    ahhh the classic lechon baboy.... I don't crave so much of it as I grew up eating lechon at every occassion. I saw how my lola prepared the roast pig (from killing it to roasting it! my lola is very strong! she alone does the killing)... one word comes in my mind every time I see pics of lechon - LOLA :)... nice pic apo :like:

    I really enjoy a well cooked Lechon. I have eaten some wonderfully tasty and mouthwatering examples and have also tasted some dreadful examples. Price, as always, is not a good indicator of quality.

    I just seem to enjoy it all the time when I'm over there, Peter.

    My wife notices the difference though.
    We ate some in Lapu Lapu City early 2011 and I had so much.................It was Sinulog time.
    Rochelyn said it was much better on her island.

    I've got an almost identical photo Mike.
    I'm going to see if I can find it.

    Last year (or was it the year before) for my wife's birthday I ordered one pre-cooked from London. Bit expensive but mighty tasty. Plenty of take home for everyone.
    Got a photo of that too somewhere.

    I will find the photos soon.

    Pete,

    What was the taste of lechon baboy like in England compared to Phils?

    When I eat it in Phils it has the same wonderful taste that pork used to have when I was a kid in England, eating it at my Nan's.

    Like Dom, I am putting on weight just thinking about it :erm:

    Everyone said it was great. The skin was crispy and quite thin and the meat was good. I think we paid around £250. Yes, bit pricey ,but it was a treat and made a nice centrepiece and talking point.
    But you're right a nice one in Philippines does taste different. Same with chicken. The very best chicken I had was a native chicken from my sis-in-law. Fed almost exclusively on corn and meal. She BBQ'd it on the beach over charcoal in a hole in the sand. Just wonderful.
