The family that runs the Reyes Barbecue, the leading Manila-style barbecue QSR chain in the country recently opened a new concept of restaurant that gives tribute to their generations of a shared passion for cooking.
Reyes Barbecue was founded by Frank Reyes whose family culinary roots span more than 140 years. To celebrate the culinary and dining legacy of Frank’s maternal grandmother Aling Asiang (founder of the famous Aristocrat Restaurant) and great grandmother Luisang Kare (the owner of the famous kare-kare eatery in Navotas) have left behind, CALLE REYES Manila Barbecue was born.
During the media event to celebrate the grand launch of the first Calle Reyes at SM City Marikina, it was emphasized that this fresh, new concept strides forward to pave the road in creating new and exciting flavors that all foodies will be excited to try.
