This is where I always bring friend who visit Cebu for the first time. Their lechon is something you want to go back to and their monggos is superb :) They just need to put up more tables since sometimes the place gets rowdy with tourists and locals.

I tried Zubuchon as it is so popular among non-Cebuanos. After eating, I don't know why it tagged itself as the best lechon when it's not even in my top 10 among lechon makers in Cebu... hmmm probably it's the Traveller of CNN Anthony Bourdaine that made them popular. Their lechon it chopped in very small pieces. Try CNT, Cebu's... More

One of the best branches of Zubuchon in Cebu in terms of service. They have lots of servers who are very attentive. Lechon also always available even near closing hours not like other branches. My only minor problem is that the extension area has poor aircon and is quite warm and uncomfortable though they provided electric fans. Hope they fix... More

It's very accessible just walking distance from Crown Regency since it's located at Mango Ave. Their lechon is not that salty so very perfect when dipped in vinegar. I love their dishes, aside from their lechon, their Adobong Kangkong with Chicharron is also good and same with Sinigang na Lechon ( broth is made from real sampaloc not buy-product seasoning...

We came here together with my family for dinner. The place was nice and it was worth the price. The food was a bit strange because it doesn't taste the same as what the menu has stated about the name and the people there accommodated us quite well. Overall, the service was okay and the food needs more touch. It's... More

I was so excited that Zubuchon opened a new branch in makati hence made an early reservation last weekend if it was good as Zubuchon cebu. & yes it was authentic as the original branch. You need to try their classic lechon and the mongo.

Can't fault this.. It was probably the best meal I've had in a while and the price was very fair. Also went to Carcar where the locals go, but that's an hour out of the city and one would need a strong stomach, but also worth the experience. The medium which is good for 2-4.. Is probably really good for... More

We had our dibs of the famous Cebu Lechon at the Walk. I ordered the Original Zubuchon and my officemate had the boneless Zubuchon. I find the skin of the Boneless Zubuzchon more appetizing because it's reddish and not pale as compared to the other one though both are very tasty up to the last bite. The perfect condiment is...

Description
We serve roast pork as the main dish, with nearly three dozen other Filipino dishes that are either include roast pork or are pork-free complementary dishes. We offer an extensive seafood menu in three of our restaurants as well as many vegetable dishes and natural local fruit shakes. This is the roast pork that Chef and TV Host Anthony Bourdain declared as "The Best Pig, Ever!" On his No Reservations episode on the Philippines. For a taste of Filipino cuisine, in clean, bright comfortable surroundings, visit us at any of our branches in Cebu.
