If you’re not in the mood for beef, get the French Duck Confit ($16.90) which is a crispy duck leg served with mashed potato and sauteed mushrooms. Edamame is served by the side and brown sauce is drizzled over the top. We liked that the skin of the duck leg was crispy and the meat was soft and tender.

Sizzling Lechon from Iskina Cebu Singapore
Friends from the Philippines can get a taste of home from Iskina Cebu. Look forward to being treated to Bisdak favourites such as Lechon (suckling/roasted pig) Cebu, Spicy Belly Chon, Liempo Ala Balamban (roast pork belly) and Inasal Nga Manok (grilled chicken). In the past, the suckling pig was imported from Holland but now, you’ll get a taste of Spanish suckling pig, with generous stuffing of lemongrass, spring onion and other secret Cebu ingredients. Chef owner, Chris, is very particular with MSG and insists on not using it so customers get to fully experience the depth of each part of the meat. For Cebu cooking, it’s all about salt so Chris wants to remain congruent yet he lowered down the usage to suit localized tastebuds.
