Crunchy, crispy and savory all in one!

From sweet pastries to savory meals, it is without a doubt that Cebu is indeed the best place for food! Remember when we said that Cebuanos love everything roasted? Another food item Cebu takes pride for is their signature Liempo that immediately melts in your mouth. With several liempo brands in Cebu, here’s why the Best Liempo in Cebu belongs to….


Established in July 2009 by Jojo and Honey Vergara, Balamban Liempo started from scratch. Co-owner, Honey Vergara, grew up in Abucayan, Balamban where the town is known for being a farming and fishing municipality.

As the town also has their method of grilling Liempo, the couple decided to share with the rest of the province the distinct and flavorful taste of their Liempo.

For those unfamiliar with Liempo, it is a pork belly cut roasted on a metal rod over a coal-lit fire, similar to how lechon manok is cooked. It is seasoned with a variety of spices and herbs to get a flavorful piece of liempo.

The crackling, golden brown skin creates a combination of crisp and crunch is the perfect pair to very tender succulent pork belly meat. They take their slogan of “Tastier than Lechon” to a whole new level!


Although Balamban Liempo is already dubbed as the Best Liempo in Cebu, they don’t only serve liempo to the general public. They also have their own version of Lechon Manok which is called the Balambanok.

Just like the liempo, it creates the perfect balance for lip-smacking goodness that you can never get tired of!


Good food is a way to interact with people. A small family or friend gathering wouldn’t be complete without liempo as a main dish. Make the best conversations over a bite of the Best Liempo in Cebu. After a bite, you’ll definitely come back for more!
