Leonardo's Lechon

Who doesn't hyperventilate when they see lechon? I was lucky to have been invited (again) to join the lechon tasting of Leonardo's. I missed the first one so I made sure that I don't have any other schedule when I got invited again. Hahaha, that's how much I love lechon.

Also, I'm curious about this special kind of lechon by Leonardo's.



So what makes Leonardo's Lechon special? Aside from lechon meat and the crispy skin, this lechon is filled with sausages. How crazy right? But the dining experience is surreal. Its meat vs meat. And if you notice, the lechon has more lean meat than fat. It is also laden with herbs and spices to make it more flavorful. This lechon with sausage is called- Carnivore Lechon. It has kielbasa, hungarian, chorizo sausages, bacon slabs and roasted garlic.


And here is Leonardo's Lechon "matador." Manong hacks the lechon skin in perfect shapes! ;)


Leonardo's also offers meaty barbeque.



This dinuguan comes in free if you order a whole lechon. You can choose to have it cooked with innards or meat. The one pictured below are made with innards. I mean, I don't really love dinuguan and I'm very picky when eating dinuguan but I'm glad I mustered enough courage to try Leonardo's Dinuguan. Ang sarap!!!! I suddenly missed my lola's dinuguan. The innards tasted clean and doesn't have that funny smell and taste. The vinegar in the dinuguan is also not overpowering. This is really a perfect dinuguan. Two thumbs up. :)

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
