Thanks Tony, again…

“My first truly transcendent great whole roasted pig, the best lechon I ever had in my life was that time in Cebu.”

Anthony Bourdain, June 2017

Quote from an interview conducted by Claude Tayag and ABS-CBN in Manila, on the sidelines of the World Street Food Congress



  1. Thel from Florida says:

    I am often dreaming of eating Zubuchon lechon. I hope soon ): Have a great day MM!

    By the way my husband and I are going on Alaska Cruise next week. Have you heard of Crystal Serenity? Rica de Jesus (apo ng may ari ng Rustan) went on Alaska Cruise last year and said this ship is really classy so I booked it.

    It may sound like a cliché but here it is again, we really never get over our first love.

    I saw that interview on the Philippine Star last Sunday.


    The correct quote was:

    TAYAG: Do you still consider the roast pig you had in Cebu the best you’ve ever had?

    BOURDAIN: That’s the best I ever had. It was really, really great! I had an incredible recipe in Bali. What I had was very terrific. The stuff I had in Puerto Rico, this guy was a fanatic and makes it with the same kind of, like, in-culture, anywhere recipe. So I think in any serious peak culture, there’s got to be one possibility, in any given day, anyone can make the best thing in the world. I first tasted a fully transcendent, great big holistic pig, the first I ever had, in Cebu. It’s great when people argue about food.
