CnT Lechon Restaurant

Cebu's Finest: Lechon Cebu on CnT
Right across SM Cebu City

CnT Lechon Restaurant

Cebu Lechon:

It can unite people of different faiths (Muslims and Catholics?). If consumed regularly, it can solve the problem of overpopulation and dwindling funds for pensions (heart attacks). Those assertions are ridiculous and far-fetched, but I can’t help it. Lechon from Cebu is just so wonderful. Cebu lechon has a different kind of saltiness to it. The balat tastes good whether it’s crispy or already makunat. Freshly chopped or made into paksiw (or sinigang -yes, Sinigang na Lechon), Cebu lechon is the one thing that will complete any trip to Cebu.

Ate!!! dahan - dahan !!!!!

Among the tourists, the “brand” we’re all familiar with is CnT Lechon. This is probably because there are several CnT branches scattered all over Cebu. Inside SM City Cebu, they can be found at the supermarket foodcourt. Likewise, at Ayala Center Cebu, CnT also have a stall at the mall’s foodcourt. Of course, their lechon is superb, hence the popularity of CNT among the locals and visitors alike.

The famous "Cebu Lechon"
We went to the CnT restaurant that’s found right across SM Cebu, along Juan Luna Extension. It’s a popular dining place during the weekend, and even though we arrived at 1pm, it was still packed with families having weekday lunch. Ordering is done at the counter, where you tell the girl behind the counter how much lechon you want to order, and pick out any additional dishes you want to go with it, turo-turo style.

1st group are done!!!!!

2nd group is still eating!!!!!!

ok let check this last table !!!! what do you think? hehehehehe!!!!!

Lechon!!Unlike in Manila, Cebu Lechon is eaten with vinegar and not with sarsa. I remember how I was apprehensive about eating lechon without sarsa, but when I took a bite, I finally understood why. The Cebu lechon has a distinct flavor — it’s so good there’s no need for any sauces! But the best thing to pair with lechon is pusu. Pusu is rice steamed in strips of coconut leaves woven into a small container. Pusu sizes differ, but usually it’s the size of a closed fist. Normally you can see pusu hanging in bundles. They cut it off from the bunch when you order one.

Thinking of bringing home a Taste of Cebuano (as CnT’s tagline say)? CnT have boxes for their lechon, so you can bring home the best Cebu lechon for friends and family. Just tell the staff behind the counter that you want it boxed when you order. You can even order a whole lechon from CnT, and have it sent via air cargo!
