ZUBUCHON – the best pig ever…!

On our fourth and last day in Cebu, we did a quick gala nearby our hotel before proceeding to the airport. And of course, Cebu trip wouldn’t be complete if you won’t try their Lechon Cebu, right? So we didn’t have any doubtΒ to try it before going home. It’s a must in your to-do list if you’ll visit Cebu.

Luckily, one of the ZUBUCHONΒ restaurant branches is not that far from our starting point. We went to their Escario Central, N Escario St. branch to have our almost late lunch.


ZUBUΒ is the name of the island of Cebu in old Spanish and Portuguese maps. While CHONΒ is stands for “lechon”.Β Joel Binamira, who also writes a popular blog – Market Manila. Headed this ZUBUCHON brand and restaurants, which was established back in 2009.


Hungry now? Lol. Seeing these photos, as I write, makes me so hungry! Oh, if only they have branches here in Davao, I wouldn’t hesitate to eat lechon againΒ from Zubuchon.Β Indeed, the best pig ever!

We paired it with their delicious (my fave as well) Shrimp Sinigang. We were so fullΒ and indeed, satisfied with our meal.

While waiting for your order, you can also look around and buy some pasalubongs for your friends and family.


Apologies, but I really need to cover my face here. So haggard, you knerrr! πŸ˜…

And if you noticed, I haven’t posted our Day 2 travel diary yet. Yes, because unfortunately… okay, let me gasp some courage to accept and share with you this misfortune happened to my memory card. Phew! πŸ˜–

Well, having that said, I guess you already have an idea? Errrrm, yuh, I lost ALL photos of our Days 1 & 2! πŸ˜­πŸ’” If you’ve read my previous post about our first day in Cebu, those photos were taken by Lois using his iPhone. All photos I took using the DSLR camera were corrupted and I am finding ways now to retrieve them. Hopefully, I could! πŸ˜­πŸ’”

But if no choice, I’ll use photos from Lois’ phone then! Lol. Had our back up plan before traveling? Absolutely, yes! 😜

So, anyways, positive vibes still. Hehe.

You may visit their website to know more about their story, menu, operating hours (per branch) and etc.

Till my next post! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜

    If you tried Rico’s Lechon, you’ll forget about Zubuchon. LOL! Most of my workmates from Manila who came here in Cebu were always looking for Zubuchon and I let them try it there. After that, I let them try Rico’s Lechon. Rico’s is way tastier than Zubuchon, I have to say πŸ™‚

    Kaming mga taga Cebu would know. Hehe! But of course, it still depends on your taste πŸ™‚
