I have tried several lechon restaurants in Cebu and this is one of the worst. Tried it also at Castle Peak buffet and it was still the same quite tasteless and dry, there are many better ones around with the same or cheaper price.

Cebu is known for its unique-tasting lechon. Locals say that the best ones are found in the more rural, outskirt areas. For commercial lechon varieties, Rico's is one of the most recommended. Their lechon is the typical Pinoy lechon, but the meat is cooked well...More

Their lechon was so good, though we haven't tried their spicy one which is the reason why we go there :( Nonetheless, food experience was the best. They have the cutest kaldero ever.

Two things I love about Rico's lechon are the golden brown crunchy skin and the tender, flavorful meat. Definitely one of the best and a must-try gastronomic treat when in Cebu.

if you visit Cebu, please dont forget to try our famous Tasty Lechon. All tourists dont miss this and you have to dine in one of the fabulous restaurant that serves good lechon. They have the crispiest lechon and usually served hot and fresh.

Sorry I cant give a definite answer but if I may suggest, that it is best if you could direct your query to Rico's itself.
