Pepita's Kitchen has been creating a lot of buzz in the foodie universe.   Blame it on the Truffle Lechon.  This is one of the stalls i wanted to try during the World Street Food Congress.  The crazy long lines is a lil daunting and my low EQ is a huge factor. 

So imagine my delight when i found out they are in my City.  Pepita at HITW,  baby!  Yes,  this is one of those pop-up events,  so it only means one thing.... Get you lazy@&% up and head on to Century...now!  You have until Sunday. 

We decided to swing by to have a taste of the most talked about roasted pig.  Clarissa P and i share the same enthusiasm as we brave Makati traffic on a gloomy Friday afternoon.  We arrived at Century a lil after 4pm.  Hallelujah!  No lines and our eyes feasted on the prettiest roasted pig.  I think i drooled a lil bit. 

Each serving costs php 280.  You get a plate truffle infused rice topped with lechon.  The serving size is ideal and it is reasonably priced.  I wouldn't mind shelling out my working class dough on some truffle goodness.  Okay,  i overselled a bit,  my bad.  Trust me when i say that this is the best thing that ever happened to me all week.  The rice is so darn good and oozing with flavor,  a heavenly combination of truffle and lechon goodness.  The lechon is equally good too!  Bold flavors and succulent.  And oh,  don't forget the skin....Gah!  It so good,  i had to fight the urge to get two more. 

Oh,  Pepita!  Let me inside your kitchen.  I can stay there forever.

P.S.

Hooray for 600 reviews.  128512

Did you know that Pepita's Kitchen is doing a pop-up in Hole in the Wall?!? Offering nothing but their infamous Truffle Lechon, Pepita's Kitchen will have it's last run from today until SUNDAY (Oct. 02)!!!!

Reich T and I went today to try it out. So lucky there was no line yet! Two orders of Truffle Rice Stuffed Lechon, 280Php each. Our orders were served fast and the aroma of strong truffle oil lingered! Gah! How can you resist?!?

The serving was rather small but for lechon x truffle - I'm not complaining. The rice was a little sticky but in a good way. Infused with a generous amount of truffle oil and all the goodness of lechon, delicious! The lechon meat was tender and tasty as well. They also included two slices of lechon skin because what's a lechon experience without the skin, right?!? One piece was not too crispy anymore but the other piece was the bomb!

Each order also comes in with a side serving of chili in oil, more like sambal, which makes each spoonful of the Truffle Rice and Lechon more awesome!

Warning: one order will not make you full. If you're really hungry, might as well het 3 orders 128514

Our Lechon Degustacion was insane! The 14-course dinner we had started at 8pm and ended at 12midnight was one for the books!

One (1) lechon is quite enough to make me happy. But two (2) different kinds of lechon de leches were rolled out that night! Ecstacy!

Lechon #1: Than Long de Leche
All my favorites in one dish! This lechon was stuffed with garlic noodles and crab meat. It was actually a meal in itself already with the perfectly, addicting and salty crispy skin! The entire lechon was seasoned just right, complimenting the semi-bland noodles. But drizzling everything with garlic, butter and olive oil sauce, made this dish extra smashin’!

Lechon #2: Lechon Ham in Sweet Ham Sauce
This reminds me very much of Christmas! It was a perfect blend of savory and sweet flavors with slices of yummy ham inside. The ham sauce was really sweet though. Good thing I didn’t soak my lechon with the sauce since it gets a tad overwhelming when you use too much of it.

‘Twas another tummy exploding night! Dedet dela Fuente and her entire Pepita’s Kitchen team are kitchen wizards!

Had lechon with spicy rice sisig inside. Amazing. The pig's size is bigger than a cuchinillo but smaller than an ordinary lechon. Good for about 6 hefty eaters 12 servings (I'm guessing) for normal eaters. Haven't had anything close to this. You have to order in advance. Definitely and literally a heartbreaker. Lol. 128522128077128077

Ps: Seriously. This should require a cardio clearance. Fantastic though.

I couldn't help it. Had to try the Spanish Manileña Lechon. It was terrific. You can't go wrong if your looking for a Lechon.

They can prepare Lechon 7 different ways on takeout basis. But if you want they can prepare a 12 course Lechon Degustacion for parties of 15. We ordered the Pinoy Style with Laing rice. It was fantastic. They won't let you down.
