Lechon Belly (roasted pork belly)
Are you drooling right now? yes I know it’s a sin food with all those fats staring at you, lol. Who could refuse that crispy skin and the soft, mouth-watering and savory meat inside, well not me, hahaha. Let’s enjoy food while we can!
We ordered this for the second time at a lechon store near our subdivision. We know that Cebu, a province in the Visayas region is popular for this food as they are the pioneer (in my knowledge) for roasted pork belly, it’s popularity already reached Manila and there are many stores that cater to this famous delicacy.
It has lemon grass and other herbs inside for flavor, boneless and roasted for 3-4 hrs according to the seller until it reached the crispiness of the skin we all desired plus the softness and savory of the meat.
For me, it’s ideal to buy this instead of the whole roasted pig if you’re only have small gatherings with few guests. For this one it costs Php 1,750 ($35) with estimate weight of 3 kilos. For the sauce, you can choose between Mang Tomas lechon sauce or calamansi with toyo and chili.
