Carcar city a found place to enjoy one of the best lechon here in
Cebu, got some of it!
Hmmmm Last sunday was a good family day, We went to Moalboal fourth
municipality from the 3rd district part of Southern Cebu.
Moalboal was made famous because of its classy white sand beaches, diving spots
and other water adventures. I could say that Moalboal is renowned to be a
good tourist destination for both local and foreign nationals. Its
vast coastline and really wonderful white sand beach plus the underwater secret paradise would
really make you fall in love with it. Moalboal is approximately 90
kilometers from Cebu city for about 3-hour
drive. But from my place, I only live in and we only took 2 hours to get there. You
won't really notice the time while you are traveling, the green mountains that
would really sparkle onto your eyes. The clear blue skies that reflect the
gloomy horizons and breathe of very fresh air would surprise and resemble your
soul and your heart and makes you realize how God made all possible for living
and for enjoyment. San
On our way to Moalboal, we decided to buy Lechon from Carcar public market, sad thing is, I don't have pictures in the market scenario, i left my phone with my mom and hadn't took out pictures but i have pictures of the Lechon that we bought.
What is a lechon?
- A lechon is a suckling pig in bamboo poles roasted over live charcoals. (It’s my own interpretation on how Lechon is prepared)
-It actually originated in
-It is roasted and stuffed with some special herbs and spices.
-It is done until the skin turns reddish brown and the flesh becomes tender.
Lechon is really good with Atchara also spelled as Achara or Atsara. This serves as a side dish, it is made up of pickled unripe papaya, carrot,ginger, bell pepper, and onions, mixed with vinegar, sugar syrup and salt.
My pictures of lechon Carcar, i know you can't see it clearly, I was to excited to swim that time so, haven’t pictured it well.
