Lechon

Lechon is a “suckling pig” in Hispanic traditions. It is literally an entire young pig that has been fed on just its mother’s milk (the word for milk in Spanish is leche), which is roasted over charcoal for many hours. Lechon is also considered the national dish of the Philippines. The city of Cebu is considered one of the most famous places in the country for lechon.
