Lechon (Spit-Roasted Pig) for Christmas

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.

We finally settled for a medium sized one that costs P4,500. That’s what sis and I contributed to the Christmas feast.

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.

Happy Sunday!
