1,084 kilometers south of Manila, lies the oldest city in the country, Cebu City. Cebu is home to one of the most delicious dishes offered by the Philippines and what Anthony Bourdain has dubbed as the “best pig, EVER!” – Cebu Lechon.
Basically, lechon is a whole pig that has been roasted over charcoal. Litsoneros spend painstaking hours manually rotating the pig so it cooks evenly on all sides. Lechon is the national dish of the Philippines. It can be found almost anywhere but many attest that nothing beats lechon that comes from Cebu.
What makes Cebu Lechon different from other lechons?
In Cebu, they rub down the pig with lots of salt inside and out before stuffing it with various herbs such as lemon grass, laurel leaves, and Pandan leaves. Unlike the roast pork variety that is sold by restaurants in Manila, Cebu Lechon is not served with the traditional liver sauce. The reason for this is because Cebu Lechon is chockfull of flavors as it is so it no longer needs to be complimented with a sauce.
Aside from the flavor, Cebu Lechon is popular for its irresistibly crispy skin. If you’ve seen the No Reservations episode where Anthony Bourdain hailed Cebu Lechon as the best pig ever, you would probably noticed that he was saying this as he was munching over a piece of lechon skin. Yes, the skin of Cebu Lechon is so crispy, you can actually here the crunch on TV.
If you ever find yourself in the beautiful province of Cebu, make sure to order yourself a plate of Cebu Lechon. It is a dish that you should definitely try at least once in your life.
