Goooooddddd lechon! Fast service by friendly staff. Affordable, yummy, clean decent place to dine in. Make sure to try the Kamias shake- it goes really well with the lechon meal. And in case you still crave for it - you can go for a last taste of it at the airport waiting/dining area.

With a menu heavily based on the pit roast pig or lechon (which is a word for a method or style of cooking very similar to roasting), Zubuchon is the ideal first dinner in Cebu when DB and I landed at Friday night. Unfortunately, we mostly had the leftovers of the pig because the skin was not crispy anymore. Zubuchon... More

There are a few outlets in cebu. The one i went to was at One Mango Square. A small outlet but with roaring business. It is suppose to be the best roast pork in Cebu. The pig is grilled with all kinds of herbs inserted in the belly until the skin of the pig becomes crisppy. The whole roast pig... More

At the first bite you'll notice that Zubuchon lechon isn't bursting with salt compared to the typical "cebuano lechon" its quite a different take - its a little more bland tasting as most cebu lechons go way overboard with salt sometimes, I like Zubuchon's flavor because I can control how salty my lechon can be with the condiments something I...
