Looking to enjoy some good ol’ Filipino dishes for Noche Buena with your nearest and dearest?

For many Filipinos, the Yuletide season is all about tradition. It’s not just the things we do like caroling and Simbang Gabi, but also what we have on our dining table come Christmas Eve. Noche Buena—or the “night of goodness”—puts the spotlight on various Pinoy offerings that we all bond over as we make new memories with our loved ones and strengthen our ties.

If your family is opting to enjoy the classics this year, you might want to check out these online stores offering such staples you’d love to have on your spread.

First up: lechon. Mambo’s Lechon offers Lechon Cebu in different sizes: small (P7,995/10-20 pax), medium (P9,295/20-30 pax), and large (P11,595/30-45 pax). This sinful goodness is authentic, traditional, and homegrown.

For smaller families, there’s cochinillo by Mila’s Lechon, which can satisfy around 8-10 people. Each order is priced at P7,500.

Up for boneless Lechon Cebu instead? Bai's has this as the star of its menu at different prices depending on the size: P899 (4-5 pax), P2,099 (10-15 pax), and P3,499 (20-25 pax).

If you’re welcoming visitors into your home, SALO could be your best bet because it has lechon meals packed individually for a safer gathering. Its lechon belly set is priced at P179, but there are other Filipino favorites too featuring lechon like kare-kare, sisig, kilawin, paksiw, and sinigang (P189). Each is served with vegetable side dish and rice. 

Aside from lechon, there should be ham, too. Chef Tavy’s offering is cured, glazed, and smoked perfectly without MSG or any harmful preservatives. It costs P700/kg.

Queso de Bola, anyone? Check out the crowd favorite Marca Piña Cheese, which offers Dutch Edam Queso de Bola. It makes for a great addition to your charcuterie bread, your favorite cheesecake, or some creamy spread. 

Attention, lumpiang shanghai lovers! At Lumpiarito Station, you can customize your own box (minimum of 20s) of this wrapped goodness available in various mouthwatering flavors such as veggie toge, cheesy beef dynamite, fried ubod, signature pork, chicken adobo, and so much more. 

Of course, we didn’t forget about leche flan. R’s Kitchen is selling this decadent custard for only P95 per tub. You’ll love it for its simplicity—just the delicious mix of pure egg, milk, and caramel.

Last, but definitely not the least: some hot cocoa that gives off the sweetest smell and taste of Christmas! Cup Bomb offers hot chocolate bombs with a festive design. Just heat up some milk and pour it into the product for a spectacular marshmallowy treat not just for you, but even the little ones at home.
