Rico’s Lechon

At Rico’s lechon, the ingredients are simple. The most important one is the PIG, otherwise known as Filipino lechon. Cebu City, the “second city” of the Philippines, is home to the most delicious and succulent lechon in the Philippines.

For those that might not be familiar, lechon is whole roasted suckling pig and is very popular in Filipino cuisine. In our previous article Cebu lechon, the best pig ever according to Anthony Bourdain, we described our adventures and how they led us to Rico’s lechon, the best lechon in Cebu.

After tasting Cebu lechon at several restaurants in the city, we liked Rico’s lechon the best. In  keeping with our mission at Authentic Food Quest, we sought to learn more about Rico’s lechon and the people behind it. In this article, we go deep to understand what makes Rico’s lechon so special.
