Search South Bronx on Youtube and you’ll get a lot of “New York’s Most Dangerous Hood” or “Worst Hood” videos. Go to the South Bronx and you’ll find bursting neighbourhoods with incredible restaurants, especially Puerto Rican joints. Lechonera La Piraña may be the best place to eat Lechon in all of New York or America. The owner, Angel Jiminez is a machete weilding master of Roast Pork who makes everyone feel welcome and makes sure everyone is well fed. Unless you can jump a flight to Guavate to ride the famous Pork Highway in Puerto Rico, this is your ticket to pig heaven near Mott Haven.
