Kwento Ni Toto shares this newest store in Makati that offers another tasty option for lechon lovers. Balamban Liempo is newest place to look for tasty lechon, liempo and roasted chicken.  It is owned by Jojo and Honey Vergara.  Both of them were formerly employed in a company but wanted to have a business on their own, so they decided to have a grill station in their own garage and that's where it all started.

Mr. Jojo Vergara, Founder and CEO said that "There are no brand of liempo here in the Philippines, so we named it Balamban Liempo, since we offer Grilled Liempo and Lechon Manok."
Balamban is a small town in Cebu City where both of the owners came from.  With their love to their home town include it as their brand name. And with that love they are sharing what Balamban can offer when it comes to roasted liempo or pork belly as Balamban Liempo opens its first takeout counter in the country's financial center today.

It emanates an aromatic smell of fresh herbs and spices. Balamban Liempo is a golden brown slab of marbleized pork belly which possesses a tangy taste with a hint of spice.

Another popular take-out item is the Balambanok. This has the same unique herbs and spice found in its liempo stuffed inside, resulting in a distinct taste not found in other brands of lechon manok.
"The opening of the first branch in Makati today is a milestone for Balamban Liempo." said founder and CEO Jojo Vergara. Balamban was located in the busy streets of Guadalupe near the market so it is very much noticeable for the public.
