Rico’s Lechon Opens Third (and Biggest) Branch in Cebu
Lovers of Cebu lechon, rejoice!
Rico’s Lechon, undoubtedly the best lechon in Cebu, is now only a couple of paces away! After the success of their first two branches (at the Mactan Promenade in Lapu-lapu City and at the Ridges Commercial Center in F. Cabahug Street,) the brand has decided to open its third (and biggest) branch to date. Located at the posh Axis Entertainment Avenue along Escario Street, the new branch is the brand’s response to customers’ clamor for more spacious and more accessible locations.
Read on to know more about this wonderfully-planned and daintily-designed foodie heaven we’re sure you’d want to visit real soon.
Rico’s Lechon at Axis is the brand’s third and largest branch (and the second one in Cebu City.) Occupying two floors in the inner row of the complex, Rico’s Lechon at Axis gives Cebuanos from the midtown and uptown areas in Cebu City better and easier access to the best lechon in town.
Last December 12, during a star-studded ceremony attended by members of the local media, special guests, and some of the country’s best cooks and chefs, the branch was officially opened to the public.
Present during the blessing were food columnist Chef Sandy Daza, Rico’s Lechon Founder and CEO Mr. Rico Dionson, Axis Marketing Officer Allen Andre Suarez, and CM and Sons Food Products, Inc. CEO Jonathan Manuela T. Lo.
Rico’s Lechon at Axis Entertainment Avenue is located right at the heart of the complex. Its all-glass facade gives curious onlookers a glimpse of the restaurant’s exquisite interiors.
A short service followed by the blessing of the new branch marked the official beginning of Rico’s Lechon’s third and biggest branch in Cebu.
Present during this special event were Rico’s Lechon Founder and CEO Mr. Rico Dionson, his children, and his whole family.
After the blessing and the opening activities, guests were finally allowed to see the lovely interiors of the restaurant. Similar to its two older stores, the Escario branch is both lavish and practical. The main dining area can accommodate up to a hundred guests.
Near the main door is a small booth that caters to take-out orders.
Moving up the steps towards the second floor can be a truly wonderful experience. From the unique overhead lamps to the portraits on the wall, the restaurant has an abundant supply of things that captivate and mesmerize.
Take a look at the restroom on the second floor. It’s simple and elegant at the same time.
The second floor is spacious. The whole space, however, can be divided into smaller partitions to allow various functions to happen all at the same time.
The main function hall can accommodate up to around a hundred guests.
