ULTIMATE TASTE TEST DISCOVERIES (Last of the Series)
Having lechon in the Ultimate Taste Test was a very good idea. One whole native lechon was served by Sabroso Lechon, which got a rating of 3.6 out of 5.0. Most people liked it because of its crispy skin and flavorful meat (which was a bit salty) -- characteristic of how lechon is made in Visayas. Some rated it "Just OK" because they did not notice the difference between Sabroso's offering and other lechons out there.
Personally, I was pleasantly surprised that the skin remained crispy after 3-4 hours after first serving it. However, they used a lechon sauce that did not match well with the meat. It's better to eat it without the sauce. In future Ultimate Taste Test events, we will make sure to have one lechon supplier that can offer a unique lechon taste. :)
Sabroso Lechon – Incredibly Flavorful Lechon
by your Lechonero, Charlie & Manolo
Sabroso Lechon is made more special with native pigs, assuring meat that’s lean and tasty. Its distinct flavor comes from only the freshest herbs and spices unique to Western Visayas. The lechon is roasted slowly and steadily above coals to give you evenly cooked meat and notably crisp skin. This makes Sabroso Lechon a reason enough to celebrate.
Sabroso is a Spanish word for delicious, tasty, agreeable or pleasant.
Sabroso Lechon started last October 2008. We started cooking lechon during weekends and personally delivering (even just a kilo!) to friends and families. In Jan. 2009, we were featured in “Boy & Kris TV Morning Show”. Blogs and our multiply site have helped us in introducing and showcasing our lechon.
Our first outlet was opened at 1237 E. Rodriguez corner Tomas Morato, Brgy. Kristong Hari, Quezon City last December 2008. We started serving meal-size lechon on April 2009. Currently, we are adding more food & side dishes to our menu.
So what is the Sabroso Lechon difference?
Sabroso Lechon only cooks quality, free-range native pigs. Our lechon is cooked with stuffed herbs in its closed belly. It retains heat well compared to “open-belly lechon”, keeping your lechon order fragrant & warm upon serving. We always finish cooking your lechon closest to your serving time possible. “Just-cooked” lechon is what we all want.
Sabroso Lechon is the first lechon store to deliver 1 kilo or more to Quezon City, San Juan, Mandaluyong, Pasig, Makati & Manila. Our lechon is always sold according to your ordered size (excluding the herb stuffing). We accept “same-day lechon orders” (except during holidays) -- just order 3-4 hours before.
