Founded in 2009 by Joel Binamira, but with its 1st restaurant in Cebu, Central Visayas, Philippines, only opening in June 2011, Zubuchon has since grown and expanded across the country. Zubuchon stands out amongst other lechon, or roast pork, restaurants in the rest of lechon land, consistently offering some of the best lechon around.

Ambience at Zubuchon is modern casual. The clean, brightly lit place is neatly packed with functional modern furniture, closely spaced. Abstract art lends a touch of decor to the overall colours of red, white, and wood. Fairly comfortable, though it can get noisy and bustling during peak periods, as the place lends itself well to communal group dining.

Service at Zubuchon is very good. Staff are observant and attentive, quickly greeting and seating guests. They're helpful and display good product knowledge on the menu. I like that staff are efficient in clearing away empty / dirty tables when diners leave, allowing for a quick turn around for waiting guests. In addition, they accord each table personalised attention.

Food at Zubuchon is all about roast pork lechon. Sourced from sustainable farmers, the pigs are stuffed with over a dozen natural or organic ingredients, herbs, and spices, marinated in sea salt, then basted with fresh coconut water. Slow roasted over wood fired charcoal, the result is incredibly tender, juicy pork meat, succulent fat, and a super crispy skin with a loud crunch. Portions are designed mostly for communal dining, and are medium to large. Prices are affordable, budget about PHP ₱400 / SGD $11.30 per person for a meal here.

The Slow-Cooked Adobo Chicken And Pork (PHP ₱250 / SGD $7) here differs from other versions elsewhere, because they've omitted the use of light soy sauce and dark soy sauce. Instead, the pork and chicken is marinated solely with the other ingredients of bay leaves, salt, garlic, vinegar, pepper, and coconut juice. The meat is still juicy and tender, with an intense salty savoury flavour. Pair this with the condiments which help cut through the oily texture.

Loved the Sizzling Sisig (PHP ₱200 / SGD $5.60), with its chopped / minced pork meat, tossed with onions, garlic, and chili, on a hot sizzling plate. Textures of chewy crunchy, with flavours of savoury salty spicy. Very good.

The Zubuchon Fast Meal (PHP ₱180 / SGD $5) features white rice, sharp zesty sour crunchy Atchara, and Lechon De Leche. Love the juicy, tender pork meat, I got the version with less fat. The skin is super crisp, crunching loudly when bit. Highly recommended!

The Banana Turon (PHP ₱120 / SGD $3.40) is delicious. Sliced sweet bananas, in a light, crisp, spring roll wrapper, it crunches satisfiyingly. Dip into the rich, thick caramel sauce for greater flavour. Highly recommended!
