Where to Find the Best Crispy Lechon Under P6, 000 in Manila

Christmas is a season for family reunions and lechon will never lose its place at the middle of the Noche Buena buffet table. Expect the guest to fall in line and get a piece of that mouthwatering crispy skin, tempting even those on diet.
And Cash Mart’s VIP (Very Important Pig) is Elarz Pambansang Lechon!
Elarz Pambansang Lechon
The fairly thin skin hides a generous fluffy layer of fat that melts with exploding flavors of spices right from the very first bite. With tender and moist meat, experience just the right saltiness complimenting the spices and lemongrass stuffed in the pork for 24 hours before it gets slowly roasted over the charcoal oven for six hours.
The pigs are purchased from the local farmers who feed them organic food to guarantee 30% less in cholesterol. For those who love lechon, but are on strict diet (either by personal choice or doctor’s orders), this is a happy surprise. While it is already tasty and delicious on its own, the special lechon sauce can still give it a unique twist. No wonder why high-end hotels such as City of Dreams, Manila Hotel and Shangri-La Makati serve this lechon to their guests.

Sabroso’s uses native pigs to assure a one of a kind tasty lechon. The crispiness stays even hours after it has been served unlike the other lechon brands. This is perfect if you expect some guest to come later on the party. The tasty meat and the fatty layer under the skin seems to melt in your mouth as you succumb to the heavenly mixture of herbs. It has a small dine-in restaurant where you can order other dishes such as dinuguan and bopis.

Jun & Jun’s Cebu Lechon Plaza
Sink your teeth into the flavorful meat their lechon has to offer. Surprisingly enough, the crispy skin and meat has least oil compared to others though the fat naturally separates from the brown skin. Jun & Jun’s only uses native pigs from Aparri, Cagayan and Masbate. It is perfect to a freshly made liver sauce as the meat’s flavor comes from anise, spring onions, pepper, salt and garlic. They are able to deliver tasty lechons without any lemongrass. Though they hail their lechon as ‘Cebu’s lechon,’ they use a technique from Batangas to create caramelized skin without any sugar.
