Considered as one of the Filipino’s most loved dishes, the Lechon can be traced to it’s Spanish origin. From the Spanish word “leche” which means “milk”, lechon is a suckling pig roasted on hot charcoal. Although it has many variations, the lechon remains the highlight of most special occasions in the Philippines. It’s something you can expect to sample in fiestas, weddings, birthdays, baptisms, and other holiday celebrations. Think of it this way, if there’s a reason to celebrate, the lechon is a must.
It’s a dish one can never miss because most of the time, the lechon is displayed exactly the way it was roasted, traditionally, it even comes with a whole shiny red apple in it’s mouth. In recent years, the lechon belly roll has become a more popular option mainly because of it’s affordability. It’s also said to be the most tender and tasty part of the lechon. The fat is mostly concentrated in the belly which makes it the most flavorful part, and this is where the concoction of herbs and spices are stuffed.
Most shops offering lechon expect good business returns all year round with the holiday seasons being the busiest. The competition can be tough, so shop owners adapt by being more creative be it in marketing or product development. Lechon ice cream is available in some shops in Davao. If that doesn’t speak for creativity, I’m not sure what will!

Some shops boast of Lechon that doesn’t need a sauce. While for most, their sauces are highlighted to differentiate and set their lechon product apart from the other competitors. For instance, one shop in Davao is well known as having the best liver sauce. Sometimes, the sauce makes or breaks the dish. So this explains a great deal for the unspoken fight for the title of having the best lechon sauce in town.
Even without any sauce though, a great tasting lechon must have a shiny crispy roasted skin that’s red to golden brown in color, and as one bites over the crispy part, they’ll discover a meat so tender and tasty- the juice oozing from the various herbs and spices (most common ingredients are lemon grass, bell pepper, onions and garlic) that steep into the meat while it was roasting.

Although, one lechon house in Davao boasts of spearheading the dial-a-lechon fever in the city. It promises to deliver a hot, juicy and tender pig roast in just three hours.
