Lechon Manok

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

I spent last weekend at my mother’s place. Saturday at around lunchtime, Nico and Nica (my younger siblings) had a sudden craving for lechon manok (roast chicken). Nico had to go to town to buy us pre-roasted, ready-to-eat chicken. We yearned for it so much that we decided not to eat what our mother prepared for lunch and just wait until he arrives. It took him more than an hour to get back. We were so hungry that the three of us ate the whole chicken. It was lip-smacking, delicious-to-the-bone good.

After eating, our craving for chicken sated, we watched some TV. A few hours later, our mother arrived from work. And guess what her pasalubong for us is? Roasted chicken. Oh no! The three of us groaned in dismay when we saw it. Not another lechon manok! My sister told our mother what we had for lunch. Then we all started laughing out loud.

lechon manok overdose? i do remember that lechon manok from the Philippines have a very distinct delicious taste, unlike the ones we have here :(.
