Potluck Picks: Gringo's Lechon Cubano and Original Whole Chicken

The holidays may be over, but potluck gatherings continue in the new year. Here's my potluck picks from Gringo...

Gringo always seems to have the answer for sumptuous feasts and spontaneous gatherings. The new Lechon Cubano paired with their Original Chicken are perfect for post-holiday get-togethers. In fact, the Lechon Cubano and Original Chicken are reasons enough to gather the gang for an impromptu celebration (for more on Gringo, see my earlier posts, Start the Season of Feasting and Say Hola! to the New Holaday Boards and the New Lechon Cubano from Gringo... on their seasonal offerings, Quick Bites: Head On Down To Gringo With Your Amigos, Now Open at O Square 2 Greenhills on their branch opening in Greenhills and Lunch in a Box Gringo Chicken, Ribds and Friends from 2016).

Gringo's flavorful and inspired take on the traditional lechon has all the mandatory elements we love, including tender juicy pork and a delicately crisp layer of crackling. The blistered crackling delivers that perfect crunch with each bite, contrasting with the juicy pork. But there's more. The rich blend of aromatics and seasonings give the pork a distinct flavor and it's good on its own. Drizzle some of Gringo's Chimichurri Sauce and your favorite lechon is infused with that festive Latin vibe. The Lechon Cubano Fiesta Pack (P 1,680) is a full kilo of pure pork love good for 8 persons that will surely be the hit on your next potluck. Plus, you get a 1.5 L of Coca-Cola free with your purchase. Other size options include the Chikito (P 325/385 with two sides good for 1 person), the Pepito (P 658/P 745 with 3 sides good for 2-3 persons) and the Bendito (P 1,280/P 1,350 with 4 sides good for 3-4 persons).  

The perfectly seasoned pork just hits the spot. Follow it up with a crisp bite of the crackling and you know you have a winner for your potluck. The hombres at Gringo do amazing things with the slab of pork, and the Lechon Cubano is a crave-worthy addition to any festive gathering.

Pair it up with another of Gringo's specialties and you've got a winning pair. The Original Whole Chicken (P 785) comes with your choice of three sides for that sumptuous potluck get-together.

The delicate notes of the richly seasoned and juicy chicken are perfectly enhanced by the spices and the flame for bold savory notes. Each bite delivers sharp and zesty lemon and herbal notes inspired by Latin flavors followed by subtle hints of smoke from the grill. Your Gringo's experience just isn't complete without their Original Whole Chicken.

And don't forget the sides. Buttered Corn, Mashed Potato and Marble Potato Salad with Gringo's Original Whole Chicken complete the feast. And with Gringo's proprietary Sauce Mio, your potluck gathering is another successful and memorable get-together with friends and family. 

Gringo is located at the Ground Floor, Parking 1B, O Square 2, Greenhills Shopping Center, Greenhills, San Juan or call 0935 696-3053 and 0929 801-9464 for inquiries and reservations.
