Fulfilling desires for crispy, crackled and juicy roast pork cooked Filipino-style, Sydney Cebu Lechon on Enmore Road has Sydneysiders returning time and again for a fix. This Newtown native Filipino eatery is styled like an old-fashioned Cebu street stall, where the aromatic, crunchy skinned pork – or lechon – is a national treasure.
