Cebu’s favorite lechon, Rico’s Lechon is making its way to more locations in Luzon, offering its bestsellers and new dining concepts.
Opening on Nov. 23 is the brand’s biggest branch to date at Blue Bay Walk in Macapagal, Pasay. In an effort to share the Cebu culture with the rest of the country, the branch will offer the province’s version of dampa – sugba, tuwa, kilaw or STK.
Rico’s STK can accommodate a total of 160 people in its indoor 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. Guests can also shop for fresh seafood at the restaurant’s Merkado shop.
The new branch will also have its own lechon roasting area.
Along with the opening of the Macapagal branch on the 23rd, Rico’s Lechon will begin serving in its Manila branches two new offerings, Boodle Feasta and Palayok Hotpot.
Boodle Feasta is a complete meal for two to 12 consisting of rice, vegetables, choices of sauces, Rico’s lechon, and seafood.
It is available in four sets: Set 1 (P750) serves two to four people; Set 2 (P2,500) can feed five to eight; Set 3 (P3,500) is good for nine to 12 pax; and for those who want to try the restaurant’s bestsellers, the Lechon Boodle Feasta (P650) is the flagship meal good for two.
Palayok Hotpot comes in eight varieties: Seafood and Vegetable, Chicken Tinowa, Fish Tinowa (tanigue or seasonal fish available), Fish Tinowa (salmon), Fish Sinigang (tanigue), Fish Sinigang (salmon), Lechon Pork Bone Soup, and Beef Bulalo.
Each variety is available in medium and large sizes, good for four to eight diners. For P580 to P1,100, patrons can dig into a Filipino-style shabu-shabu.
