It's probably one of the best restaurants in town if you want to indulge the most popular delicacy of the region "the lechon". They prepare it well: the meat is melting in the mouth and the skin is so crispy. So what you get in your plate is really what you were expecting for. The service is also very professional.... More

We ate here last time this year to try our their Famous Cebu Lechon. We liked it since it was quite different from the Lechon we are accustomed to in Manila. Skin is not that crispy though which well was alright but not my preference. Staff were friendly and for people who would want to try it our here... Go... More

Alternative to a more healthy dining wd the MSG free lechon available (aside from being boneless), though would need more seasoning to compensate for a more bland taste comparatively.

Our first day in Cebu we had to try out the famous Cebuano Lechon. We were taken to lunch at Zubuchon and really enjoyed the food. Was good having 4 of us to be able to order a few riches to try. Worth the chance to eat there

Our first lunch in Cebu was on Gaisano Mall where a Zubuchon outlet is located. The resto was recommended by a friend. 1kilo is priced at P1K in their menu and we did not mine the cost because we understand where it is located. When the food was served, the skin is no longer crispy so we asked the waiter... More

Noli G, thank you for your review. But I must say we do not sell lechon for PHP1,000 per kilo, in fact, all of our menus in restaurant are at PHP640 per kilo, some 36% less than you claim in your review above. The only "Gaisano" mall we might be located in is at the Soho Building which is owned... More

Zubuchon's boneless lechon is the BEST. It is delicious and the serving time is fast compared to other restos. I really like the table setting and you should try their calamansi juice.

Who will eat the Pinoy food in good quality and in relaxed location... And pay a good price... Here you're right. Of course... Lechon is the specialty of the house, it was delicious.

Lechon is well-cooked, skin is crispy, and really tastes good. Zubuchon is one of the best in Cebu. My favorite place when in SM City as they offer variety of good dishes at just the right price. Order anything from their menu once and you will surely come back for more. Their kamias shake is superb and desserts are absolutely... More

Christina, thank you so much for your visit and wonderful review. We are always pleased to hear when our clients find a balance between the food, the place and the service provided at a relatively modest price point. And yes, we do think many folks skip the desserts as they seem to be stuffed with the larger portions, but as... More

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.
