Lechon kawali or Pan-roasted pork to some is different from Lechon, the well known Filipino dish which is also the national dish of the Philippines. While lechon is cooked in a pit filled with flamed charcoal, Lechon kawali is cooked by boiling then later deep frying a portion of the pig (pork belly usually) .

Lengua Estofada (sometimes called Lengua Estofado) is stewed Ox tongue cooked in tomato sauce. This dish is of Hispanic origin; it has been adopted by the Filipino Palate (Panlasang Pinoy) due to Three Centuries of Spanish colonization.
Some people look at this dish as something exotic or unusual. Adjectives like “gross” or “yucky” are sometimes used to describe it. When I was still a child, I personally despise Lengua. Back then, it was hard to understand why many people enjoy eating cow’s tongue. As years passed by, I learned to appreciate this delightful dish. I just imagined that the meat I’m eating is beef brisket (believe me, it worked). Did you know what my first impression was after tasting this dish? An upscale version of the Beef Kaldereta
