Cebu’s Famous Rico’s Lechon Opens at the Global City

The famous Rico’s Lechon of Cebu is now in town! We don’t need to go as far as Cebu just to experience Rico’s Lechon. You may now dine in or place your advance orders of Lechon at their first branch in Fort Entertainment Complex in Bonifacio Global City.

I was one of the lucky guys who was invited to their soft opening Ricos Lechon first store and lucky too to meet the owner as well!  We had a chance to peek and glimpse inside their highly restricted Rico’s roasting area. I find them kinda strict in terms of sanitation because you need to wear hairnets before you can enter their roasting area.

Being the first Filipino brand in the roster of international restaurant brands operated by Meat Concepts Corp., Rico’s Lechon’s Manila debut, as well as the arrival of its famed cooks and roasting team from Cebu, is met with much anticipation and lip-smacking fanfare in its grand opening last August 3, 2018 at the sprawling, 180-seat capacity restaurant.

As side from their famous Lechon, their menu also includes other Filipino favourites, such as fried rice trio which contains three kinds of dried fishes, danggit, tuyo, and tinapa, seafood kare-kare, crispy feetchon, sizzling lechon sisig, pusit na pinaputok, monggos, cucumansi which is a refreshing juice mix of cucumber and calamansi, and the best-seller sauce, sukalami.

One of the highlights in Rico’s Lechon Manila flagship branch is the Roasting Pit, which is expected to be a major attraction. It’s the first of its kind in BGC and the only site to have this viewing corner. Different from Cebu’s – which is done in soil – the lechon roasting is done indoors. The Roasting Pit is built with innovative mechanism for its
exhaust and adjusting temperatures, upholding quality and food safety standards. Customers – and even passersby – can view the lechon roasting at all times and even from the outside.


Look forward for the opening of other Manila stores located in Tiendesitas in Pasig, Top of the Glo in Glorietta Makati, and Ayala Malls Cloverleaf and U.P. Town Center in Quezon City.

I’m very glad that I don’t need to go to Cebu just to satisfy my Lechon cravings. hehe
