Patrons of lechon manok and liempo, two of the most popular Filipino food with stalls all over Cagayan de Oro City are now adding more on their budget as prices have gone up significantly.
Lechon manok is now sold between P230 to P250 while prices of liempo now range from P170 to P200. Some operators have also scaled down the size of their liempo to about 3/4 the original size for the price of P130-P135.
Accordingly, a lot of factors have caused the price increase. Among them include the high demand on chicken and the effect of the African Swine Flu on the supply of pork meat.
