The General's Lechon First Store Opening


One of the Filipino's favorite comfort food for all occassion is lechon. Who will say "NO" to a tasty lechon in front of you? You will definitely try to pinch it in an instant or even grab a big part. 

I tried different kinds of lechon from Loyola to Cebu, although they are all having in common for me because it still pig who roasted. But I would say that General's Lechon is different because they have flavors which is the Original, Curry, Garlic and Chili-Garlic.  Sounds interesting right?


During the store opening in their first branch, we have unlimited lechon in the house and we tried the garlic lechon. I can't explain how good it is and can't even find a right words to describe it.

Wanna know more about them? you will definitely get interested not only with the lechon but with the story on how the business was started.

General’s Lechon started as a home-based lechon business ventured by couple Brian and Lynett Ong whose recipe originates from San Carlos City in Negros Occidenta.


The idea of a lechon business bloomed out of love for the owners, Bryan and Lynn. With all the fascination of the people for our country’s beloved roast pig, it had somehow convinced them to bring a different take on lechon delectation in Manila.


General’s Lechon is an inspiration paying homage to its ancestral beginning, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental. It is where Bryan Ong had her wife tried the best tasting lechon she had. Though not a big fan of lechons, she fell in love with the local Negros-style lechon. Since then she craved for it, and what can love not do, just to please his beloved. After coming back to Manila, they had Bryan’s family lechonero come over and prepare lechon for them.

It took them more than 50 different lechons to perfect the one the couple like. Transforming their backyard in Paranaque, into a lechonan, made them more serious and closely knitted in making sure they give out their best products. Sure, there are countless lechon marketers around but what set theirs apart is the quality of swine they use. It should be native pigs only. The lechon is subtly spiced
and seasoned with lemongrass, salt and leeks, among other secret ingredients.

From what used to be a small home-business, since 2007, it is now one of the most loved lechon brand in the metro and ranked as the no. 1 lechon of Spot.ph for 2012. Foodies and lechon connoisseurs rave about their lechons. With four types of flavors filling up the lechons’ stomach, the Original, Chili-Garlic, Curry and Garlic, customers have more options to enjoy their lechon.


With expansion on the top of their game, more products are now filling up their store shelves to give the utmost satisfaction in enjoying lechon in various ways from jarred Lechon Paksiw to Atchara.


Lynn also have put her hands in roast chickens, which like their lechons are flavored. 

“It is always advised that calls are to be made ahead, like a week to reserve at least one lechon for an event, for regular customers know how to order because orders tend to pile up on our calendars. We do respect each of our clients specific needs for their lechon degustation.” 
- Bryan Ong

With these in mind, a new joint was set to be open, to stand as a pick up station for ordered lechons. Strategically positioned at a gas station in Makati to give ease to customers getting their lechons or even buying by the kilos. While making sure even a kilo of sliced lechon of your choice make it to your plate still palatable.



Today, General's Lechon opens its first branch near Edsa-Pasay Road, Makati where people can buy their flavored lechon in kilos.



Learn how to eat Lechon with General's Lechon way.

Take your grilling FLAVOR to the next level!

We don't have a perfect family and almost don't have time to see each other much even on weekends but there are times that we surprise to see other family members that makes our family complete even once in a blue moon. During that time, we spend a Sunday cooking barbecue's and spending the day with laughter and exchanging stories.

We used to grilled Liempo in the back of the house while kids are playing. My simple recipe of Grilled Liempo, goes like this; I marinate the Liempo in Kalamansi with soy sauce and sometimes I put 7-up or Sprite in it. Chilled in the fridge for about 30 minutes to 1 hour before I grill it.

And because it was grilled, it was a blast in the family. Sometimes we used to have chicken, and sometimes it depends on our mood. Oh well, I think I need to learn more about grilling and other things to do it. Good thing I heard about this McCormicj Grill Nation.


And I like to try the new McCormick Grill Mates Cajun Seasoning Mix because it has the taste of New Orleans can now be enjoyed in your grilled beef, pork, chicken with McCormick Cajun Seasoning Mix. It contains choicest spices such as paprika and oregano to give your grilled meats a distinct southern flavor.

What are you waiting for?

Be a part of the McCormick Grill Nation on April 7, 4pm onwards at the Bonifacio High Street!

The event is open to the public but food samples will be given to participants who purchase 5 packs of McCormick Grill Mates Seasoning Mix.

This event by McCormick tries to bring families and friends together…

Taste The Contemporary Comfort Food of URBN


It was great to try new sets of food that you will surely keep coming back and ask for more once you have tasted it. Chef Benjo Tuason have prepared a contemporary comfort food for the bloggers, one great night on late February.

URBN Bar and Kitchen is located at 28th Street at The Fort in Bonifacio Global City.

I was the first who came but not so excited because my office is just near like a 3-5 minutes walk from our office building. Anyway, when I get there, I was so amaze with its interiors. What I have noticed is their big chairs and long long table in the center of the smoking area in front of a wide screen television. The light is dimmed while there are 2 bars in both ends if the place.




We are able to transfer in the non-smoking area where they served the foods that we are going to review. We have assorted crostinis, caramelized onions and bacon tartlets, URBN's House Salad and Scored Scalops, Spicy Shrimp Cocktail.





Followed by Australian Rack of Lamb, Sticky BBQ Ribs and Mini Curried Shrimp  Burger.






Next is the Crispy Skin Tasmanian Salmon and Mac and Choreese. 


Of course the dessert are the Classic Souffle, Chocolate Lava Cake and Salted Caramel Cheesecake.





My favorite is the Australian Rack of Lamb because the meat is really tender and juicy. You will taste the herbs and the horsendish crust, roasted pumpkin and a gardiz yogurt that sauce that complements the lamb very well.


The Mini Burgers is also a must try and Chef Benjo says that it was one of the favorite in URBN. Mac and Choreese was a blast.




URBN Bar and Kitchen is a place where you can dine and have a good time with your friends. You can enjoy great ambiance where you can chill out with your friends while enjoying great taste of food that you really must try! accompanying of wonderful sounds from their DJ's.
