We went to the jungles of La Loma,the Lechon district of Manila to buy Lechon (Spit-Roasted Pig).
Lechon is the Spanish word for suckling pig. In the Philippines, it connotes a whole roasted pig.Lechón is often cooked during national festivities (known as fiestas), the holiday season, and other special occasions such as weddings, graduations, birthdays and baptisms, or family get-togethers. The lechón is usually the highlight and the most popular dish of these events. It is usually served with a liver-based sauce.
Since it’s Christmas and lots of families were buying Lechon,the prices were ceiling high.The smallest costs P2000 and the biggest was P6,500.
Here’s our Lechon being wrapped-up…getting ready to go home… Here, piggy, piggy…
This will be my entry for this week’s Lasang Pinoy Sundays which has a theme of Christmas.
