10 No-Fail Places for Boneless Lechon Belly in Manila

Have a feast!


 

(SPOT.ph) While we can think of a handful of occasions to have this all-time favorite dish, there’s nothing like a succulent slab of lechon belly during the cheery Christmas holidays. Lechon, whether it’s had whole, stuffed, or deboned, is a feast not just for the palate, but also for the eyes. Check out these 10 places for your boneless lechon belly fix in the Metro.

 


 

Zubuchon

Zubuchon has been serving up some mighty-fine Filipino comfort meals since they opened their first Manila branch in early 2017, but one of their must-try specialties has got to be their take on the boneless lechon belly. They’ve stuffed and seasoned a classic pork belly with their signature herbs and spices, roasting it until it’s a beautiful golden brown. You can dine in or take home a serving of their Boneless Lechon (P290/small, P590/medium, P880/large), served with their special chili oil, soy sauce, and vinegar.

 

Zubuchon has branches at Talisay Street, Barangay San Antonio, Makati City, and UG/F Building A, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.

Belly Bob’s

Belly Bob’s is another lechon joint with its roots in Cebu, but it has thankfully branched out in Manila.

You can enjoy their lechon belly meals when you dine in, or you can bring some home for sharing (P199/quarter kilo, P398/half kilo, P597/three-quarters kilo, P795/kilo).

Porchetta MNL

Porchetta MNL whips up some pretty mean, meaty dishes that are perfect for building up that holiday excitement.

Try the Chef’s Porchetta (P169), served with rice, soup, their signature salsa verde, and salad. There are also set meals for anyone who prefers to have more sides to pair up with their lechon belly.

 

Porchetta MNL is at 47 Visayas Avenue corner Congressional, Quezon City.
