see the pork roasting.

There are complimentary plantain fries, well presented plates and a range of extras (salsas, sauces etc) that accompany your plate. The service is attentive and the staff will happily recommend their favourite dishes.

Cannot recommend this place highly enough.
