When in Cebu, indulging in the country’s best roasted pig is on the top of anyone’s list of things to do. And Rico’s Lechon leads this gastronomic whim with its famous spicy lechon! The golden crispy skin and its juicy, flavorful meat is irresistibly delicious. So be sure to leave whatever diet you are on because you’ll surely give in to this Cebuano gastronomic experience.
Just recently, Rico’s Lechon opened its second dining restaurant in the metro. Located just a few minutes away (about 10 minutes) from Mactan-Cebu International Airport, it is the perfect dining stopover the moment you arrive in Cebu, and an excellent “pasalubong” destination to bring a piece of Cebu to your friends and families back home. And yes, Rico’s Lechon is thoughtful enough to offer the easy-to-carry take-away boxes so you can hand carry your pasalubong with ease and comfort.
Rico’s Lechon Mactan branch seats about 160 customers a time , set in a two-level 107 square meter dining area. The interiors are done by Shiela Solon with a concept that emanates a hispanic garden hacienda – with the patterned tiles , wood tones and wall grills with floral accents. The second floor dining can be converted to a function area for birthdays and celebrations.
Aside from everyone’s favorite spicy roasted pig, Rico’s Lechon Mactan branch now offers a wide array of food selections – from Cebuano favorites like Kalderetang Kanding, Trio of Seaweed Salad and Kinamatisang Buwad to Filipino and Western choices.
Rico’s Lechon Mactan branch is located at Mactan Promenade, Airport Road Lapu-lapu City (behind Chika-an). They are open daily from 10:00AM to 10:00PM. For inquiries and reservations, call them at (0995)618-9363 | 231-5580.
