Where to get the best Cebu lechon in Manila

It’s hard to top Genevieve Hing’s lechon.
The first time I tried it was at Jappy Gonzalez’s place in 2007, and of course I got the number.

Seven years later, this is the only lechon we order at home.
What makes it different from other lechons is it doesn’t need any sauce. The skin is salty, crispy, and for someone who doesn’t normally eat lechon meat, I’m a fan.

The color is much different from other oily-skinned orange-toned lechons. This one is matte-colored and more natural-looking. My favourite part is wherever it is bubbly. That tells me it’s the crunchiest part.

Genevieve Hing started Abub’s Cebuana Native Lechon in December 2002.
In the beginning, she used the fly in lechons daily from Cebu. Now she has her own commissary in Kalawaan, Pasig that is manned by expert Cebuano lechon cooks.
Using a proven technique, the pigs are prepared with a tried and tested Cebu lechon recipe and roasted in a cemented roasting pit with charcoal.
It is very hard to top this pig!

Have eaten this lechon a few times and it is really good! I also love the lechon with truffle rice inside, different supplier though.

Perfect for the holidays! Nakakatakam.



They dont deliver, so I would drive all the way from Las Pinas to Pasig on New Year’s eve (or whenever there’s a family occasion) just to pick up lechon from their commissary. We’ve been ordering from them for years.
