One of Cebu’s top lechon houses, Rico’s Lechon is know for their spicy lechon – putting a hot twist to a Cebuano favorite! Cebu is known to have one of the tastiest lechons in the country and yes our roasted pigs fly to anywhere in the country as tourists bring home the local favorite back to their home towns! And one of the Cebuano brands that are favorite not just amongst the locals as well as tourists is Rico’s Lechon. They finally decided to open a restaurant and have customers order by the kilo of the awesome roasted pig. Here’s a quick restaurant walk through.

Choose between the Original recipe or the spicy one. The price are the same so why not have half the original or spicy if it’s your first time. 🙂

Lechon is great eaten with bare hands and dipped in your own concoction of vinegar, soy sauce, lemon/calamansi  juice and maybe a bit of shrimp paste? Dig in! 🙂
