Post a survey on Facebook for Filipinos overseas asking which Filipino dish they wish to eat now and I'm sure, "Lechon" (roasted whole pig) would rank among the top 5 dishes.
5 months into our expatriate assignment and two months before Christmas, and our family as well as other families are already planning their itineraries on their Christmas vacation in the Philippines. What to do and where to go wouldn't be complete without "What to eat"....Tapa King, KFC, Jollibee, Lechon, etc.
However, cravings for Lechon means cravings for Filipino "Lechon or Lechon Cebu or Lechon Iligan". It means we just miss the Pinoy Pig. But if you can't wait to sink your mouths into juicy roasted Filipino pigs how about an alternative while waiting. Yes, Vevey has "Lechon" kabayan! Portugese "Lechon" can be bought from Poulet A Guia.
