  • My last night in Manila Philippines and I really wanted to try out one of the local popular night market for some night time eats. One of my local friends suggested Central Mercado a wonderfully vibrant night market in the heart of Manila.
    The night market first of all, smelled incredible. From the roasted meat skewers to the refreshing local drinks, there was something for everyone at this night market.
    Having filled up on great eats at this night market, I proceeded to a local restaurant that many locals recommended for a taste of Dinuguan which is essentially pork blood stew with organ meat inside.

      +Uri zubuchon seems so commercialized tbh🙄 if you're a real cebuano you know where the good lechons are. 😁

    Cebu lechon is the only lechon variety in the world where it doesn't need the help of flavor enhancers such as sauce. Cebu lechon stands on its own. It's an insult to a dish if it still needs something to find its flavor.

  • lionhearted1969

    How would you know the answer whether Pampanga lechon is better than Cebu lechon if you haven't tried Cebu lechon yet? You can try Cebu lechon at many restaurants in Manila or branches of Cebu-based lechon specialty restaurants like Zubuchon and Rico's Lechon.

    Just a warning to any American Tourists. The ghetto food in Philippines is not for you. Most Philipinoes have a stronger immunity system from their DNA or by just living there. The small city ghetto street food areas do not follow sanitation laws at all (you will get food poisoning). Cebu is better than Manila by a long shot (However, both cities have strong enforcement on safe food, due to their reliance on tourists in these two cities). I ate at Cebu and the street food there is literally 10x better quality, price and tastier than what you could get in the average American high price restaurant.

    If you’re planning a trip to the Philippines and is planning to also try the street food there, If you’re a foreigner and used to eating clean food and drinking pure water I would just warn you that you could get an upset stomach or digestion issues the first time since you’re most likely not used to the food in the streets that’s not as clean as what you normally eat at home, the locals have a stronger immune system and are completely fine to the food since they grew up eating it everyday and Im also filipino but every time I go for a vacation every few years I do still get an upset stomach at first but then just build up slowly Im not saying that the food is dirty but compared to some countries it’s not as clean but I still love filipino street food💕
