Rico’s Lechon is making its way to the heart of Luzon as the brand introduces new dining concepts available in their newest store in Blue Bay Walk, Pasay and, soon, in Circuit Makati.

Rico’s is bringing the Cebu’s version of Dampa or sugba, tuwa and kilaw (STK), giving customers more options of delicious, original Cebuano food.

Restaurateur and Rico’s Lechon owner George Pua takes pride in offering the best dining experience to their customers through the brand’s “Da Best Gyud” culture and continuing to provide the juiciest and crispiest lechon.

Branch by the bay
The brand has been a mainstay in Cebu for 20 years, and will now see its biggest branch at Blue Bay Walk, Macapagal, Pasay City which opened on 23 November. In an effort to share the Cebu culture with the rest of the country, this branch will offer new concepts.

Rico’s STK can accommodate a total of 160 people, with dining, al fresco and VIP areas. Also soon to come is the merkado (palengke in Cebuano), the branch’s paluto area complete with an aquarium design.

Highlighting its best seller is the store’s very own lechon roasting area to ensure that only “Da Best” and freshest lechon will be served to its customers.

New ways to savor Cebu flavors
Along with the opening of the Macapagal branch, Rico’s Lechon is bringing its Manila patrons a taste and experience of Cebu. Dubbed as Cebu’s best lechon and even made more popular for its scrumptious Cebuano culinary offerings, customers may enjoy two of Rico’s Lechon’s newest offerings — Boodle Feasta and Palayok Hotpot.

Boodle Feasta features a fusion of rice, vegetables, choices of sauces, Rico’s iconic lechon and seafood.

The feast is served in four sets, perfect for sharing with your family and friends. Set 1 costs P750 (serves two to four pax), Set 2 costs P2500 (serves five to eight pax) and Set 3 costs P3500 (serves nine to 12 pax).

The joy of sharing does not end there. For the price of P650, experience the taste of Cebu’s “Da Best” lechon, specially curated.

Palayok Hotpot has eight varieties to choose from: Seafood and vegetable, chicken tinowa, fish tinowa (tanigue) or seasonal seafood, lechon pork bone soup and beef bulalo hotpots.

Each variety is available in medium and large sizes, good for four to eight pax. Within the price range of P580 to P1100, patrons can dig into a Filipino style “shabu-shabu,” a first in the country, customized to their liking.

The brand’s best-sellers, Rico’s lechon baboy and lechon baka, are also available a la carte.

Also, Rico’s Lechon Circuit Makati is set to make tummies full starting on 4 December.

This new branch is meant to complement the brand’s current roster of restaurants in the Philippines to give more people the Cebu experience.
