Roasted Pig

I can’t believe I haven’t posted about this good find in Ho Chi Minh City: Roasted Pig or the famous Lechon in the Philippines. Even Anthony Bourdain swear by this mouthwatering dish:

In the Philippines, Lechon is a staple dish in events like birthdays and weddings. But yeah, sometimes just because. 😛

The best Lechon is crispy on the outside and soft and tender in the inside.

So far, the Lechon from Phat Thanh is the best we’ve tried here in Ho Chi Minh City. Hands down.

Nowadays, it costs 230,000 VND/kilo. And yesterday, we just had to order it for my mom’s 65th birthday. Best.Birthday.Ever.

For orders, just call Phat Thanh at 3838 8888.
