And here’s a teaser post about my CnT Lechon experience. Because I’m still enjoying my stay here in Davao after our Plantation Bay Cebu getaway, I cannot yet post decent photos of the lechon. I still haven’t uploaded my photos from my cameras. So here are photos I took via my iPhone.
I just recently discovered this watermarking App on my iPhone so I made use of it to label these CnT Lechon pictures. What they say about Cnt Lechon being good in itself is so true. Here’s much I can say, Anthony Bourdain wasn’t kidding when he uttered the words of Cebu’s lechon being “the best pig in the world.”
Every other lechon I’ve tried in my lifetime shrink in comparison to my CnT lechon experience. We did not even need sauce or sarsa as we devoured on this. Every single bite, especially of that shell-like thin crispy skin was heaven. The flesh was as flavorful as you can’t imagine a lechon could ever be. I’m aware the superlatives might sound over the top. But there’s just no denying it. Very sinful, but undeniably sooo good. I can imagine why someone from Europe who blogged about this said that it can be as addictive as tatuaje cigars.
And because we had to fly to Davao shortly after we arrived Manila from Cebu, I stashed a portion of the lechon (I shared a huge part of it with family) in the freezer. Here’s hoping it will still be delectable when we fly back home. If only for this lechon, I will gladly move to Cebu in a heartbeat.
