Love at First Taste
Speaking of love, would you believe that my ex-boyfriend now husband used to live in La Loma Quezon City. I’m pretty sure that you know that this place is famous for lechon and they even have a yearly parade of lechon. As expected, we always eat lechon in one of lechon restaurants there.
I really missed our lechon dates because when we got married, we moved to South Luzon which is really far from Quezon City.
Why Do Filipinos Love to have Lechon During Parties?
It is not surprising that Filipinos love to have lechon in any occasions. It seems that celebrations is not complete without it. It is always present in birthdays, festivals, reunions, wedding, parties or any other occasions.

Four years ago, I revisited Cebu to celebrate my birthday and I did not leave the place without tasting the famous lechon. One bite of lechon made me realized why Cebu’s lechon is really famous, it is true that you don’t need a sauce to enjoy this dish.
I have to agree with Anthony Bourdain’s statement, “Best pig ever!”. Since then I always get excited whenever my husband has business trip in Cebu because I know that he will buy lechon for me. Yes, I don’t ask for danggit, dried mango or otap, all I want is Cebu’s lechon. You can check here the different lechon that I’ve tried in Cebu. And as of this writing, I’m just waiting for my husband’s pasalubong from Cebu. :)
Manong’s Lechon Cebu
Cebu is far so it is really sad because we can’t have it any time we want. But fret not because I just discovered last October 25, when I attended Blogaplaooza event that there is Manong’s Lechon Cebu here in the Metro. I was so happy when I saw the lechon and we immediately fell in line to sample it.
Waah! It is really Cebu’s lechon that I really like, it was tender, juicy, flavorful and no sauce needed. We loved it! And because of that, we left Blogapalooza early to eat our lunch. #nagutombigla Sayang, sana nagdala ko ng rice, hahaha!
Oh yes, we don’t need to pay shipping charge or we don’t need to fly to Cebu just to eat Cebu’s lechon. For your Cebu lechon needs, you may contact Manong’s Lechon Cebu at (632) 475-6875, 0932-8805600, 0927-7839920. They even deliver door-to-door within Metro Manila.
