Agree! RT @katloveswriting: @TravelTimePH Butuan City. Not famous for this one but I think we have the best Lechon! — Susan Calo – Medina (@TravelTimePH) May 2, 2012
Truth is, there were only a few occasions where I tasted non-Butuan lechon and I forgot how they taste like. The lechon I enjoy most is the one from our suking lechonero. The skin is crispy and tasty. I can taste the spices in the meat (garlic, salt , pepper, lemongrass). Our lechon does not need any sauce although I prefer to dip it in vinegar with salt and garlic. The non-crispy part of the skin (tummy area) is not tough; it is soft like lechon paksiw. Yummy!When I wrote “the best”, it is based on my own experience and preference. I am not inciting argument with other regions who are also known to have a good recipe for lechon. This is just my love for my hometown showing (or my love for good food). I search through my folders of photos for lechon and I found the photos where some parts of it were already eaten. It only shows that we cannot resist lechon. This is the only decent lechon photo I have and there is a flower vase blocking it! The safest thing to say is: The best roasted pig is found in the Philippines!
