Lechon, a roasted suckling pig, has always been a staple highlight on the table of many Filipinos during celebrations since time immemorial. Over the years, various recipes and specialties became popular in different regions, but Cebu is definitely one of the cities that have made this dish hard to resist. The late chef and travel and food TV host, Anthony Bourdain had also visited Cebu to experience the famous lechon and described it as “the best pig ever!”

Rico’s Lechon has been consistently recognized as the “Best Cebu Lechon” by different award-giving bodies and is the only local food concept to have won the Asia-Pacific Stevie International Business Award held in Tokyo, Japan last 2017. Recently, they earned a Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor for consistently receiving great reviews on the travel site.
