Zubuchon by Market Manila here in Cebu

October 18, 2009


Please do try the tastiest lechon since CNT here in Cebu. Market Manila, the country’s Anthony Bourdain, is serving Cebu palates in Banilad Town Center, Cebu from 10am-1pm. Zubuchon is priced at P385/kilo. Anthony Bourdain, world reknowned chef, called it “the best of the best” among all roasted pigs he has tasted.

Zubuchon is about doing things the old-fashioned way. They use good olive oil, prepare and accupuncture and cook the pig by hand with no mechanized systems at all. They cook the pigs on natural bamboo poles over charcoal from small scale manufacturers. Their pigs are carefully selected from folks who generally raise them in their backyards, not from large commercial piggeries. That’s the tedious part because they really have to drive at least an hour to get to their houses and the part where they have to go from one house to another and negotiate with the owners. MarketManila had to attest how tedious that was.

Zubuchon uses only the freshest and often home grown organic lemongrass (that’s tanglad for you!), green onions, siling labuyo or peppers, local sea salt and other herbs and spices. INDULGE. :)
