We serve roast pork as the main dish, with nearly three dozen other Filipino dishes that are either include roast pork or are pork-free complementary dishes. We offer an extensive seafood menu in three of our restaurants as well as many vegetable dishes and natural local fruit shakes. This is the roast pork that Chef and TV Host Anthony Bourdain declared as "The Best Pig, Ever!" On his No Reservations episode on the Philippines.

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner. The lechon was good. Lot of fats though. I was just hoping there was a meal good for 2 persons. Since there are a lot of leftover from the one we have ordered. It was worth the visit! The staff was also accommodating! gonna go back here!

Zubuchon offers not just mouth watering lechon but also other Filipino dishes. All the food and drinks we ordered when we visited here were delicious. They have a dessert plate that has a variety of traditional desserts and this is to die for. We really enjoyed the meal that we had here and would definitely recommend this place for those... More

Lechon is a must in Cebu! This is a chain and is wonderful for take out. It is also a great place to sit down and enjoy some lechon without the crowds of some of the other places. I did have one time that they did not have enough lechon for me to take out because they were waiting on... More

Every visit to cebu deserves a trip to zubuchon. I like that the lechon comes with ambience, good service and fixings like the langka siding or kangkong and you can sip kamias juice to counter the richness of the pork. And that you can get authentic carcar chicharon while waiting. Better yet the menu gets updated. But as to the... More

With Cebus letchon as they're specially, I am proud to say they have one of the best in the city. I love the versatility and the wide offering this establishment offers to their clients. From the traditional latching to the contemporary Boneless latching. The quality of their food is unquestionable it even got a thumbs up from Chef Anthony Bourdain,... More

The taste of their lechon gives comfort to Cebuanos who miss Cebu so much..... crispy, tasty and finger licking good. Our take-out for Manila was still OK and tasted better when reheated in a turbo broiler than in a microwave oven. The staff are very prompt in attending to customers especially those who are in a hurry.

I have to admit, yes they do have crispy skin for their lechon but if you're looking for the authentic taste of Cebu lechon, this is not the place. This place offers lechon in a gourmet way of cooking lechon. Prices are high due to ingredients that they are using on the lechon like adding olive oil and some herbs... More
