Crispy pata is one of those dishes exemplifies the Filipino passion for all things pork, particularly fried things. The thing in question in this case is a deep fried pig trotter. It’s available in many places in Woodside’s Little Manila, but I like the version at Mama Meena’s in Woodhaven, a neighborhood not exactly known for Pinoy food. Last time I checked Meena’s was the only Filpino place in the nabe. Her pig foot is fried to a shattering crunchiness and the meat beneath the burnished skin is juicy and tender. Dip it in the accompanying vinegar sauce and you’ll begin to understand the Pinoy obsession for pork.
