It’s disgusting that House of Lechon allows marketing scammers to ask their customers to fill up a raffle stub. We received a call earlier today saying we won 3d2n accommodation in any Astoria in and outside Philippines. Saying that the stub was filled up in...More

Lechon was yum but we were told that it wouldn’t be crispy and this already was a turn off. A lechon needs crispy craquelin, without it it is not lechon, disappointing

Cebu Letchon usually good on its own. but there is always an options for condiments if you want a local taste you can ask the staffs to help you make a "saw-sawan".

Yes there is lumpia but the Cebuano lumpia called ngohiong. Delicious. You must try it if you visit the place.
