Lechon or the slow-roasted suckling pig is undeniably the most popular dish in the Philippines. Name every Pinoy celebration – from fiestas to birthdays to weddings to noche buena, it’s always the menu centerpiece! The pig, typically stuffed with anything from lemongrass to tamarind to garlic to onions and chives, is roasted on a bamboo spit for hours over a fire of open coals. We crave that orange/red-brown crisp skin color. But, how about a black-skinned lechon? Will you still eat it?
In General Santos, Lemongrass Lechon House offers a unique lechon experience called “Lechon Negra!” It is not your usual lechon because of its charcoal-colored body made possible by secret ingredients according to the owner. Its skin color seems to be intimidating however, unknown to many, it is very flavorful and aromatic. Several locals who have tried the dish become constant customers, proving that it is as tasty as our accustomed lechon. Lechon Negra can be enjoyed in three flavors: regular lechon taste; hot and spicy; sweet and spicy.
The lechon house also offers packages for your boodle fight at home. For orders and inquiries, you may visit the Facebook page of Lemongrass Lechon House. #SupportLocal
