The line was a bit long so I decided to take a few pictures around the place while waiting for our number to be called. I snapped a couple of pictures of the lady chopping the lechons.

This lady has a mean swing and she can hack a whole roasted pig in around 2 minutes. You sure don't wanna be on the other side of that blade.

We ordered a kilo of Lechon Baboy for 350 pesos and a kilo of Lechon Ulo (Boneless) for 280 pesos. Almost 50% cheaper than any other lechon places here in Manila. The price of a whole CNT Lechon Baboy starts at about 2,800 pesos.

The skin was crispy and really tasty. The saltiness of the skin was just right to make you keep coming back for more. The meat was soft and flavorful especially the rib part of the lechon where the stuffing was placed during roasting. We also ordered a side of Chicharon Bituka (Crispy pork intestines) and Puso (Rice cooked in coconut palms).
Please note that if you are planning to visit CNT Lechon, make sure to come early as this place gets jam-packed especially during lunch time.
However, the overall CNT Lechon experience was awesome. The food was great and delicious aside from being affordable. We were so full that we weren't able to finish the 2 kilos of lechon but we were more than happy to have it bagged to take back home. Amazingly, the skin is still crispy when we arrived at our friends house. We reheated it in the oven and voila, the perfect beer partner on a lazy afternoon in the Cebu suburbs.
