Interesting. Both the opening post and the link bob made refer to Lechon as Roast Pig. I thought Lechon was "roast' as in Lechon Manok was roast chicken and Lechon Baboy was roast pig. What's the true story on that?

Is Lechon, by itself, automatically considered to be pig?

Growing up in the states, we always referred lechon as roasted pig. It wasn't till i got here that lechon referred to manok or baboy. lechon being how it's cooked.

Yes! Lechon used by itself generally refers to baboy! If you are speaking of other roast items like manok, you should specify.

"Lechón is a pork dish in several regions of the world, most specifically Spain and its former colonial possessions throughout the world. The word lechón originated from the Spanish term leche (milk); thus lechón refers to a suckling pig that is roasted. Lechón is a popular cuisine in Spain, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, other Spanish-speaking nations in Latin America, as well as the Philippines in Asia. The dish features a whole roasted pig cooked over charcoal."

I love Cebu Lechon!!!!
i tried Zubuchon, really cruncy and a bit spicy compared to the typical lechon. :)
My Other Favorites: Cnt, Alejo's :shitstormretarded:
If you need numbers to call: lechon suppliers' numbers

You want to know what the local Filipino's would think when they see those images?

They wonder what happened to the rest of the pig and consider it to be a waste. Have you seen the remains of a Lechon Baboy after a party?
Not even the bones are left...they use it for stew the next day.
