What are carnitas?

What are Carnitas?  Possibly the best pork dish in the world: there is poetry in the huge pot where the meat is slowly braising in its own lard.  A slice of paradise: meltingly soft and perfectly crispy meat that only needs to be wrapped in a tortilla, with a squeeze of lime, your favourite salsa and nothing else. Sold by weight, choose between “maciza” (leaner meat) or “surtida” (mixed cuts like maw, finds, cheek and tongue)

Carnitas by weight

Every order is served with tortillas (20 pieces), 1 green salsa and pico de gallo with Jalapeños. Just delicious.
 
Carnitas, literally meaning “little meats”, is a dish of Mexican cuisine that originated in the state of Michoacán. Carnitas are made by braising or simmering pork in oil or preferably lard until tender. The process takes three to four hours, and the result is very rich and juicy meat with loads of crispy golden bits. It is then typically served with chopped cilantro, diced onion, salsa, guacamole, tortillas, and refried beans (frijoles refritos).
