Well, lechon is very famous here in our city (Cebu City). We like lechon so much. In special occasions, people here will prepare food and lechon is included of course. Pinoys what do you think?

well that is a common special food. without it in big occasions like weddings, baptism, fiesta, debuts, birthdays, etc. it will feel like something is missing. but that was before. not all people can afford lechon now as it is expensive. unlike before people really make it a point that lechon should be served on every occasion. the part that i only crave for in a lechon is its crispy skin other than that i do not really eat anything else from the lechon.
