Lutong Mekeni-Filipino Hog Heaven

kriminalrat | Jun 15, 2013 03:18 PM

Many say that the Lechon from the Phillipines is the best pork dish in the world. I've never been there but can say that Lutong Mekeni off of University Ave in St Paul makes some tasty pork. I had the Hamonadong Pata which is a sticky sweet Ham Hock. It falls off the bone and the abundant fat covering it makes it a sweet rich dish. I also had Pork adobo. Adobo is the national dish of the Phillipines and Lutong characterizes the best aspects of Adobo...The savory of the pork with the tang of vinegar and saltiness of soy blend well with the pork. They didn't even have Lechon on the menu but they usually do. The Menu changes weekly and they are only open Saturdays for lunch untill they finish their kitchen. Check out their facebook page on Friday as they post the menu for the next day. My first Filipino food experience and I am excited to try more.
