Though it might sound a little foreign to you, the name “Lechon” is derived from a Spanish word which actually means Roasted Suckling Pig. Lechon is slowly cooked over charcoal to achieve a crisp pork skin while keeping its meat juicy and succulent.
Being one of the national dishes of Philippines, everyone loves Lechon for its thin pork skin that ignites a hearty crunch in your mouth with every bite; think of it as a similar version to the Chinese suckling pig.
Philippines has never been far from my thoughts since my trip to Manila last year. I made a promise to visit the beautiful country again, so I jumped at the chance when I managed to get cheap flights for a short getaway to Cebu.
Cebu – one of the most developed provinces in the country – is a province in the Philippines which consists of the main Cebu Island and 167 surrounding islands. Alongside Boracay, it is also a top tourist destination in Philippines.
Here’s my list of 10 things to eat in Cebu Philippines.
I had the chance to visit Manila, the capital city of Philippines for a short trip, and oh my, it was such a fabulous experience. Other than the terrible traffic, I love everything about the country. The Filipinos are super friendly hosts, the country has a very rich history and culture, and most importantly, the food – oh my god – the food. This is a country where the people eat a lot (in a good way); the food is flavourful and very tasty. There is not a proper definition of Philippine cuisine as it differs from the various cities and provinces. But from what I have observed, Filipinos really love their rice and pork.
It is impossible to describe my four days three night experience in Philippines within a single post, but here are 10 things to do in Manila Philippines.
