Best Lechon Kawali

The Best Lechon Kawali in Cainta, Rizal. Eating pork is not a priority for me, due to health and religious purposes; I still prefer fish, chicken and beef deli. But almost a year ago, I and my friends discovered a restaurant at the back side of a wet market in Cainta, Rizal, which serves lechon kawali that we can’t resist. As in, we’re here daily!

Photo above shows how sumptuous this lechon kawali is. The skin is yellow-ish and looks so mouth watering. When I had my first bite, I easily noticed its texture and I was so amazed by its crunchiness.

First layer is crunchy, second layer is thin layer of fat which is talagang natutunaw sa loob ng bibig. And last later is the tasteful laman.

The resto uses a commercial lechon sauce, unlike other restaurants that has their own formula, Mang Larry (owner) made something that the taste of their lechon kawali would match with the taste of sauce.

This is not a fancy restaurant, it is a carinderia which makes it special.

How to Get Here: If you’re from Manila or Edsa area, you can take a ride in G-Liner, RRCG, Greenstar, FX and or jeepneys bound for Cainta or Antipolo. Alight in Robinsons Cainta (or Big R). Cross the foot bridge and proceed to the market area, at the back side of the Ready To Wear stores.
