Lechon


Did you say, "Oooooooh!!" with big open eyes? Or did you wrinkle up your nose and say, "Ewwww!!"?

Me and my sisters are in the first group. This piece of lechon was around $7.50 from the Kam Swap Meet.

Chopped up and mixed with some tomatoes, onions and patis (fish sauce) it makes one of our favorite dishes. This bag of 4 tomatoes (one is hidden) was $2.

Hmmm.... I still haven't been to the Kam Swap Meet. Darn! Looks like you get really good buys. Haven't tried any lechon yet.

I said YUMMMMMMM!!! I could just eat the Lechon alone, I'd chomp on it like it was a big old turkey leg. LOL. Now I want some Lechon.

Ooooooooh! My favorite dish is from Thelma's in Waipahu - called Thelma's Special. Just like you said - chopped up lechon, with chopped up tomatoes and onions. Only thing they don't use patis, just shoyu.

So wickedly ono because it is "bad" food, but so delicious that it is worth it.

I've never heard of that term Lechon before. Is that another language? But that looks to me like a pork belly strip with the fat left on to crisp! Yummers! But I would never pay that price. You are brave Jalna! You must be my rich Auntie! ; )

Gotta go real early for good deals, Kay. Plus it can get HOT.

LOL Alibaba!!

Oooh Lorna . . . I just googled "tinono" and saw Yelp reviews for Harley's on Kauai. The most recent reviewer mentions how they closed up and how his family was so happy when he discovered that they had reopened.

You're so right Aunty, so worth it!

YES, Mich!

I want some right now, Myko!

Maybe we should have some next time you're here, Kat.

It's filipino, Mark.

Susan said...

Mmmmm. What's the name of the dish?

Susan said...

Oops, tinono right? Never heard of it but I like it.

jalna said...

LOL, Les!

Mine too, Erick.

Susan, I actually had to google "tinono". Me and my sisters call it Lechon Kawali.

Susan said...

I though when you chop it up and add onions and tomatoes it's called sisig, but what do I know haha. Lechon kawali is the first picture...when it's fried like that. : ) yummy either way because I eat fried pork with onions and tomatoes

jalna said...
