Lechon is one of the great legacy of Spain here in the Philippines. Normally we see Lechon in occasions like wedding, fiesta, graduation, etc.. In the Philippines, lechon is a staple food for celebrations.
Lechon is traditionally cooked in a open roast setting, the whole pig is skewered in a bamboo and manually rotates the bamboo as the pig cooks/roasted. Cebu has the best Lechon in the whole country and as per Anthony Bourdain says "best pig in the world...". Cebuanos takes great pride on their lechon as they have many variants and one example is the boneless lechon.
