TIPS: How to Place Order from Elars Lechon in Quezon Avenue

One week ago, Carmina had pointed to Mom Violy there is a place to order her lechon. Mom Violy said, let's go there one day. Carmina was able to bring Mom Violy to  Elars Lechon . The branch we went too was in Quezon Avenue which is close by. First step is to enter in their office facility to place your order.  The person inside will ask what you would like to order. Here is their price list: What they offer for Christmas in case you're interested in it. It is very easy to place your order those who are just walking in out of curiosity. Second Step: Go outside and hand in your order at the counter where you can see the lechon in front of you being chopped up on based on the weight you've made. The lechon will be placed in a box along with the lechon sauce inside an eco-bag. Mom Violy is very happy that she was able to buy her favorite Elars Lechon. NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertising for lechon sold at Elars Lechon. Subscribe & follow @ Carmina Lifestyle  a plac

Chestnut in season for the holiday

Chestnuts come during the month of December in the Philippines often we buy it in Divisoria on a stall in the street where someone is frying in a big pan. In Tagalog we call it castanas they are sold in a brown paper bag newly roasted sold by 1/4 kilo, 1/2 kilo and 1 kilo depending on what size you would like to purchase. During our pandemic months my mom's neighbor is selling it for 1 Kilo for PHP 300.00 ($6.00) the taste is soft, sweet and best hot can be cooked in the toaster oven.  To stay fresh leave in your refrigerator when you feel like eating it again. Or you can remove it from the shell and place in a Tupperware with a lid. To crack it open you can use a nut cracker I just use a crab cracker it does the same purpose. You may purchase your chestnuts at this person who we had placed our order. Note: I am not selling chestnuts just my favorite during the holiday season.
