Zubuchon originated in Cebu, also known as the home of the best lechon. Its name was derived from the earliest 16th-century maps of the archipelago that refer to the island of Cebu as “Zubu” or “Zzubu” and the word lechon, which means roasted suckling pig.
What makes Zubuchon lechon unique from others is their natural way of preparing lechon. They cook their flavorful lechon with natural ingredients such as fresh coconut water and natural sea salt to achieve that “local taste” and deep mahogany brown lechon skin.
