Bong Bongs Filipino feast at home

Bong Bongs delivers Filipino cuisine to homes across the UK with their signature Lechon Kawali pork along with an array of traditional Filipino sides and dessert.

Filipino cuisine has evolved over many centuries from their Austronesian origins to a mixed cuisine of American, Chinese, Indian, Spanish and influences, that had enriched the cultures of the archipelago. Dishes range from simple, fried salted fish, chicken curry, paellas and pork.

Bong Bongs sell produce Lechon pork which is a dish which is enjoyed over several regions of the world, most specifically in Spain. Lechon means roasted baby pig (piglet). Lechon is Cuba’s, Puerto Rico’s, and Spain’s national dish. Additionally, it is popular in the Philippines and other Austronesian region. The dish is made from using a whole roasted suckling pig which is cooked over charcoal and rubbed with an array of herbs and spices.
