Romulo Café London
A taste of the Philippines in the heart of Kensington
We serve fine Filipino food 7 days a week.
When it comes to fiendishly good Philippine cuisine, Romulo Café is London’s answer to Manila’s fashionable restaurant and food scene. From a converted Georgian townhouse near the Design Museum, we’re telling the world the story of fine Filipino food. Food that’s made with the best seasonal ingredients and British produce. All the classics are here. Binagoongan Crispy Pata, Chicken Relleno. Beef and Seafood Kare-Kare. Pork adobo, pandesal and purple yam. All served in generously portioned sharing plates or smaller size ‘platitos’.
Our inspiration may be the Philippines’ greatest ever statesman, but to owner Rowena Romulo, Carlos P. Romulo was simply a brilliant Lolo, or grandfather. Romulo Café brings his generous spirit back to life, in our food and impeccable service.
We’ve based our menus on heirloom family recipes. But we know Filipino cuisine is an evolving phenomenon. So we support Chef Jeremy Villanueva whenever he wants to strike out with innovative new creations, twisting the Philippine culinary template of Malay, Chinese, Spanish and American influences into something uniquely Filipino.
