As my promise to you all, littletigeradventure will keep adventuring to look for a new variety of foods to share with you all.
Today I will share a Filipino restaurant named Lechon Republic Singapore in which specializes in superlicious Lechon.
What is Lechon? Lechon is a pork dish in a Spanish word referring to a roasted baby piglet which is still fed by suckling it’s mother’s milk. But normally in Philippines, they are using adults roasted pigs (not milk suckling pigs). This Lechon is considered as one of the unofficial national dishes in Philippines with Cebu being asserted by American Chef Anthony Bourdain as having the best pigs.
As a delicious Lechon, there are two criterias must be fulfilled: crispy skin and tender fatty pork meat. The Lechon at Lechon Republic Singapore is fulfilling these two criterias. The pork skin is crispy like crackers and having a loud crispiness sounds when I chew it. The pork meat is fat and tenderlicious. Wohoho, this Lechon is super recommended to try.
Other than Lechon, I try Sisig, Pancit Bihon and Sinigang.
Sisig is a Kampapangan dish made from lechon meat that is usually seasoned with Calamansi, Onions and Chilli Peppers. It also refers to a method of preparing fish and pork which is marinated in a sour liquid such as lemon juice or vinegar then seasoned with salt, pepper and other spices.
Sisig is a good match with rice especially warm rice. This Sisig taste is deliciously good.
Pancit Bihon (Pancit is referring to noodles and the dishes made from them usually made with rice noodles) consists of fried beehoon with shrimp, chicken liver, meat and fishball. This Pancit Bihon is not dry (a good sign for me as I don’t like too dry fried beehoon) and tasty. But if you don’t like salty taste, please let them know upon ordering to order less salt.
Sinigang is a Filipino soup or stew characterized by its sour and savoury taste. It is most often associated with tamarind although it can use other sour fruits and leaves. This Sinigang taste is refreshing and also good to eat with rice. They give a lot of fatty pork meat in one portion of Sinigang. It’s yummy.
Overall, I like these Filipino cuisine, especially Lechon. You must try it.
