Lechon Lunch

I got a treat for lunch today :)

Normally, lunch at work would consist of a sandwich and a piece of banana. This is part of my ongoing campaign to eat healthy. Well, I took a break today.

Joining a couple of colleagues as we made a trip to Quezon City to try a certain restaurant, a big brown signage caught my eye the moment we arrived at the venue, Sabroso: Incredibly flavourful lechon , it read. In an instant, I recognized the restaurant as as this has been mentioned a couple of times by my good friend Jane.

Who can ever say no to lechon..most especially one so crispy and mouthwatering?

Standing outside the restaurant, we unanimously decided to give it a try and to have lechon as an appetizer. Since we didn't want to fill our stomachs up right away, we ordered a one-fourth kilo (Php. 140) of crispy lechon to share.

Service was quick, it took them less then five minutes to bring the platter of lechon to our table. We surveyed the crispy, shiny lechon skin that covered up the rest of the tender-looking pork meat platter.

It was the first time that I actually had lechon as an appetizer and without an occasion. Since lechon, a local roasted suckling pig dish, is a main staple in celebrations such as birthdays, family reunions even Christmas parties, I'm glad that Sabroso offers smaller servings for those who just wants to satisfy their sudden lechon cravings.

I can't wait to go back soon and hopefully be able to try their Lechonero Meal which is a great deal at Php 120. This meal includes a good serving of lechon, fragrant rice, soup and lemongrass iced tea.

I'll definitely be back, Sabroso!
