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