The birth of Sydney Cebu Lechon started way back in 1987 when a Filipino couple, Fely and Fred Mahusay migrated to the Commonwealth of Australia. At that time, Filipino food is very hard to find so the couple decided to cook Lechón, a specialty in their regional home, Cebu.


They began roasting suckling pigs for their family and friends to ease their homesick blues thinking that food was their only way to connect back to their motherland. In 1991, the family decided to share their authentic Lechon with the public and Sydney Cebu Lechon was then born.


Their son, Wil Mahusay and Their recipe


Their son, Wil Mahusay also joined their family business to lend a hand to his parents since roasting a whole suckling pig is very labor intensive, it takes good several hours to prepare and finish to get a good result. Their recipe, blend of shallots, star anise, chili (optional), garlic and lemongrass are stuffed inside the pig, then it will be sewn up and then roasted over a hand-built oven for three to four hours.


Besides from serving their beloved customers, Sydney Cebu Lechon is also a part of a non-profit organization called The Filipino Food Movement Australia which aims to champion Filipino food and culture into the mainstream, to create broader awareness and appreciation of Filipino cuisine and culture.
