Crispy Pata at Social House

If there’s anything Filipinos do well, it’s fry the hell out of something. Social House’s atmosphere refines the presentation of crispy pata, but the flavors are all there. A bone-in pork shank is fried crisp so that the skin is like crackling chicharron, while the meat remains tender. Each crunchy, salty, fatty bite should be dipped in the accompanying chili vinegar, or followed by a bite of pickled vegetables to cut into the richness. $24, in Crystals at CityCenter, 736-1122.
