Mang Kiko's Lechon, Lau Pa Sat

Mang Kiko's Lechon, lechon rice

This stall (18 Raffles Quay, Stall #27 Lau Pa Sat Festival Market) was brought to my attention by a Filipino colleague at work who eaten there and recommended me to try. Mang Kiko's Lechon basically serves roasted pork (lechon) and chicken on a rotisserie.

The food stood out. Roast pork belly was quite similar Chinese roast pork but had a much more smokey aroma from the roast. These guys were quite generous with the portions as well. Which might or might not be a good thing since roast meat was laced with quite a bit of fat. Some of the skin was a little tough though. Chicken was well roasted, greasy and had breast meat which was surprisingly tender. Loved the spicy vinegar and a black sauce which tasted much like those Chinese dark soya sauce. There was a distinctive aroma of chilli even though it wasn't really very spicy. One the side, there was also a sour and garlicky soup that one could have free refills on. Needless to say, I'm going to come back again.
