Winky’s Lechon by Anastasia Lee is no ordinary lechon that we are accustomed to – which makes it even more special.
This lechon is stuffed with sea food in its belly. Yes you heard it right, it contains crabs and shrimps together with lemon grass while it is being roasted to perfection.
When everything is set on the table and you opened it viola! A magnificent feast awaits you.
This food innovation has circulated in social media since last year and one company based in Visayas has already been featured in a GMA 7’s Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.
With more and more food innovations and ideas popping up, the industry has flourished over the years, especially since the mass media are promoting international cuisines and unique style of cooking. Its no wonder that various traditional delicacies are being upgraded with a twist.
Last week we happen to experience Winky’s Lechon during an event at AIM Phil Conference and the experience was mouthwatering; the aroma of roast lechon and seafoods in one sends you straight to food heaven.
Opening the lechon and seeing all the seafoods come out are a sight to see. Chef Anastacia Lee, owner and Chief Chef of Winky’s Lechon have established numerous patronage on her unique lechon already, but it’s not only sea foods that she stuffed her lechons with, she also stuffs native chickens, depending on the orders of her client.
