Besides the amazing food, they serve local craft beer, international wines and Filipino inspired cocktails. If you want a perfect date night, dinner with friends and family, or even book the whole venue for larger occasions, Rey’s Place is the best for you.
Before the owner, Jonathan Bayad opened Rey’s Place he has doubts about how Western diners will receive Filipino cuisine. Fortunately, this didn’t stop him to step up and present modern Filipino dishes that have true traditional flavors.
In Rey’s Place, they make sure that the Lechon or suckling pig is roasted slowly to make the skin extra crunchy. It is served with Lechon sarsa, a sauce made of vinegar, onion, chili, garlic and brown sugar. The charred chicken livers give the sauce richness and thick consistency.
