An early Christmas present awaits to all lechon lovers out there. Cebu’s best lechon place, Rico’s Lechon will conquer central Cebu as they open their newest restaurant on Thursday, December 8, in N. Escario St.
Enrico “Rico” Dionson founder of Rico’s lechon inspiring story where he started working as a “Kristo” (the one who communicates with the bets during cockfighting which is popular here in the Philippines), where after cockfighting is getting lesser , he needs to find a new way to make a living and that where he started in making Lechon. Using his wealthy contacts in his Kristo days he was able to find customers that like his Lechon and started making orders until he was recognized by then President Joseph “Erap” Estrada and that started the popularity of his Lechon.
“Ricos Lechon is the only Lechon maker in the Philippines that got invited personally by a President of the Philippines to make Lechon for him”
Rico’s Lechon opens the door of its third and largest branch ahead of the holiday season. The newest home of the best lechon can now be accessible to Axis Entertainment Avenue, Vibo Place at N. Escario St. just a few minutes away from the Cebu Provincial Capitol.
The brand new hub for all occasion is a two-storey facility that features 100-seating capacity dining area and another 100-seating capacity function room. The expansion does not only cover the venue but the menu as well. Apart from its main attraction, which is their signature lechon, the restaurant also offers a wide array of Filipino dishes.
Enrico “Rico” Dionson, founder and chief executive officer of the chain restaurants, recognized the increasing demand of their lechon and events booking in Mactan and Mabolo branches. Bringing Rico’s Lechon closer to the heart of Cebu City would not only accommodate more customers but also reach out to those who may find it hard to access the first two branches.
Opening this new bigger branch of Rico’s Lechon is one way to say thank you to those who continuously patronize our product. We want to give all Cebuanos and tourists more accessible place to try our best lechon and show them that we have more special dishes to offer as well. Now, friends, colleagues, and families can all come and enjoy.
