Cebu continues to captivate and excite the senses of local and international tourists with its gastronomic possibilities. A culinary melting pot, Cebu, the Queen City of the South prides itself with its world famous “LECHON”. Recognized by Time Magazine in its Best of Asia 2009 issue, lechon de cebu is dubbed as “the world’s best pig.” And there’s a place in Cebu where everyone can enjoy this decadent dish and experience a whole new level of eating lechon.
Mactan Alfresco, a covered food strip inspired by Singapore’s famed hawker centers nestled at Megaworld’s sprawling The Mactan Newtown township in Lapu-Lapu City, is giving tourists a whole new way of experiencing the world-famous Cebu lechon with its very own Lechon Pit.
The official launch of The Lechon Pit in Mactan Alfresco was held last July 01, 2016. It is guaranteed to whet the appetites of foodies and tourists even more as they will be able to witness firsthand how the world’s best pork dish is prepared - from seasoning to roasting, before being chopped and served in plates. Ayer’s Lechon, Cebu Lechon Belly, and Ana’s Lechon were carefully selected to prepare and roast their signature lechon dishes in the Lechon Pit, which can hold up to 12 lechons in a given time.

Megaworld Senior Vice President and Head of Megaworld Lifestyle Malls Mr. Kevin Tan shares “We believe that we have the best pork dish and the best lechon-makers in Mactan Alfresco. And what better way to showcase Cebu’s pride, the lechon, than giving the tourists an immersive experience, where they can see up-close what goes on in preparing the world’s best pork dish. More than exciting their palates, we hope that through this Lechon Pit, more tourists can have a newfound appreciation of our national dish and hopefully help us promote it to their fellow tourists.”
Since the Mactan Alfresco is located just 5-10 minutes away from the Mactan Cebu International Airport, it is best for tourists to visit the Lechon Pit before their departure or after their arrival. Now you don’t have to worry about Cebu traffic. Hehehe
Live lechon roastings are every Saturday and Sunday from 3PM onwards. Ultimately, nothing beats a delicious and crispy Lechon de Cebu.

Mactan Alfresco is located near the main entrance of Mactan Newtown, the country's first "Live-Work-Play-Learn" lifestyle township with its own beachfront located in Lapu-Lapu City, Mactan Island, Cebu.
