Lechon Baboy!

Hungry!? Do you have your spoon and pork now? How about your plate? So you’re ready now? Because my new blog entry is all about eating that will crave you for surely.
Hmmm…. Ok… here it is…

Lechon Baboy - It’s connotes as a whole roasted pig or suckling pig (Spanish word).
This is undoubtedly as a symbol of feast because of being highlights dish in any festival.
And today the Lechon are now usually seen in any celebration not only in the festival.
The crunchy skin and juicy pork followed by dipping in a tasty gravy or vinegar is what makes Lechon more likely to eat, and that’s why they known it as the our Phililippines National Food.

During a third week of June in Balayan, Batangas they are literally celebrated a feast of St. John which is by dressing up their roasted pig Lechon and parade it into the town before they eat them as for symbolized of thanksgiving for the celebration.
