About Lydia’s Lechon

Who would have thought that a P500 capital for a stall back in 1965 is the humble beginning of something as grand as Lydia’s Lechon?

The couple Lydia and Benigno de Roca opened their first lechonan near Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Baclaran, Pasay City. The parishioners loved their Cebu-style lechon thus, spreading the good word around the community.

Its tasty and crispy lechon became a hit in the 1970’s to an elite group of hotels in the country which includes Hyatt and Sulo hotels. It was in 1986 when the first self-service restaurant opened in Roxas Boulevard featuring its new product –  boneless lechon with stuffed seafood paella.

What was originally a closed family corporation has opened its door for franchising in 2005. At present, Lydia’s Lechon has over 28 branches in Metro Manila, Cavite, and Pampanga.
