Lockdown Chows 3: Lydia’s Lechon, Le Petite Chef, and Meatsumo

Even if we are on GCQ already, take-out and dine-in at home will be the “new normal” for us for the foreseeable future because I just don’t feel safe going out yet and risking our health. But that doesn’t mean we won’t be able to enjoy our favorite food anymore.

Social media has allowed many of our old-time (and some newly discovered) favorite restaurants to operate and offer their specialties via pick-up or delivery. Check out some of my winning food finds and what I’ve ordered during this quarantine.

My latest lockdown chows discoveries

Lydia’s Lechon

Lydia’s Lechon’s charcoal roast lechon never fails to satisfy! It still has the same taste we’ve come to love (and crave for) and can be enjoyed on its own even without sauce. It’s beautifully cooked and wonderfully seasoned. Of course, it wins where it matters the most when it comes to lechon… crispy skin!

Sushi Bake is one of Meatsumo’s famous savory specialties. Just take one bite and you’ll agree in a heartbeat.

Sushi Bake in bed!

So… what is a Sushi Bake, you ask? Well, think of it as a deconstructed sushi. It’s served in a baking tray which you can scoop out, allowing you to control the serving portion. You can either wrap your serving of sushi bake with a sheet of nori or just put a dollop on it and eat. The bits of tempura breading give this dish additional texture, so don’t forget to add them. It may seem like just a passing trend, but its amazing taste and texture guarantee’s that this Sushi Bake is definitely here to stay.

Meatsumo Sushi Bake

Meatsumo’s Sushi Bake has a generous layer of cheese, kani, mango strips, cucumber, Japanese mayo, sushi rice and ebiko. It comes with 2 packs of nori sheets and tempura breading bits.
