Ilagan Lechon Kalabaw from Mike Nazarene’s Lechon

A big whole carabao was roasted for the fellowship night of the Tuguegarao off-road race. It is a specialty of Ilagan, Isabela. Mike Nazarene’s Lechon is said to be the best in Ilagan when it comes to lechon. They also prepare lechon baka (cow), lamb, pig and turkey. The dipping sauce is like thick toyomansi (soy sauce and calamansi). It is very different from the sauce of Laoag lechon baka, which is a mix of brandy, Worcestershire sauce and hot spices.

The tired tough drivers and their crew were happy men with the lechon and their Colt 45s. The lechon kalabaw was gone so quick.
