What we ordered:
¼ Lechon and Adobong Baka
Taste = 5/5
– Lechon is suckling pig and Adobong Baka is beef in vinegar and soy sauce. For me, Elar’s (not to be confused with Elarz) makes the best roasted lechon. I’ve tasted lechon that cost five times more but the taste and quality wasn’t even close to Elar’s. The perfectly orange skin was super crispy and the thin fat layer underneath it gave a very good contrast in texture. The pork meat was almost melt-in-your-mouth and really asserted its premium quality. The Lechon sauce was sweet, a little peppery and livery – just excellent. When I put crispy skin, pork meat, sauce and rice on one mouthful, I went to heaven and cried a little. Lyn doesn’t really eat much pork so she ordered the Adobong Baka. It was on the tough side but the sauce was on the salty side and was good.
Service = 4.5/5
– It was a self-service set-up but there were lots of attendants who helped us with our trays, drinks and utensils.
Ambience = 3.5/5
– The place looked more like a cafeteria than a restaurant. It was quite apparent that they had low-cost utensils but it just made us focus more on deliciousness of their Lechon.
Value for money = 5/5
– Even if we were talking about just the Lechon, the prices they charged were very reasonable. The dishes were just priced right but what will make me come back here again and again is definitely their Lechon.
