Sahuahyo Primo is a Mexican restaurant in Santa Ana. It specializes in pig by the pound, one of many such spots in SanTana, which I declare the pork capital of OC. This city teems with residents from Michoacán, the Mexican state credited with inventing carnitas, perfecting chicharrones and giving due respeto to chorizo. A menu on the marquee breaks the offerings down to the cut (aldilla, skin-on pork belly deep-fried until the skin and meat collapse onto each other) and pig part (trompo, the snout of the pig that Sahuayo cooks into a jellied slab of quivering fat), with everything in between.
