It was our second day of our Pasigarbo sa Sugbo Festival coverage in Cebu and our itinerary was pretty much loaded from Sun-up till sundown. Part of our Day 2 itinerary is a Lechon feast at CNT Lechon. It was hot and sunny when we visited the restaurant which was located right in front of SM Cebu. Upon arrival, we saw the restaurant’s veranda full of occupied tables and chairs and we thought right away that our lechon hunt was over but to our surprise, a table for 3 was vacant and waiting for us inside the restaurant.
After securing our seats, I immediately went to the counter to order some of their specialty foods. I have to get a number since a lot of people are waiting for their turn. After waiting for more than 10 minutes, I was able to order 3/4 kilo of Lechon, Ginisang Ampalaya, Cola’s and lots of “puso” rice. Puso in Cebuano, or Ta’mu in Tausug is made from rice that has been wrapped in a woven palm leaf pouch which is then boiled.
Since Lechon (roasted pig) is a common delicacy in almost all areas in the Philippines, I definitely know what it taste like but what makes CNT or Cebu’s lechon different?
Undeniably, CnT Cebu’s Lechon is the best lechon I’ve ever tasted. Unlike most lechon available in Manila restaurants, CnT’s lechon has a crunchy skin that crackles on every bite, meat are so tender and juicy.
In Cebu there’s no need for a liver sauce (savory dip) each time you eat lechon since it already has a flavorful taste.
It was really worth the long wait and the food is very affordable. Currently, CNT Lechon is the largest Cebu-based franchise that offers the famous Lechon Cebu (suckling pig).
