GENERAL’S LECHON is the winner of the Battle of Lechons in the recent UTT XI. 🙂 It is a Negros Lechon, which does not need sauce like the Cebu Lechon, and also differs in its use of a unique mix of spices.

It is considered to be one of the best lechons in Manila!  I like the Original Garlic version. 🙂 Order this to satisfy your lechon cravings this Holiday Season. 🙂

Congratulations for winning the #4 spot in Ultimate Taste Test!

Who are we?   

  • The General’s Lechon is a registered company of Ongsters House of Good food Inc.
  • Generals Lechon was registered in 2007, and is located in Paranaque, Metro Manila.
  • We only do advance bookings.  This enables us to make sure our quality remains perfect.
  • Unique selling proposition: Derived from the Negros type of Lechon, tweaked to the discerning foodie taste buds.  We are triumphant in making different flavors to the otherwise traditional pork lechon. ( Original, Garlic, Chili Garlic, and Curry).

Is it really better than the traditional Cebu Lechon?

We are the Negros variant of the famous Pork Lechon.  The main difference from a Cebu Lechon is our spices.  The General’s Lechon is more balance in taste, just enough salt, garlic, onions, lemon grass, and other unique spices.  Through the years, we have been rated the Best Lechon by different food critics.
