The Pan Con Lechon ($8.90) from Coppelia is a sandwich for pig lovers. A layer of shredded roasted pork is topped by crackling pieces of chicharrón, adding crunch and a second dose of pork. The fatty roasted meat gets a kick with the second bite from the garlicky mojo sauce. Pieces of pickled onion impart an acidic tang and the baguette was particularly fresh.
