About Sydney Cebu Lechon Native Filipino Eatery

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. Food is how owners Fred and Fely Mahusay reconnected with their homeland after migrating to Australia and they are now celebrating more than 27 years in business. Start your feast with crispy battered vegetable spring rolls and spicy garlic vinaigrette gravy; before a plate of perfect pork - marinated for 12 hours in garlic, lemongrass, shallots, star anise, peppercorns, salt and bay leaves - cooked over charcoal for three hours, served with rice and sides.
