The BEST-TASTING Lechon in Cebu

“Lechon! Lechon! Lechon mo diha.” The magic words we all want to hear.

Let’s admit it, there’s definitely no contest about it that the lechon in Cebu is hands-down the best and most delicious. This is because Cebu lechon is best known for its crunchy golden red skin and tender, juicy, flavorsome meat.

“Lechon” has already been considered as a national dish and has become a huge hit that gatherings, feasts, parties – or even a plain visit to Cebu will not be complete without having a taste of the finger-licking roasted suckling pig.
