Love, Love, Lechon

Philippines

Spain ruled the Philippines for over three hundred years, impacting its way of life down to the food on Filipinos’ tables. The Lechon, Spanish for roasted suckling pig, is one of the most iconic dishes the Philippines has adopted. Family get-togethers, birthdays, fiestas, you name it—expect to see Lechon at the center of a long table overflowing with Filipino specialties. The Philippine Lechon comes in different varieties, stuffed with flavors of lemongrass, onions, and garlic. Cebu may be the country's prime Lechon city, but there are also places around Manila offering this traditional pork recipe we’ve all grown to love. Taste the best of Lechon at these spots once your cravings strike!
