If you’re planning to explore the southern sections of the Outer Banks, make a stop in Rodanthe to fuel up on Filipino barbecue. The crisp and tender pork belly cebuchon is their star, but we also recommend the sticky muu yang pork spare ribs with a sweet chili sauce that’s cooked on the open grill beside Hoy Lechon’s food truck. The meal plates come with your choice of rice, pancit, or macaroni salad (get the pancit if it’s not already sold out) and it's all ideal for an ocean-side lunch before exploring the more secluded beach areas or driving down to the Ocracoke ferry. But we wouldn’t blame you if you choose to eat it immediately in Hoy Lechon’s parking lot either.
