One of the Cebu’s best delicacies is the Lechon Baboy. Lechon is a dialect term for one whole roasted pig. This is very famous and sought after main dish in occasion such as fiestas, birthday, weddings and the like here in the Philippines. It is famous for unique taste of crispy pig’s skin and tender meat.
CNT Restaurant is famous to produce the best and tastiest lechon in the province of Cebu. Most foreign and local tourist has their craving satisfied at the CNT Lechon located in front of SM City Cebu. It has exceeded most of the tourist expectations because of its right crispy skin and meat that is so tender and juicy.
The difference of Cebu lechon version is that you don’t need sauce to dip it like many Filipinos do. The roast pig is actually injected with salt and flavourings while being roasted making the sauce unnecessary. The pig is slowly over a charcoal pit and basted with a dressing that yields brown crunchy crispy skin it produces crackling sound when munched.
