One of the favorite filipino food is the lechon. It’s no wonder that my family flocked on to get a serving of Mario’s specialty, the Cochinillo. The cochinillo is a roast suckling piglet flavored with herbs and spices. Served alongside the Cochinillo is Mario’s signature Spanish Paella.
Their paella is very flavorful with the juices from the seafood ingredients. The Cochinillo is one of the most typical dishes in the cuisine of Castilla, especially the city of Segovia. They call it Cochinillo Asado though. Roasted properly, cochinillo should be soft and tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. One can add the lechon sauce on the slices but I prefer to eat the meat without the sauce.
The Cochinillo is such an ideal centerpiece for the Christmas lunch or dinner. It costs 1.250 pesos a kilo.
