Tatang's Extra Crispy Boneless Lechon - The Spiciest Lechon Belly in Cebu

Tatang's Extra Crispy Boneless Lechon, Wilson Street, Lahug, Cebu City
My wife and I usually eat out on weekends.  Since it has been a while that we last ate lechon, we decided to look for a yummy lechon place.  There used to be an eatery that serves very delicious boneless lechon near our house, but the eatery moved.  I used Google to search where Tatang's Extra Crispy Boneless Lechon relocated and found out that they have a branch in Wilson Street, Lahug. We went there and had an extra crispy and extra spicy dinner.
Tatang's Extra Crispy Boneless Lechon is located at Wilson Street, Lahug, Cebu City.  Coming from Salinas Drive, the lechon place is just around 400 meters from JY Square. It is just a few meters right after Pino on the opposite side.

The eatery is not too big.  It has a sitting a capacity of around 20 people. We were lucky that we were a bit early as it became packed 15 minutes right after we arrived.

Tatang's Extra Crispy Boneless Lechon serves boneless lechon in 2 varieties: Regular and Spicy.   Lechon is sold by the kilo with the spicy being sold at 590 a kilo while the regular is priced at 580 pesos a kilo. You may buy 1/4 kilo or 12 kilo. They also have a lechon value meal at 95 pesos.  Tatang's also has other interesting dishes like lechon flakes, lechon wraps, and sizzling lechon sisig.  My wife and I ordered a half kilo of lechon, 2 cups of rice, and 2 bottles of soft drinks.

The lechon was really spicy. It was the spiciest that I ever tasted among the Cebuano restaurants that serve this roasted pork specialty. I was really sweating when I was eating at Tatang's.  Despite its spice level, I can say that Tatang's serves one of the best lechon belly in town. The meat was flavorful and the lechon skin was truly extra crispy. I was not surprised that we finished everything although, I have to buy another bottle of sprite just to sooth my tongue. ;)

Unlike some food stalls that serves "spicy" dishes yet serving viands that fail to deliver the hype, Tatang's makes no comprises when it comes to making their Boneless Lechon spicy. You can really see with your order the generous amount of spices and chilis that that they use to flavor their extra crispy boneless lechon. I really recommend this place for people who love hot dishes.  For people who have a low tolerance for spicy food, I strongly recommended that you get the regular boneless lechon. 

We really had a great time there and I am so happy that I was able to eat at Tatang's Extra Crispy Boneless Lechon after a year. I will definitely go back to try lechon sisig, lechon wrap, and lechon flakes. ;)
