A popular dish that can be found in various Latin countries, the roasted pig is considered the national dish of the Philippines. Preparation is always traditional, slow-cooked in a pit. The pig is tied to a rod and is slowly turned throughout the cooking process. After several hours of careful preparation, the pig develops a crispy reddish skin — a favorite of those who get to enjoy it.

On an episode of "No Reservations," Anthony Bourdain proclaimed Filipino lechon to be the best roast pig in the world.
