Time Out says

Get a taste of the Philippines inside this tiny Darlinghurst terrace boasting big island flavours and ace cocktails

Proudly flying the Filipino food flag in the inner city, Rey’s Place is situated in a cosy terrace, right on the fringe of the CBD at the Darlinghurst end of Crown Street. Rey’s menu is designed for sharing, and hits the sweet spot between simple Filipino home-cooking and a more modern, slightly fancified approach. Start with a snack-type dish like chicharon na manok, a crisp chicken skin dish with a spiced soy and vinegar sauce, or the traditional longganisa, a sweet garlic and pepper cured pork sausage. Follow this up by sampling larger dishes, like the namesake lechon, a delicious slow-roasted suckling pig, served with a housemade sarsa and chilli-mansi dipping sauce. Up the ante with a cocktail from the list of tropical, island-inspired ingredients, as well as San Miguel beer and Don Papa rum imported straight from the source.
