One of the best foods in the Philippines is the crispy pork dishes - Lechon, Lechon Kawali, Crispy Pata, Cochinillo, etc. While my brother visited Manila, we had Crispy Pata as often as possible (and after he left, we had fish as often as possible). We called ahead (at least 24 hours, but their menu says 48 hours) to have cochinillo (a baby pig) for lunch at Cirkulo. It was excellent! My only critique is that it took so long from the time they presented our half cochinillo to the time they brought it out all cut and plated. The skin was thin and crispy, and the meat was tender and delicious. I'll definitely go back for more!

Thank you. :)
