So we we are on our day 3 of the food crawl and to me day 3 was the most “full” day that we almost were crawling literally because we were so full even before our day officially ended. 9am to 1am of almost non-stop eating! beat that! Okay, let me break it down for you.
Since it’s going to be a cool and relaxed day and we won’t be going to any hotel so I opted to wear something relaxed but still trendy.

First Stop – Rico’s Lechon New Commissary and Restaurant
Day 3 kicked off with a visit at Cebu’s finest lechon maker, the Rico’s Lechon new commissary. We were a bit early this time as we have to catch up with the commisary’s blessing and official opening. The commissary is located in Talamban, actually just few meters away from their old one.
With this new commissary, Rico’s Lechon can now cater more orders by customers from around the country, Yes! you read it right, around the country because they also accept orders online and deliver them to wherever you are as long as it permits.
Here are photos of the new commissary.

After the short program and the blessing of the commissary and of course joining them in celebration by partaking the prepared breakfast which by the way left us either partially full or totally full because man! the freshly roasted lechon was too inviting and delicious to decline! I personally went beyond my 2 slices limit and indulged!
We then proceeded to Rico’s Lechon Mactan branch for our bloggers lechon luncheon! Yep! We are to eat again! I can’t even imagine how I took it all in! hahaha! We had one lechon prepared for us plus the spicy lechon which by the way an absolute favorite!
The lechon! This is the only lechon where sawsawan is no longer necessary because the meat itself is already very flavorful! But if you want a little kick, you have to try their very own “Sukalami”. I have it in our house and it became a partner of almost everything fried we have.

And this is called the “Prichon” – Piniritong (Fried) Lechon
After tasting lechon from different restaurants and places, I can say that Rico’s Lechon aced them all! Truly they lived up to their tagline #DaBestGyud (Really the best!) ang Rico’s Lechon.
