Barbeque From Reyes Barbeque

By Nathalie Santos – Dayo

Sunday, hungry from all the walking and going to different places, my friend Jenn and I looked for a place to eat.

We were quite on a budget so we decided to look for a restaurant that serves good food at a price that we can afford. Looking around, our feet took us to the front of this restaurant on the second floor of a building in the UP-Ayala Land Technohub, the name of the establishment, Reyes Barbeque.

This restaurant from the name alone, one can conclude that it serves grilled food. We decided to go inside and look at the menu. We found the prices reasonable so we proceeded to the counter and placed our orders.

What I had was the grilled bangus (milk fish), which came with a cup of Java Rice, their own blend of dip, a calamansi, cayenne pepper and atchara (a Filipino side dish made from pickled papaya, carrot slices, ginger, bell pepper, onions and garlic mixed in a thin sauce made using vinegar, sugar and salt).

We sat at a table located by the window, the view was great. We could see the buildings lining the Technohub premises. I noticed that the place was not a common urban scene, in between the concrete and modern buildings, there was a vast expanse of lawn, with green grass and trees lined across the lawn. There was also a pond with live fish on the grounds. The next thing that we saw got us giggling and laughing, there were a couple of ducks walking across the lawn casually, we fondly christened one of the ducks “quackers.” I guess an empty stomach encourages creativity in both me and my friend.

After 5 minutes, our orders arrived

Milkfish Meal Cooked to Perfection

I paid one hundred and five pesos (Php 105.00) for the milkfish meal. When it was served, I saw two freshly cooked medium slices of milkfish (boneless) along with my Java Rice. I was a happy camper that day. I proceeded to juice my calamansi in the dip and crushed my cayenne pepper in it, tried it and it was good (you can ask for extra calamansi and cayenne pepper from the service crew if you think you need a little more spice and a sour tang)

The fish was cooked to perfection. Glistening from its own oils and fat the fish looked inviting and delicious. After the first bite, I stopped talking with my friend to savor the taste of my meal.

My friend and I also ordered a stick of pork barbeque each, not knowing that I would get two slices of fish.

Fresh From the Grill Barbeque

The barbeque came with their special Peanut Sauce. The barbeque is definitely not a disappointment. For forty pesos (Php40.00), the stick is quite big and there isn’t much fat on it. I personally do not like barbeque that has more fat than meat.

And I purchased a glass of Iced Tea separately for drinks.

In total, I spent less than two hundred pesos (Php200.00) for my meal.


Good service, food grilled to perfection, java rice that tastes good on its own, low price. Reyes barbeque is a sure winner, a must visit place for those who are craving for grilled food.
