Filipino food is a captivating combination of four culinary traditions – Spanish, American, Malay and Chinese. Not only does the cuisine at the family-owned Romulo Café offer an authentic Filipino experience, but the décor has also been thoughtfully chosen to do the same, with attractive interiors that complement each other.

Premier Hospitality caught up with the person responsible for realising and executing the Romulo family’s vision, Karen Soriano, Creative Director and Interior Designer at True Collective, who commented:

“This was a truly exciting project. We were aware that we were creating what would not be just a restaurant, but something symbolic for the community. Romulo Café aims to elevate Filipino cuisine and the space in which our food is enjoyed; it has to blend in with contemporary London, but it also had to preserve the essence of our heritage and the greatness of the man who inspired it.

“This is a leafy corner of the capital. It’s not a neighbourhood of steel and glass. This is the preserve of people who actually live here and those who choose to visit this end of Kensington High Street to seek out a little charm and calm.

Now there is a new draw along this high-end thoroughfare. Romulo Café London has arrived and it has a celebrated pedigree. There are other Romulos, but they are in Manila in the Philippines. The name was already known, however, before it became associated with culinary excellence.

Carlos P. Romulo served as the President of the Fourth Session of United Nations General Assembly from 1949–1950, and as chairman of the United Nations Security Council. He had served with General Douglas MacArthur in the Pacific, and under eight Philippine presidents, from Manuel L. Quezon to Ferdinand Marcos, as the Secretary of Foreign Affairs of the Philippines.

He was a man able to represent his own country but he was admired internationally and recognised with awards from other nations such as Grand Cross of the Order of the Phoenix from the Greek Government and Grand Cross of the Order of Carlos Manuel do Cespedes from the Republic of Cuba, and he was the first and to date the only Filipino winner of the Pulitzer Prize! He was a respected writer, statesman, soldier and historian and even co-founded the Philippines Boy Scouts. A true man for all seasons.”
