After all the excitement, I left SM Cinema 2 hurt and honestly, quite hungry. Pretty sure you’ve guessed which movie I’m talking about. Anyway, my family and I were at The Block, SM North EDSA and the first place you would want to check out when you’re hungry is The Food Circuit located at the ground floor.
Why, you ask? Well, The Food Circuit features many restaurants and cafes which means that whatever type of dish you want, you will definitely find it there. So when my grandmother said she was craving for lechon, we checked each restaurant and something caught our eye. We saw an aluminum (I think) silver lechon and below it is a sign that says Manilachon, The Famous Lechon Porchetta.
Manilachon has a simple set up but their strikingly beautiful wall décor/ signage, lights and those two crispy lechon displayed near the entrance made the place so inviting. But what I like even more is the simplicity of their menu.
Want some Lechon Porchetta? You can order the classic or the spicy garlic one complete with rice (plain or Java – go for the latter), salsa, and their signature vinegar for Php 149. Another must-try is Manilachon’s awesome Saucy Ribs with Java Rice for Php173.
Honestly, all these dishes are so tasty and surprisingly tender! It turns out Manilchon’s lechon is BAKED NOT FRIED. In order to melt most FATS AWAY leaving you nothing but lean lechon, it undergoes 4 hours of SLOW COOKING. No wonder it’s tasty and tender!
Sadly, we don’t have that much free time, energy and perhaps even equipment at home. With Manilachon, it’s not a problem anymore! Whether you’re dining solo or with friends/family, you have a place at Manilachon. 😉
So, are you ready to try their Lechon Porchetta or perhaps their awesome Ribs?
