Romulo Café is a sister venue to the original restaurant in Manila, and offers many of its signature dishes including Lola Virginia’s Chicken Relleno, Adobo Romulo Style and Tito Greg’s Kare-Kare.
The restaurant draws upon the legacy of Filipino international statesman General Carlos P. Romulo and his late wife Virginia Llamas-Romulo, who kept the family’s recipes. His granddaughters operate both restaurants.
“Opening a branch of Romulo Café in London means a lot to me and my family,” comments Rowena Romulo, owner of Romulo Café’s London outpost.
“My grandfather’s open and warm character enabled him to touch the lives of many people, across countries and cultures.
“If his currency was journalism and international diplomacy, my sister and I, our friends and cousins, have tried to touch lives through the medium of food.
“I hope that Romulo Café in London will make a true statement, not just about how good Filipino food is, but about how we see ourselves as Filipinos.
“Wherever we are in the world, we hold our heads up high. Our restaurant is for all Filipinos and anyone who loves good food in London.”
