Media noche (New Year’s Eve dinner) is way over, but who says you can’t have a lip-smacking slab of cebu lechon right in the middle of the table that will have you going for seconds (and thirds!)? Anthony Bourdain only called cebu lechon after all, as the best roasted pig in the world.
Well, what if we told you that we found what could be the best cebu lechon in the Metro?? Yes we did, and the answer is in a kitchen in Ayala Alabang called Bai’s Boneless Lechon Cebu!
This tiny door leads to Bai’s Boneless Lechon Cebu’s kitchen — you would never have guessed the gastronomic wonder it’s brewing behind it!
Bai’s Boneless Lechon Cebu has been somewhat of a cult favorite since opening their doors only this year! It’s been somewhat of a secret among foodies familiar with the area, and has had a great following in the relatively short time they’ve been operating. Now, we’re sharing this secret with you! Bai’s Boneless Lechon Cebu operates on a delivery basis, which means you have to place an order in advance for some flavorful lechon! Their large servings (they serve in 3 sizes: Family Pack; a slab that’s good for 10-15 pax; and another that’s good for 20-25 pax!), immensely flavorful meat, and a delightfully crispy skin make them perfect for any special occasion, but hey— every day is always a good day for cebu lechon!
Bai’s Boneless Lechon Cebu has Dexter Ding at the helm, a creative director with Cebuano roots. Bai’s lechon was basically born out of the need to create a simple business for Dexter’s dad, who was racking up medical bills for more than 6 months. Hailing from the hometown that boasts of the best lechon in the country, it took 3 months of recipe testing, from both Cebuanos and Manileños alike, that they were able to come up with the raved-for flavor!
What makes Bai’s Boneless Lechon Cebu such a stand-out is that they use high-quality ingredients for each slab of lechon that dish out to hungry customers. Their pork belly comes from a Canadian company, which makes sure that there are top-notch sanitation and storage standards, making sure that every batch is fresh and at its premium quality. Also, Bai’s Boneless Lechon Cebu is cook as you order — meaning every roll of lechon is freshly cooked, just for you!
Their much-sought after lechon cebu comes in 2 flavors: original and spicy. The original is definitely a crowd pleaser, with the flavor of the marinade seeping through the meat, as well as the various herbs and spices used in the filling of the lechon providing that depth of flavor. Of course, the pig skin is crispy to the last bite, and will surely be gone first at a party!
That being said, Dexter recommends their spicy flavor for those who can take a bit of heat: and with good reason! You get the flavor of the original, plus the added kick from the peppers! The chilis are well-embedded in the filling of the lechon, spreading the spices around for balanced heat. It certainly adds that special zing to an already tasty piece of pork.
Bai’s Lechon delivers all the way from Alabang to different parts of Metro Manila: They’ve delivered to places such as SM North Edsa, UP Town Center, SM Molino, and SM San Lazaro. You can also pick up your orders at their kitchen along Ayala Alabang itself, as the trouble traveling down south is definitely worth it! Because their lechon cebu is so in demand, customers all the way from different provinces, as well as Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia have ordered frozen lechon to be brought back there!
So for that special occasion or milestone, or for when you’re simply craving for some authentic, crispy boneless cebu lechon, pick up that phone and ring up Bai’s Boneless Lechon Cebu!
