Spicy lechon was soooooo good.

We ate there for lunch on a Sunday and people just kept on coming in to order lechon for take out! Too bad that spicy lehon wasnt available for take out when we got there. So I just ordered 1kg of the regular one to bring home to Manila.

This has to be the best Boneless Lechon Belly in Cebu - super crispy golden skin and perfectly seasoned meat. At P515 per kilo, it costs more than real lechon (although there are no bones so it is still a better deal). Different parts of the pork will actually remind you of 3 Pinoy favorites:
#1 The fatty parts taste like regular lechon.
#2 The skin is bagnet perfection!
#3 The charred meat reminds me of inihaw na liempo.

Pass me the extra rice please!

Too bad i got no photos as i was too hungry! Anyway, if you're in cebu you gotta try this one after you've tried CnT. Its boneless, its crispy and its soo damn good! Forget about anthony bourdain's best pig ever. This is much much better and you eat the cebuano traditional way.

I got the Spicy Lechon Belly to take home to Manila. I didn't find it to have the same texture as your usual whole roasted lechon, the belly - a round slab of meat encircling traditional spices and fenced in by chicharon-crispy skin - was closer to liempo to me, more of compact and fleshy than stringy. Even miles away and some reheats after, the meat never ceased to be packed with flavor and the skin was crispy til the end. The sight of the roast belly itself, with its skin laced with bubbles of oil, looks like the centerpiece of a luau, or the roast meats you imagine heroes would eat in 'The Odyssey' o.o

Tucked away in a corner lot next to a car repair shop (I think) is the best Lechon ever according to a consensus of well, everyone we brought there to try it, and all the people THEY brought there to try it as well.

Of course, to some Lechon purists, this may not classify as actual Lechon because this is prepared by taking a cut of the pork without the bones, rolling it around the herb and spice preparation and stitching the entire thing up.

The skin was the best, like a hybrid Lechon skin and chicharon that remained crispy 10 hours after we ordered it (more on that later). The meat was flavorful, moist and juicy. The only gripe I have about it was that it may have been a tad too fatty for my liking.

But the flavor of the meat was enough to make me forget about whatever misgivings I had about the fat. With each mouthful you could taste the lemongrass, chili and other herbs they used. It was so lami that my boyfriend decided to take out a half kilo for us to have with some wine back at the hotel.

Alas we were so stuffed we couldn't finish it all in one go. So we sprinkled some of the spicy vinegar that came with it, and ate again after midnight. Lo and behold, albeit not as much as the freshly cooked variety, the skin was still unbelievably crunchy! The vinegar had added another dimension to the flavor, and I loved how it tasted as well.

The verdict: hands down, the best extra crispy boneless Lechon I've ever had.

Yummy boneless lechon! Crispy skin & flavorful meat inside. I didn't mind the open air setup coz food is good. Just wished that the spicy lechon was really spicy, though

Legit-hands-down the best Lechon in Cebu! Boneless spicy lechon has no match with the very commercial Zubuchon and CNT. Definitely a must try. Would have scored it 5stars if they actually have a proper restaurant like its contemporaries.

offering some of the best boneless cebu lechon you can have, the skin is crispy to perfection, flavour's even and there's no need for sauce (unless you want it a little spicy) but at 70 bucks for a meal, you'll definitely want more than your first order.

p.s. eating with your hands is mandatory

Dear Anthony Bourdain, this right here, is THE BEST PIG EVER! Cooked the traditional way, with Filipino flavor. (Thyme and rosemary aren't native to the Philippines!)

This is my first time to eat here, because we usually get their lechon to go. The place is beyond simple, like, it's enough to give a pretentious douche a heart attack. No a/c, no utensils (ok I kinda struggled to eat with my hands, how do Filipinos do it?!) but they do giver you plastic gloves and there's a sink where you can wash your hands.

I already like the takeaway lechon, they manage to keep the skin crisp by separating it from the meat. But trying it freshly roasted. OH MY GOD! It's chicharon level of crisp! The meat, tasty and not as salty as CnT, and it doesn't taste like they use some powder mix in the aromatics.

I finished a kilo by myself (with 3 pusô) and I don't even like plain rice! Ok I like pusô and still wondered how they cooked the rice inside those leaves.

*not for the faint if heart. it had a lot of fat, some parts were very flavorful & spicy, meat was tender & moist, skin was very crisp (non-spicy option also available)
*be ready to eat with your hands, service was just okay, they have the facilities to allow you to wash your hands before & after eating
*ate the spicy boneless lechon with the customary "puso" & sparkle soda
*this definitely hits the spot if you are craving for Cebu's lechon but I still prefer bone-in lechon128061
