Right underneath the 7 train line on Roosevelt Ave in Woodside, Renee’s has been making excellent Filipino food since 1992. But even in 2020, this casual neighborhood spot has people lining up for a seat on its tiny sidewalk patio. One of the many reasons this place is so popular is its sisig, made exclusively with pieces of pork head. The result is a crunchy meat salad with grilled onions and a sprinkle of crunchy chicharron. The pork chunks are so nicely charred, it seems all the pieces get their own real estate on the grill - only to be removed just a second before getting too crispy.
