We went to AA Bbq the day before and this place is the 'higher class' version but more dedicated to Pork. The food was excellent value and taste. Their lechon is not too salty. I recommend their house special fried rice with pork and green mango.

It's quite popular in Cebu. Amongst all the lechon houses in Cebu, I believe it has the most attractive restaurant. It has an attractive logo and restaurant facilities. But that's about it. It's lechon is average, nothing to crave for.. it's other food is also average.

I had to give a thumbs up for this restaurant. It was my second time having my meals here and I'm sure I'll go back again if I go back to Cebu. Their popular zubuchon pork dish was tasty and price range was quite acceptable. Highly recommended!

This is the best lechon place in Cebu. Much much better than CNT. We first ate at the Mango Square branch where the servers gave honest advice on what to order. Zubuchon of SM Cebu has the nicest staff. We were almost out of battery and they charged our phones by the cashier. Then they moved us to a table... More

Bought a kilo of frozen lechon at the Cebu Mactan Airport while waiting for my flight back to Manila, for my family to have a taste of it. The lechon was packaged very neatly, really suitable for the travel back to Manila. Just heated the lechon the next day for lunch. Unfortunately, while the meat was very tender, it tasted... More

I thought that I could really enjoy what Anthony Bourdain raved about but was disappointed. The lechon was on the tough side and did not have that salty, savory, pungent taste of which the Cebuano inasal/lechon is famous for. The Escario Central branch offers good, attentive service; and an interesting selection of lechon inspired menu. Although, after having ordered chicharon... More

Maybe I was just used to the other famous Cebu's lechon that I usually take pains to bring home to as pasalubong whenever I'm in Cebu that I find Zubuchon lechon as needing some dip to go with the lechon...But the restaurant is still worth a visit!

Description
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. For a taste of Filipino cuisine, in clean, bright comfortable surroundings, visit us at any of our branches in Cebu.
