LECHON KAWALI
What it is: Fried pork belly
What’s the deal: Another legacy from the Spanish colonial days, holidays are celebrated by roasting a whole suckling pig (lechon) over coals. That’s pretty complicated for a restaurant. But most will carry lechon kawali, a condensed version that makes bacon look healthy by comparison. It’s basically pork belly, skin, and a little meat fried until crisp. Anthony Bourdain declared the stuff in Cebu “the best pig ever”.
