Gogoes Lechonok: Lechon Manok stuffed Lechon Cebu

The holidays have come and gone, but while we’re all resolving to eat healthier, my hard drive still has loads of photos showcasing the holiday season’s debauchery. And nothing spells debauchery better than Lechonok, a whole Cebu lechon, stuffed with lechon manok.

Gogoes Cebu Lechonok

You better believe it.

What started out as a wild little idea, “I wonder what it would be like to stuff a whole chicken inside lechon?” turned into a full-fledged, intensely flavorful, sinful gastronomic delight that can make your heart stop with just the sheer thought of it.

Has your heart stopped yet?

Gogoes Lechonok takes a whole lechon and stuffs it to the brim with whole chickens. Fill in the gaps with classic Cebu lechon herbs and spices, then roast to perfection. The lechon is superb. The pork flesh is really tender and juicy, and loaded with flavor. As is usual with good lechon Cebu, you can enjoy it without any additional sauces. The skin isn’t as crisp as I’d like; but Rayne, the work colleague who treated us to it, thinks it was just wrapped too soon, while it was still warm. Normally, it’s really crisp, he says. Nevertheless, it’s still really good lechon. I think it’s testament to its quality, the fact that we still enjoyed it thoroughly despite not having enough crisp skin to go around.

The surprise though, is the lechon manok. Because of its placement inside the pig cavity, it absorbed all the drippings and herby flavors from the stuffing, intensifying its flavor. It’s missing the characteristic, brown skin of lechon manok but it’s not a deal breaker. In its place, you’re rewarded with rich, savory flavors, creating a lechon manok quite unlike ones I’ve tasted before. And like the lechon it comes in, you can enjoy it without any extra sauces. It’s that flavorful. Splitting the whole lechon usually releases added drippings and juices too. Best to catch them for pouring atop your rice for the complete experience. Yum!

Gogoes Cebu Lechon and Lechonok is sold in Lilo-an Cebu. I’m not sure if they regularly ship lechon to other parts of the country, but we were able to get some sent to Manila, so I’m sure if you’re nice, it can be arranged. And you better be nice before you eat it, because this sinful treat will hit your goodness quota bad.

Rayne, thanks for the Lechonok! It was definitely an experience. 😀

    And here I thought they forced the pig to eat chickens. Hehe. But those photos are really really really sinful.

  2. Madz says:

    If you watch How I met your Mother, it’s like Ted’s concept of stuffing a small turkey inside a bigger turkey, haha.

    BUT I never thought someone would really do or is doing a similar concept in real life. *drools*

    I had something like this in Enting’s in Bacolod last year. The skin wasn’t as crunchy as I want it to be but good enough, the chicken was superb! Nice to know that they have it in Cebu as well.

    Late reply is late! But it looks like we’re all in agreement. It must be tried, health be damned!

    you were right….my heart just stopped. hahaha..i always look forward to the special dates where it’s OK to indulge in lechon. now if those special dates had lechon and lechon manok, i can’t even wrap my finger around the idea. amazing! haha

  10. kaoko says:

    As long as it’s not on a regular basis, I’m sure we can all indulge in evil lechon once in a while. Like you, I couldn’t believe it either, until it was being sliced up right in front of me. I doubt I’ll be able to have it again (we rarely order lechon) but at least, I can say I’ve tried it and lived. 😀
