Just after the Holiday, a friend of mine organized a thanksgiving dinner at her place just to thank all of her friends for the whole years' full of fun and happiness we shared. She knew that most of us missed "lechon/grilled pig" which we can rarely find it here, so she ordered this for our dinner. Unbelievable but yes, 12 people managed to ate 3/4 of the pig. It was ordered from a chinese restaurant through a Filipino contact and they cooked it from a big oven. No wonder it taste lechon but different from what we have in the Philippines cooked traditionally from a coal and the pig filled with spices on the tummy part.
After so many years of craving lechon, glad I had it early this year.
