Why is Cebu Lechon the best?

Basically, Lechon is a whole roasted pig. Prepping and roasting this Filipino favorite takes time and proper technique. It’s usually prepared and roasted for special occasions and events, such as anniversaries, birthday parties, reunions, weddings, etc. It’s not uncommon to find this carnivorous feast as the centerpiece of banquets, because of its mouth-watering taste and because of what it symbolizes – success, prosperity, and glory. 

Traditionally, the whole spit-roasted pig is let to roast above a bed of charcoals for about 2 – 4 hours –– depending on the size of the pig.

Throughout the duration of the roasting process, the meat is continuously being smothered in its own juice and ingredients that were inserted inside its belly; while concurrently, the skin is slowly being transformed into this crispy and crunchy tidbit. 

As a result, you’ll be letting your teeth sink into the scrumptious and succulent meat of the Lechon; while you concurrently crunch on its crispy skin! Hmmmmmm. Yum! Yum!

Brought by the Spaniards during the Colonial Period, Filipinos throughout the years have honed their skill to perfection in roasting the perfect centerpiece for their feasts and festivities. 

As we have adopted the art of roasting Lechons, Filipinos have experimented and created their own variants and versions of Lechon. Hence, it is common to see different kinds of Lechons per region or area; with each having their own distinct ingredients used; and with each having their own roasting techniques applied. 

However, when it comes to Lechon popularity and arguably being hailed as the best variant, “Cebu Lechon” would definitely be the one to top off the list!
