I Arrived at friend’s birthday surprise almost 12 midnight, just few minutes before her surprise birthday.
We started eating past 12mn, 3 hours later after the lechon belly was delivered. The skin is still very crispy and the meat is moist and tender.
I was not able to take photos of the lechon because it was swiftly attacked —heheh! In less than 30 minutes the lechon was almost finished.
Maybe it’s the result of people drooled over it for hours. But, since there’s a lot of food on the table it must also be because the lechon belly is really GOOD!
It was the first time I have appreciated Philippines lechon in Singapore. I was hooked, despite that I already eaten a lot from another girl friend’s party I attended earlier.
Over the years, there are quite number of Philippines lechon stalls have been launched in Singapore and some had permanently closed.
Being Cebuana, I grew up in a City where lechon is a staple food in every occasion. My mom, at times served it on normal days too. That explained my hard to please taste buds.
I can’t help but ask where did they ordered the lechon belly. They answered me “where else? Of course from Don Lechon”.
Two weeks later, I visited the branch for early dinner.
I love the location, not only because it’s near to my place (few kembots away) but generally I love the ambiance. It’s perfectly at the end of the stretch from where Little Vietnam Resturant & Cafe is situated.
You can comfortably eat with friends. And they also accept booking for gatherings.
Lechon Meal with Rice (S$8.50)
This is good for one person, served with 2 types of sauces, home-made gravy and sweet & spicy soya sauce.
The pork is imported to make sure that they served high quality of meat.
Sisig Meal with Rice (S$8.50)
We had tried the Sisig, too. It’s crispy and intentionally made not spicy. You can add some chili for your liking.
Chopped/Whole Lechon Belly (S$38/kilo)
This is the lechon belly I’d tried from my friend’s birthday. You can order whole or half. You have to call them for early reservation.
I had little chitchat with one of the owners of Don Lechon. They don’t try to imitate the Cebu’s lechon but theirs is originated from Cherry-Vic Lechon in Manila.
They take pride on their own unique preparation process that maintain the juiciness of the pork while the skin is crispy. And the sauces are home-made liver sauce and sweet & spicy soya sauce.
More Menu: Whole Lechon, Lechon Paksiw, Bopis and Crispy Pata.
Lechon Sinigang is one of their best sellers. I shall return to try it.
