Any Filipino occasion calls for a roast pig, but for a small family like ours, getting a whole pig is not ideal. Lechon belly is a sought-after alternative. Now that we are on a community quarantine, delivery is a viable option. Salo Lechon is a restaurant available at SM malls in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. We were able to try their online ordering and delivery and here I would like to share my Salo Lechon Belly review.
Salo Lechon Restaurant
We can do Salobrations now at home through their text ordering and delivery. It is very easy to order. We texted the hotline for Metro Manila, and got a response a few minutes later. We followed and texted the order form including the date and time of delivery. Informed that malls open at 10am, I adjusted my delivery time to 11:30AM.
Their menu and prices are available on their Facebook page.
There are two modes of payment, COD and bank transfer. For my birthday last week, I ordered 6 days before the delivery date and paid via BDO bank transfer. After that, I sent via Viber the photo of the payment I made. They confirmed my payment right away.
I asked them what was the lead time to order and they said at least a day before delivery. However their Facebook page says that same day delivery is available.
By the way, I paid 60 pesos for the flat delivery fee. Free delivery for orders worth 1500 pesos and above.
Before the time of delivery, Salo texted me that the rider was already on the way.
Salo packed the food properly. My first delivery included soups, and nothing was spilled! I appreciated the time and effort they did to pack all items properly. Even the paper bag was clean.
Where do I begin?
Their lechon belly tastes really good! The skin is very crispy on the outside. And the meat inside is very tasty to the last thread of meat. Be careful though ’cause it has peppercorns.
Our family enjoyed the lechon belly so much. It is the reason why we had another Salobration for my birthday this month!
The full roll lechon belly last December was approximately 4 kilos. While the large size we ordered last week was approximately 1 kilo. The 1 kilo lechon can feed up to 5 people.
Tip: Don’t place your lechon belly inside the fridge to maintain its crispiness. We just contained it in a clear plastic microwaveable and left at room temperature. The skin was still crispy the next day. Hindi napanis.
Another favorite of mine at Salo is their Lechon Belly Sisig. Super sarap! Not the usual sisig you eat, this one’s laman talaga.
Overall, we are satisfied with the food and customer service of Salo Lechon Belly Kitchen. I bet we will be ordering again on our next Salobrations.
