This post is about one of the best appetizers in the Philippines. Ensaladang Lechon Kawali can be served as a main course with rice. Most Filipinos love this during lunch or dinner. And just the way they love this as their main course with rice, men here in the Philippines appreciate this more during occassions or even on a simple gathering with friends as their appetizer or what is called here in the Philippines as “pulutan”. This is because of the appetizing taste of this ensaladang lechon kawali that makes it one of the perfect partners of beers.
