Sheraton Manila Bay’s Lechonito Special
Filipino celebrations is never complete without a Lechon. But since most of our celebrations are now confined at home with the presence of only a few family and friends, Lechonito or Cochinillo is definitely a more practical alternative for intimate parties.
Sheraton Manila Bay offers their own version of Lechonito Special made of Pinoy’s favorite suckling pig slow-roasted to crispy golden perfection with meat so tender that even a plate can cut through it. For only Php 7,888 net, each Lechonito set includes vegetable kare-kare, bringhe rice, ube Leche flan, and healthy fruit beverage good for sharing up to 4 persons.
What is Cochinillo?
A suckling pig is a piglet fed on its mother’s milk (i.e., a piglet which is still a “suckling”). In culinary contexts, a suckling pig is slaughtered between the ages of two and six weeks. It is traditionally cooked whole, often roasted, in various cuisines. It is usually prepared for special occasions and gatherings.
The meat from suckling pig is pale and tender and the cooked skin is crisp and can be used for pork rinds. The texture of the meat can be somewhat gelatinous due to the amount of collagen in a young pig.
In the former Spanish colony of the Philippines, lechón (Filipino: litsón) is considered a national dish. As the usage of the term has evolved over the years, “lechón” has now come to refer to a roasted pig in general (including suckling pigs). Suckling pigs in the country are referred to as lechón de Leche, which corresponds to the term Cochinillo in Spain.
