If you’re a fan of slow-roasted suckling pig, succulent and covered with crackled skin, you best hit up Sydney Cebu Lechon Native Filipino Restaurant as soon as possible. The food at this family-run Newtown restaurant is traditional Filipino cuisine at its best – juicy, satisfying and authentic. The house speciality is Cebu lechon, whole roasted pork cooked over charcoal for three hours and marinated in aromatics like lemongrass, garlic, star anise and shallots.

Founded by Fred and Fely Mahusay nearly three decades ago, Sydney Cebu Lechon Native Filipino Restaurant has rightfully earned a great reputation in the city’s dining scene.
