General’s Lechon 5-Ways now in BGC!

Our favorite General’s Lechon finally opened their first retail store at the Uptown Food Hall, offering lechon in 5 different ways! Ever since 2011, when we first tried it and it got featured in the Ultimate Taste Test, the quality has been consistent over the years. They have been hesitant to open a store for years, and it is only until recently that they finally opened a food hall outlet.   General’s Lechon Uptown Food Hall, 4/F Uptown Mall, Uptown Bonifacio, Taguig Open daily 10.00am to 10.00pm Related Blog Posts: • General’s Lechon 5-Ways now in BGC!

General’s Lechon is known for its herby garlicky taste and crispy Lechon skin. The Lechon is cooked and chopped fresh daily with Filipino Generals as witnesses.


General Lechon 5-Ways

Lechon with Rice
First Way: General’s Lechon with Rice (₱180)
I like it the classic way—just lechon with crispy skin paired with hot white rice and a glass of  San Miguel draft beer.
Lechon Sisig
2nd Way: Lechon Sisig with Rice (₱165)
I would usually order the sisig to mix with the rice and slice the siling labuyo into pieces for that extra spice.
Pritchon
3rd Way: Pritchon with Rice (₱180) topped with Egg
Sometimes I like the tutong crunch on my lechon served with egg which is perfect for all-day breakfast feels.
Garlic Longganisa
4th Way: Garlic Longganisa with Rice (₱120)
This is one of the best garlic longganisas we’ve tried! (Never mind the garlic breath.)
Lechon Paksiw
5th Way: Lechon Paksiw with Rice (₱165)
Filipino’s love leftover lechon in Mang Tomas kind of sauce. Yum yum!


Final Thoughts Congratulations Bryan and General’s Lechon team for finally opening a retail store right in BGC!
