It was after a day of touring that we went to Ayala Center Cebu to find a place to eat. I know that we should have went to the original CnT lechon place and not the mall franchise. But what can we do? We were dead tired and the mall was the closest place from where we were. Anyway, the lechon was not bad at all. But neither was it amazingly delicious. I was expecting to see a fireworks of sort upon munching on the soft meat but there weren’t any.
Even the boyfriend didn’t think it was that amazing of a lechon. I’m pretty sure I’ve tasted a better lechon somewhere here in Manila. To be fair, the skin was still crispy even if it has been on display for a while already.
The way the rice was served was pretty cool though. See the pile of suman-like items? Those are rice. Yes, they serve rice that way. I had a hard time unwrapping the rice out of that leaf because it was so tight. The rice inside looks like a suman too. I didn’t like the rice’s texture though.
For it’s affordable price, I wouldn’t push you away from this place. But neither would I encourage you because of its “drool-worthy” lechon.
