Following its success in Manila, Romulo Café has opened its doors to all of London’s food lovers following two launch parties hosted by the Romulo family.
Amid surroundings both chic and casual, the 70-seater restaurant offers a taste of the Philippines in the heart of Kensington, one of London’s key shopping and residential boroughs. Its interiors have been designed to evoke a private London home, with a few surprise touches.
London, known for its hip and ground-breaking food scene, can now enjoy all the grace and verve of Manila’s ‘go to’ Romulo Café restaurants. In London, Romulo Café will offer many of the signature dishes of its sister restaurants in Manila – from appetizing bar food and main courses to share, to healthy options and desserts or ‘puddings’. The restaurant is divided into four separate dining areas: the General’s Bar, the Ambassador’s Lounge, the Diplomat’s Dining Room and the CPR Library, which can also be converted into a private dining space.
Romulo Cafe draws upon the family legacy of one of the Philippines’ foremost international statesmen – General Carlos P. Romulo and his wife, the late Virginia Llamas-Romulo, who was the keeper of the family’s heirloom recipes. Romulo Café was first established in Manila in 2009 by their granddaughter Sandie Romulo-Squillantini and her husband Enzo Squillantini where it has since expanded to three branches (with a fourth on its way).
