Ok, everybody's raving about Rico's, which is why whenever we passed by they were sold-out. But CnT was not bad either...makes me wonder how much better Rico's is?

It has its own system, everyone is yelling (not unpleasantly), it looks like there's no line (but there is), you're not sure if you're ever going to get served (but you will), you have to nab a table even if its in the process of just being cleaned, it's really hot in the resto.. WE LOVE IT! Once you get... More

I had to stop by and grab this grub from recommendations and I was convinced that CnT Lechon is the best-tasting, juicy lechon in Cebu. I loved the rice wrapped in leaves with it although the sauce that came with it was limited to fish sauce. Oh but you can request for ketchup or some other sauces you want. I... More

I love the crispiness and salty taste of CNT lechon. Local tourists flock to their restaurant to take out lechon as gifts ("pasalubong") for family and friends back home. They are one of the best lechon houses in the province of Cebu. Truly Cebu is the lechon capital of the Philippines. Surroundings are clean and place easy to find. Price... More

One of the lechon places where the locals go to, its good enough, bit still not one of the best. Lechon is crispy and flavorful but a bit too salty for my taste. But if you are too lazy to drive all the way to Celia's in Talisay, then CnT is good enough.

There are CNT stalls in the malls but my friends insisted we try their branch to ensure crispness of the skin. We chose the one near SM mall. True enough, the skin was crisp and the meat soft and moist. It was very good and fresh. We also had their lumpiang ubod and noodles, which were nice accompaniments to the... More

Tried several Cebu Lechon brands but CnT remains a favorite. I'm not into condiments and this lechon is so flavorful that you really wouldn't need any! So I make it a point to buy this when I'm in Cebu or get my friends to buy me kilos when I know they're coming from there.
