Brand’s Native Lechon [Roast Whole Pig] | Davao Food

Davao is not known for lechon. A lot of travelers visit Davao without even thinking of lechon. But Davaoeños know that we have really good lechon here in Davao. And each Davao foodie has his own top pick. After all, we do have a lot of lechoneros (lechon vendors) each with a different take on the Philippines’ most famed celebratory dish. No doubt about it, whatever your lechon preference is, there is a Davao lechonero that will satisfy your craving.

Good news for all! A new lechonero has arrived. Brand’s Native Lechon is now in Davao City to delight our taste buds with their native lechon already popular in Digos.

For those who do not know, “lechon” is a popular Filipino dish usually served as centerpiece during special occasions.

A whole pig is slaughtered, prepared, filled with herbs and spices, and slow roasted in an open fire pit. The result is juicy and tasty pork with exceptionally savory ribs and belly. All enclosed in crunchy pork skin. The crunch of the skin providing a good textural contrast to the juicy meat.

That is the ideal lechon for me. Unfortunately, not all lechoneros (lechon makers) achieve all these. To be clear, these are just my own criteria for excellent lechon. If you have your own criteria for good lechon, share it in the comments section below.

Back to my ideal lechon… Luckily, Brand’s Native Lechon serves lechon that passes my criteria for an excellent lechon.

Origin of Brand’s Native Lechon

Brand’s Native Lechon was established in Digos, Davao del Sur just last year. It began as a small, home-based business by Brand de los Cientos. Yep, that is his name and he named his business after himself. Brand is a foodie who started a home-based catering business specializing in Filipino cuisine while he was an Overseas Filipino Worker.

Brand decided to come home and work on a recipe for the Philippines’ most wanted celebration dish, lechon. He formulated the lechon recipe and experimented with lechon-making to achieve the best lechon that would satisfy the palates of Filipinos.

Brand’s Native Lechon uses fresh herbs and secret ingredients to achieve the perfect balance of salty, sour, and umami that will make each bite of Brand’s Native Lechon satisfying and memorable. With his blend of spices and his own take in lechon-making, Brand’s Native Lechon is able to produce temptingly delicious lechon with the ribs and belly so tasty that you will not hesitate eating more even you are already full.

Why You Should Try Brand’s

I have eaten a lot of lechon in my life. Lechon is affordable here in Davao, after all. But Brand’s stands out for a number of reasons.

Each bite is juicy and bursting with flavor. Needless to day, it is perfect with a dipping sauce of coconut vinegar and garlic. Plus of course, rice. I assume it would also taste really good with spicy vinegar, with the acidity and spice balancing out the lechon’s savory goodness. An order of whole lechon comes with a bottle of their own blend of spicy vinegar.

Davao Food Lechon de Leche

Lechon de Leche by Beko's Biik

Lechon de Leche (Roast Pig Suckling) is no doubt the best kind of lechon. Lechon de Leche is always tender, succulent, and juicy. Since the roast pig is young, the meat is lean and tender, and all the juices and taste from the herbs and aromatics easily seep through the lean meat and through the small pig.

Beko’s Biik serves regular and spicy lechon de leche anytime of the the day, 24/7. And they can even send one to other places in the PHilippines through airport to airport transfer. So you can enjoy a delectable lechon de leche from the gastronomic center that is Davao, wherever you are.
