In the event that a craving for lechon strikes you, dont waste your money and time on something else, just head straight to Quezon Avenue before Welcome Rotonda, find Elars quaint store and order the best lechon in the metro. A half kilo for less than P500, it's truly great value for money. Beware the lechon cutters though, as requests... More

There are 3 lechon "types" that I really like. The Cebu lechon, the lechon I had along the road side in Timoga, Iligan and Elars in Quezon Avenue. Elars edges the 2 lechons, for me, by not so much of a margin. The only lechon I buy for any special occasion we have! If it is not Elars, I don't... More

This is by far the best lechon in Manila, with its crunchy skin and tender pork, I can't think of any other lechon restaurant that comes close to Elars.

I was in the vicinity and looking around not wanting to get lunch at another fast food joint, I stepped into Elar's. As I opened the restaurant door, I was surprised to see a throng of diners. Some lining up at the counter, more at the food display, and others happily devouring their lunch fare. It was a full house... More

Elar's is the best lechon in the Philippine Market. The skin of their succulent roast pigs are crunchy and flavourful, you would actually feel the juices dripping off them as you take a bite. The meat part of the lechon is also very tasty. You wouldn't miss the liver sauce that goes along with the lechon because the skin and... More

Elar's Lechon is the very best lechon for me. Have tasted this since I was a child, and the taste just doesn't change. We have tried other much cheaper lechons at La Loma, but really nothing compares to Elar's. Their sauce is always fresh and perfect, and actually you don't even need the sauce at all because the meat is... More
