From being the star of the table in every Filipino celebration, the true Pinoy staple lechon has become a go-to dish, perfect for everyday meal. Household names like Lydia’s Lechon serves the succulent dish in different recipes. “We want our patrons to enjoy lechon daily in different ways,” said Louie De Guzman, Lydia’s Lechon’s Marketing Head.
Lydia’s Lechon started out as a small stall in Baclaran during the ‘60s serving its famous original boneless lechon stuffed with seafood paella. Now with 25 stores, Lydia’s Lechon keeps up with the ever-changing food cravings of the Filipinos by expanding its menu to include more local favorites.
This month, Lydia’s Lechon introduces new menu items* including Kare-Kare con Lechon (roast pork and vegetables simmered in thick peanut sauce); Pritchon Wraps (fried lechon wrapped in pita bread and served with three special sauces); Cheesy Beef Caldereta (beef stew loaded with melted cheese); Laing con Lechon (dried taro leaves and roast pork in coconut milk); Bangus ala Pobre (deep-fried milkfish topped with fried garlic); Minced Lettuce Wraps; Kansing Baka (beef shank in hot broth made with tamarind, lemongrass, and annatto); and Sizzling Tofu.
Also new on Lydia’s Lechon menu is its signature Lechon Belly (charcoal-roast prime cut of pork, with extra crispy skin and perfectly seasoned fork-tender meat), which is available starting at P3,800.00, and can serve up to twelve (12) persons. Patrons can order the signature Lechon Belly and the rest of the menu items online via www.lydias-lechon.com.
Lydia’s Lechon is working on all these new offers and more as an early holiday treat while they gear up for its anniversary celebration this November. “We are excited to bring you more surprises, especially now that we are on our 53rd year of bringing everyday lechon happiness to everyone,” added De Guzman.
*All new menu items will be available in all Lydia’s Lechon stores starting September 28, 2018.
