Lydia's Lechon Ushers Christmas Season with Exciting New Dishes

The signature Lydia's Lechon is known for its crispy skin and juicy meat.

Lydia’s Lechon started out as a small stall in Baclaran during the ‘60s serving its famous original boneless lechon stuffed with seafood paella. Now with 25 stores, Lydia’s Lechon keeps up with the ever-changing food cravings of the Filipinos by expanding its menu to include more local favorites. 

Lydia's Lechon is a staple during fiestas and Filipino celebrations.

From being the star of the table in every Filipino celebration, the true Pinoy staple lechon has become a go-to dish, comfort food even, perfect for everyday meal. Household names like Lydia’s Lechon serves the succulent dish in different recipes. “We want our patrons to enjoy lechon daily in different ways,” said Louie De Guzman, Lydia’s Lechon’s Marketing Head.
