''THE BEST PIG EVER!'' - Anthony Bourdain
Quick Trivia: Zubuchon got its name from Zubu which means Cebu and Chon from the term lechon meaning roasted pig.

Cebu is know for their Lechon and their famous Zubuchon is finally in Manila since last 2017 of March.
I can't believe Zubuchon is only one tricycle away from our office which is located in Talisay Makati, within San Antonio.

The restaurant is super huge it can cater up to more or less 100 pax. They were really the talk of the town when they opened so regardless of the time we visit it would usually be full and you will have to sign up on the waiting list. The ambiance is really cozy and the interior is very welcoming. I like how it is brighten up with natural light in the morning because of the huge windows. It is well-ventilated and the staff are very accommodating. There are a lot of people ordering take outs and I've observed that there were realy looooong lines so if you plan ordering their Lechon for your event make sure you order ahead to avoid waiting for more than an hour.

Food
128061 Ensaladang Talong
Grilled eggplant and tomato salad with vinaigrette dressing P130
Masarap at mura. I just love how the quality of their food makes you want to pay more. Simple dish pero napasarap parin nila.

128061 Zubuchon Monggo P220
Mung beans with lechon broth, lechon, coconut cream and vegetables
I don't eat Monggo as a viand cause I don't know how I'd eat them. Haha. This was my first experience eating a Monggo and I was forced to try it cause my bosses were enjoying it so much that I got so jealous I knew I had to try it. YES, HINDI AKO NAGKAMALI. PATI BA NAMAN ITO MASARAP? AT THIS POINT I was already thinking may hindi ba masarap sa restaurant na to? 🤣

128061 Zubuchon Dinuguan P280
Traditional blood stew with lechon meat and coconut cream
I was surprised how good this dinuguan was. I would usually taste a hint of sourness on every dinuguan I would eat but this one is different.
It's very light and savory. Ito na siguro yung pinakaso-so lang sa inorder namin but it was still good. Naparami ako ng kanin dito!

128061 ZUBUCHON (Traditional or Spicy) P290 Small
Zubuchon's lechon has no MSG, Preservatives, and no artificial coloring. You can opt to have your lechon served in sizzling or spicy aside from the traditional flavor.
The meat is very tasty already that it didn't need any lechon sauce.
ANG SARAP TALAGA. Crispy pa yung skin, maririnig ng kapitbahay yung kagat mo sa Lechon. Wahahaha. I've never tried an authentic cebu lechon ever so this was another first for my foodventure.
The spicy version is really good that even if I hate spicy food I was able to eat it. Hindi siya yung anghang na basta-basta, maanghang pero malasa. This is something I'd keep coming back for. KAKAIBA. NAKAKAADIK KAHIT WALANG MSG!

128061 Baked Scallops (No Photo) P230
Scallops baked in butter and garlic topped with melted cheese
This is the bomb. One of the best bake Scallops I've had in years.
It's served hot and fresh from the oven the butter were sizzling and the cheese were oozing from the sides of the shell. It's so appetizing and it was really good that the next time I come back, I will be eating this all to myself! ito ang scallops na ipagdadamot mo!

127864Calamansi Smoothie
Their Calamansi Smoothie is nothing but refreshing. It taste so fresh which is just the perfect drink to take out all the umay from the tasty dishes.
They offer seasonal fruit shakes or smoothies which I'm really keen to try more of. On my second visit they had kamias and longgan shake but we weren't able to try it cause I still ordered the Kalamansi Juice. Haha!

Ahhhh I just can't wait to be back again for their lechon. Huhu.
127775 The quality of the food is really good, walang tapon lahat masarap
127775 The ambiance is nice, cozy and it's spacious
127775 The pricing is unbelievable. One order would only cost your below P300 or P200. Beware lang cause minsan mapapaorder ka ng marami kasi bitin kapa akala mo mura, magugulat ka nalang 5k na ang bill mo cause what happend to us. Lol.
127775 Easy to navigate and the parking space is huge
See ya soon Zubuchon!

Keto diet! CHOS 128518

Hubby and I got the single serving platter (boneless, belly part, with rice ), P220 per order . Crunchy balat and flavorful meat , we liked it 128523128076
Balanced it out with a veggie dish, ensaladang talong , P130.
Their Kamias Shake (P100), sobrang winner!!! Gujab to our server for recommending it 128077

*This is a late post, pre-Christmas chaos and parties, so it was easy to get a table at the resto, and there's plenty of lechon to order heehee 128521

Ohhh lechon!!!! Celebrated the birthday of my meat loving slash fan of all things meaty and fatty uncle here one evening. This was really the perfect place to celebrate his special day because HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG WITH LECHON? CEBU LECHON TO BE EXACT!!! It's the best tasting lechon imho and we like that you don't need sarsa anymore to make it taste better because it's already yummy and tasty on it's own. We always always buy Cebu lechon whenever we visit Cebu or we would ask our friends to bring at least a kilo for us! 128518128069 So when we found out that they finally opened a branch here in Manila, we were all so happy. Haha legit, happiness! 128055128055

It was already late and we were starving! Had to wait for at least 15-20 minutes to get a table. 128563🤐 When we finally got a table, we ordered right a way.

BONELESS PORK LECHON BELLY (4/5)
PINAKBET (2/5)
BANGUS SISIG (3/5)
ZUBUCHON PANCIT CANTON (3/5)
BAKED SCALLOPS (2.5/5)
SINIGANG NA HIPON (3/5)

The lechon was YUMMY! It was salty, fatty, and oily but SO DAMN GOOD!! It was very very tasty and tender. So flavorful and sinful at the same time. 128563128539128540 We all enjoyed this one. Wasn't able to try the skin anymore but according to Ony, it was crispy! 128588🏼

Lechon was good but the other dishes were frustrating... 128557

*Sinigang na Hipon - meh, nothing special, too sour you can't enjoy it anymore. 🤐
*Baked Scallops - too small, cheesy but TOO SALTY.
Bangus Sisig and Pancit Canton - usual, nothing extraordinary and TOO SALTY.
Pinakbet - I love veggies so I got super sad that this was, just like the other dishes, TOO SALTY. 128557☹️

SERVICE was bad. Super slow and the servers were all too busy that we had a hard time calling them. 128530

Still giving them 3 stars because LECHON was GOOD!!!!! 🙄128523

To be honest it was a bit disappointing actually, the lechon does not translate to actual lechon, its like eating lechon macau. it was like broiled pig with criapy skin. it was a let down. did anthony bourdain really enjoy their lechon?

i love the other food they have in their menu, forgot to take a picture of sinigang hipon, sadly their shrimp is not fresh (you can tell by looking at the head of the shrimp, it was black and crushed) it was not a pretty sight).

we split the lechon into 2 kinds, regular and the other on a sizzling plate and made it spicy. it was so so.
dinuguan was okay, squid stuffed with sisig is a 128077!
ensaladang kamatis, itlog na maalat at tinapang bangus is double 128077128077 because of the spicy vinegar mixed. and the ensaladang eggplant was the same.

in conclusion if you really know what real lechon taste like, it is pretty far from it. not to brag but i have tasted better lechon in mindanao and its not even "sikat". it was a shame that lechon; their main dish was a let down.

if i have time next year im going to the provinces in mindanao and make a review for lechon.

Complementary appetizer: peanuts with konting chicharon
Was super hungry so ang saya ko dahil may mani na may konti (sobrang konting chicharon)

Chicharon bits super konti at medyo lasang luma but ok lang kasi gutom na gutom na ko. 128517
