I’ve been hearing about the pugon-roasted (pugon is brick oven in English) asado (roast pork) of Panciteria Lido and how good it was. I’ve tried brick-oven cooked pizzas but roast pork? This is gonna be my first.
We were finally able to try it when we passed by a Panciteria Lido branch along Pasong Tamo, on our way to Waltermart.
It was sooo good (!) The pugon-roasted asado surprisingly tasted like smoked bacon which I really love. It was cooked well and evenly – with no burnt or half-cooked areas.
I’d gladly go back there again if only to have those yummy asado. We also plan to try their other dishes (they serve mostly Chinese dishes) to see if they taste as good as those from the old panciterias in Binondo.
Panciteria Lido also has branches in Las Pinas, Mandaluyong, Paranaque and Quezon City. Check out their exact locations here.
