Foie Gras Stuffed Piglet at Roscioli

Yes, you read the heading correctly. That is a crispy pig stuffed with rich and fatty foie gras. Never has anything so wrong tasted so right. This very unfortunate looking piggy was sprawled out on a wooden slab on Roscioli’s counter today (the Via dei Giubbonari location). Ordinarily I would never encourage anyone to eat a meal there (stick to the burrata and pata negra) but this calls for an exception.

    You will make me vegan one day. This is a horrible picture. All i can see is a pig crying for help. Any food with the head makes me feel guilty. But i cannot reject delicious,and tasty kofte, kebabs and burgers. Otherwise i’d be vegeterian by now.

    Haha I hope not. Veganism is a terrible tragedy. It’s funny because I dont see the pig as crying for help. To me, he is smiling. Look at that toothy grin!

    I think he looks exhausted – like he just gave up the fight! Still, roasted pig is yummy!

      I wouldn’t pick any of them and would splurge on fish at Tempio di Iside instead. But if you’re really set on fine dining, then Metamorfosi and Pipero. or if you have around €350 a head to spend, La Pergola
