Found on the blogs – a photo that has just made my jaw drop.

Filipino comfort food: crispy roasted red pig – skin so crisp it looks like sugar-candy. Head over to Jun Blog for the post (and where you can find this dish in San Francisco area). Plus check out this post on Lechon on La Loma.

    Wow! So happy to see a Filipino dish mentioned here. I hope you can try that one time. Sinful, but very delicious!

    Lechon from the Philippines tops Anthony Bourdain’s Hierarchy of Pork.

    I grew up eating Lechon. It’s pretty much a staple at every Filipino party so I love this stuff. The skin is definitely the best part. I haven’t found a place here in FL that serves it so I’m hoping that maybe one day. I also keep a bottle of Mang Tomas Lechon Sauce in the fridge. It’s a great dipping sauce!One of my friends has a recipe for it using Butt Roast but she won’t give it to me unless I visit her. Needless to say, I’m planning a trip to DC to visit her for a few days and get the recipe.

    Glad you’re exploring Filipino food! I’ve been featuring Filipino food on my blog and so far so good.
