Rey's Place Overview

Exotic flavour combinations to savour and devour await at Rey’s Place on Crown Street at Darlinghurst. Cool exposed brick walls and black bench seating sets a chilled out vibe, as mounted wall lights emit a moody glow for discerning foodies to ponder a Filipino fusion menu, while downstairs, after fivers meet in the late night, dug-out bar. Go hard with a starter like spicy ceviche with avocado salsa and coconut quinoa, or a braised and chopped pork belly slider with ginger, garlic and onion, dressed with smoky adobar aioli. For something more substantial be tempted by grilled stuffed squid, mango salsa and ginger and lime dressing, or oxtail stew in peanut sauce, with blanched string beans and shrimp paste glazed eggplant. Sweeten the finish with soft and smooth coconut or mango sorbet.

    It's a warm Friday date night for Matt and I and we are heading to Rey's Place in Surry Hills for dinner.
