Yes, Tasty Canned Cebu Lechon Exists!
Lechon is a party favorite, often served during celebrations. The juicy and flavorful meat and the crunchy skin, especially when paired with rice, is addictive. But what happens if you're suddenly craving lechon? What if you only need a single serving of lechon?
Elarz Lechon has been roasting juicy pigs since 2005. They let you customize the flavor of the lechon from Original (classic Elarz Lechon), Lagablab (with sili labuyo), Zupremo (Elzar's special blend of herbs and spices), and Zebu (Elarz's take on Cebu's flavorful roasted suckling pig). You can also add stuffing: from paella, binagoongan, Moroccan, to sisig stuffing.
If you find yourself hungry for lechon 24/7, you should try Elarz Lechon's Lechon De Lata, a canned version of Elarz's lechon, for a quick and satisfying ulam or pulutan. Elarz Lechon has five different variants to choose from (similar to their lechon): Original, Lagablab, Zebu, Zupremo, and Paksiw na Lechon. For the price of P170 for a can of Elarz's Lechon De Lata, you can already feed 2-4 people already.
According to Elarz Lechon, the best way to cook Lechon De Lata is to make it extra crispy! You can achieve this by cooking it until the sauce completely dries up. This is best paired with fluffy white rice, but you can also use it for pasta!
Elarz Lechon's Lechon De Lata (P170/can and P4080/box) is available online, and at their store at 20 Speaker Perez Street, Brgy. Lourdes, Quezon City. They are currently working on making the Lechon De Lata available in select convenience stores and groceries.
