1. Peking Lechon/Pritchon - Similar to the chinese peking duck, this is deep fried skin and shredded meat that you wrap inside a tortilla together with your choice of vegetables (tomatoes, onions, green onions, cucumber, cilantro) and a special hoisin concoction.
2. Sinigang na Lechon
Rupert explaining the different lechon stations.
Fresh and crunchy vegetables - my favorites are the gabi (taro) and okra
This was really WOW! The broth was rich and thick. The lechon meat complimented it perfectly...the lemongrass and sampaloc/tamarind leaves really accentuated the soup! I had seconds of this!
3. Lechon Stirfry
4. Sisig Lechon
5. Ginataang Gulay with Lechon
6. Kangkong with Lechon Flakes
7. Inasal na Lechon Ribs
This is really my favorite part of the pig because it absorbs the most flavor and so I took a picture of it while they were still chopping it! I love the inasal marinade so I think it was a real tasty treat!
Aside from the pork feast, he also served other amazing creations:
Aligue Sushi topped with thinkly sliced kamias
Fried Mini Lumpiang Ubod
Ensaladang Mustasa - Mustard Leaves Salad with Salted Egg
Ensaladang Talong topped with tomatoes and alamang/bagoong
And to take out the "umay/suya" (unfortunately I cannot think of the direct translation of this tagalog word), they offered these sweet delights;
Buko Pandan Salad
Minatamis na Saging with Sago/Tapioca Balls
Fried Banana sprinkled with sugar
Happy Birthday Pip! Cheers to an innovative and superb feast!
Oink away!!! :) hahaha!
