Lechon Kawali (pan fried crispy pork)
Lechon kawali….its a deep fried crispy pork (in tagalog-pampabata)… Usually if you dont want to live long, eat this(just joking)..this dish is best paired with burong mustasa, pakbet or other veggies… Did you know that pork is a great source of protein in your diet. A 100g portion of pork provides you with about half of the protein you need in the day. Warning: eat reasonable portion size of pork, cause excessive eating may cause heart related problems…..
