Acacia St, Cebu City
Type: Filipino | A la Carte
Hours: 10 AM to 10 PM daily
Must Taste: Lechon

When it comes to the best tasting Lechon in the country, we can all admit that Cebu definitely has the best.
And just like most people say, your Cebu food-tripping will not be complete without a taste of their world-famous lechon! Better believe it 'cause it's true. This whole roasted tender and flavorful pig meat with crunchy red skin that is cooked to perfection will give you heartache if you missed it.
However, as soon as you step outside Cebu, you'll see yourself having a hard time looking for the best Lechon therein. Some claim theirs are original while some gave their own take to make their own unique.
But when you dine at House of Lechon, you're assured with the best tasting lechon in town. Why? Aside from the elegant dining setting, this restaurant features the famous Carcar lechon paired with their signature lechon sauce. You can either dip it or pour directly to the tender meat. It's a sight to see indeed, and so is its taste.

Did we give you a good option? Or does it just made you hungry? ‘Cause we sure are craving now for a taste of Cebu’s pride cuisine.
