aka The Day I Tried to Kill Myself (by Clogging My Arteries) Part 2
Belated Happy Thanksgiving to all my relatives and friends in the US of A! It was hard for me to undergo the yearly Turkey dinner-envy, because thanks to Pizza Hut, my craving for holiday fowl was topped by the newest gourmet creation of Pizza Hut– the Lechon Pizza.
Honestly, I am not a huge fan of pizza and lechon. I think I heard a couple of appalled gasps out there. LOL. A pinoy foodie who doesn’t like lechon and pizza??? Shame! Shaaaaame! To be clear, I like both, I just don’t break into tears of joy when there’s pizza or lechon in front of me. So, last night, as I was staring at the Lechon Pizza I thought, “Ok, let’s do this. I have no high expectations anyway.”
I don’t know if it’s the psyching myself part or the incredibly extravagant classic crust with gooey mozzarella, tender lechon meat and oh-so-crispy lechon skin that made me say, “SHET ANG SARAP NITO HA!” (In English: Shit, this is delicious! …. Hahaha, sorry it wouldn’t be right without the crass expletive! :p)
I usually only appreciate lechon without the brown gunk– este– liver sauce (think the stand alone lechon Cebu yuuuum). So I was surprised last night that I liked the pizza with the lechon sauce. I liked it more when I followed Joko‘s suggestion to put some hot sauce, too.
Just like when I ate the Double Down, I had coleslaw for good measure. With the Lechon Pizza, I had some Tuscan Salad for the same purpose. I didn’t find a reason to shove a forkful of leaves in my mouth after every bite of the pizza though, but I still did because the salad was delicious. 😀
Joko thought the pizza crust tasted very garlicky, she even described the Lechon Pizza as garlic bread on crack. 🙂 I thought it tasted more oniony (what the hell is this adjective). I guess my slice just had more onions than garlic. My next slice had obviously more lechon skin than my 1st. Sadly, I am prone to headaches when I eat too much fat. So even if it was tempting to get a 3rd serving, I took it easy and slowly devoured my 2nd and final slice of Lechon Pizza.
Good thing I have the entire holiday season to go to the nearest Pizza Hut (or for all you lazybones, call 911-1111) and dine on this festive treat again!
Wait wait wait! I have a tagline for Pizza Hut’s Lechon Pizza: Kung pwede lang araw-arawin ang sarap! :p
Belated Happy Thanksgiving again! Lechon just kicked Turkey’s ass.
Salamat to Pizza Hut and Perlas & Luna *hugs Jayce and Jig* for the fabulous dinner!
And for giving me the chance to hang out at Pizza Hut Bistro with my friends….
