Menu: Lechon Baboy (Roast Pig)
2007-09-27 05:26:00
Lechon baboy is one of the highlight of Filipinofestivities, birthdays, wedding, family reunion and christmas parties. the dish was introduced by the Spaniards centuries ago while some evidence link it to Chinese immigrants. the most favorite part of Lechon is its crispy skin then dip into a liver base sauce yum. Lechon is a very delicious dish but some wasn't cook right thats why the skin was not that yummy and crispy. and what i like the best about lechon is its left over and transformed into another dish called Lechon Paksiw. pig is not the only animal that can be roast other popular form of lechon are chicken and cow. chicken is very much affordable and can be bought almost in every corner of the country. La Loma the area between the boundary of Manila and Quezon City is the "Lechon Capital Of The Philippines" many restaurants sell lechon there and the best of them all Mila's Lechon. Lechon of Cebu City is among the best in the Country.
