Another personal favorite appetizer is 'SAGUYON' it's like french fries made of rare tiny freshwater fish netted and dried called miniscule *world's smallest vertebrae that can be found in Lake Mainit* sun dried and crispy fried served with home made bagoong. I'm not fond of seafoods but this one really caught by surprise of its distinct taste that will definitely kick start your appetite. It will definitely leave a lasting impression on your taste bud.
For the main meal. It would only make sense to try what you came here for - lechon and they give you good options for that. They have lots of choices in lechon to choose from and all are highly recommendable especially the boneless belly but still my personal favorite will have to be spicy lechon that adds a burning taste to your taste buds. The best pair for this kind of meal is the KAMIAS SHAKE. Kamias *sorrel / cucumber tree* is local fruit with a sour taste. The sourness flavor of the shake compliments well with the lechon and somehow heightens the flavor of the delicacy that adds a tangy taste on it just as what the red wine does to a meat.
Foremost, Zubuchon’s pigs are not from commercial piggeries but are hand-picked from pigs raised in the backyards of certain individuals. They do not use MSG or commercial mixes for flavor. Instead, they use organic ingredients, including olive oil, local sea salt, homegrown lemongrass, peppers, green onions, and other herbs and spices. Zubuchon follows the old-fashioned way of roasting pig. The pig is accupunctured and cooked manually. The pigs are staked on bamboo poles and roasted over charcoal. Compared to oven-cooked pigs or those roasted using mechanical systems, one would notice that meat roasted over charcoal usually tastes better and richer in flavor
