You might have seen a lot of Lechon breads lately and I’m still finding out if the Lechon bread of Antipolo is the original? You can buy the smallest one at P10 per piece and you can order bigger sizes on a per order basis.

The bread comes in other animal forms like turtle, crab, and porcupine. Each animal is hand carved everyday in the bakery.

The bread is sweet and if you order in advance, you can order the bigger sizes which they usually put cheese bits inside.

One small-sized animal bread is good for one person and it is very filling. It is best served hot and with butter.

It is available in the small bakery store in Antipolo called Domalaon Bakery. They have been selling it for years.  Other bakeries in Cagayan de Oro, Butuan, Davao, Tuguegarao and in Villamor Air Base are also selling the Lechon bread but in different forms. Not sure which one started all this craze about the lechon and animal breads. Would you know?
