A large, sturdy, roadside building, Angelito’s is the anchor of the ruta de lechón in Trujillo Alto. Many days, the line from the butcher table snakes out into the parking lot—because locals know that Rivera is a stickler for ingredients. “We use the best possible quality,” he said. “For example, [because] the price of garlic has risen, some people have started using garlic powder, saying it is the same thing. It is not the same thing!” Cheap ingredients, he maintained, diminish the quality of the final product. His pigs comes from Ceiba, a town on the east coast, and he is a fierce proponent of charcoal. “Economically speaking, gas is much cheaper,” he said. “But for purposes of quality, charcoal is always better.”
