2 for 1 at Romulo Café

With restaurants spanning across several continents, Romulo Café now comes to London, bringing the unsung hero of oriental food; Filipino cuisine.

Inspired by the legacy of the renowned former President of the United Nations General Assembly General Carlos P. Romulo, his granddaughter, Sandie Romulo Squillantini, first opened a Romulo Café in Manila in 2009, and the runaway success of the restaurants is sure to be repeated in the London dining scene.

With an four distinct dining areas all created by Design Director Karen Soriano and the kitchen filled with passionate chefs guided by the gifted Chef Lorenzo, Romulo Café is a restaurant that is sure to provide an exquisite experience with each visit.

Members who call in advance with their tastecard can enjoy the sumptuous fare served at a splendid price, making it nigh on impossible to think of a reason not to enjoy something from each section of the menu.

Start the feast with one of the fantastic appetisers, such as the enchanting Bangus Pate, a smoked milkfish spread enriched with orange puree and caviar, the traditional Patotim, a steamed bun filled with slow cooked duck, and the eclectic ensemble that is The General’s Combo Platter, which offers a tantalising taste of various starters; perfect for starting a group meal.

The main event features a concise, yet carefully crafted, list of delectable dishes to choose between. Particularly noteworthy choices include the rich Lola Virginia’s Chicken Relleno, a roasted chicken stuffed with ground pork, chorizo and raisins, the sublime Binagoongang Pata, a deboned crispy pork leg with a tomato shrimp sauce and aubergine salsa, and the heavenly Lola Felisa’s Canton, a refreshing medley of crispy canton noodles with shitake mushrooms and babycorn.

Also offering a wealth of divine desserts, diners visiting Romulo Café shan’t leave disappointed.

    " This is a hidden gem and I am very happy to have discovered. We were on our way to see a play and decided to try this place out. In all honesty I did not have huge expectations as I thought this place was a cafe and that the food would be the usual semi edible cafe fare. I was very wrong, on all counts.
    As we entered the meticulously clean, tastefully decorated premises we were welcomed by the manager and sat to our table. The list of cocktails is impressive and so is the way that they serve them. We had a starter each and two sharing mains. The food was beautifully served, tasted really delicious and the service was great.The portions are really generous and in spite of stuffing myself to within an inch of my life I could not finish my chicken.
    Above all the service was excellent. Highly reccomend this place. "

    " Visited Romulo Cafe recently for dinner and it was a a very enjoyable experience. The food was both delicious and interesting, and with Tastecard the bill was more than reasonable. Our visit was made exceptional by the manager, who found time for every diner and had a warm & convivial manner. I had a cocktail which was beautifully presented, and we were offered help with choosing the dishes from the menu. Judging from the website, the restaurant is one of the four - the other three based in Philippines, so I'd guess that the food is authentic. It definitely tastes good! Although the restaurant is far from my home area, I intend to return time and again because both me and my dining companion had such an amazing time. Highly recommended! "

    We decided to visit this restaurant because of the promo leaflet given out at the recent concert of a Filipino rock singer. We didn't know until we got there that it accepted tastecard. As walk-in customers, it was understandable that they would not accept tastecard without a booking but my husband and I were hungry and had the 20% discount promo anyway! So I would suggest making a booking in advance if you're going to use your tastecard! They won't accept a walk-in tastecard especially on a Saturday!

    The staff were wonderful! All in comfortable casual uniform! I asked about their specialities! We were recommended the crispy beef short ribs, crispy pata, pork sisig and tinapa roll! The pandesal (bread) was to die for! Just loved it. No charge for that! San Miguel beer is a must for every Filipino man :-). Hubby had two bottles whilst I had the Imelda cocktail. Good presentation of food! Will visit again and try other food next time. Have already recommended to my friends and relatives! Some may find it a little pricey without tastecard! "
