Top 10 All Time Filipino Favourite Noche Buena Recipes
Top 10-7 (Pork, Pasta and Dessert)
10 . Lechon – A whole roasted pig usually bought in specialised establishments. It can be made out of a mature pig or the juvenile ones-. This usually is the centrepiece of the dining table, for those who are budget conscious roasted pigs head is a good alternative. This is then served with sweet liver sauce and/or sweet spicy vinegar dip. Take note the crispy skin is a crowd favourite.

9 . Bibingka and Puto Bumbong – Like I mentioned above these are a favourite street food so after the Christmas Eve mass expect a lot of people buying this treat so they can serve it at their dining table.
