Top Filipino Restaurants in London




Note: Here is a another guest post by Clare Carmichael, a food blogger from UK.

London is a great city and there’s so much to do you’re sure to have a whale of a time. The only problem is that the British aren’t exactly known for their cooking skills so if you’re sick of greasy fry-ups and equally-as-greasy fish & chips then why not go to one of the many Filipino restaurants in London and eat a bit closer to home?

Here are a few Filipino restaurants in London:


Lutong Pinoy Filipino Restaurant

– 10 Kenway Rd, South Kensington, SW5 0RR.

With the all-you-can-eat buffet at the Filipino Restaurant costing £8.00 it means you’re able to try as many Filipino delights at once AND not break the bank. Don’t worry if you’ve nothing to chat about over dinner as there’s a TV in the corner showing Filipino game shows! If you still have some room left at the end then it’s recommended that you order the Ginatanng Bilo-Bilo, which is a steaming bowl of sago and yam in coconut milk.


Josephine’s Filipino Restaurant

–  4 Charlotte St., Fitzrovia, W1T 2LP.
Here you can sample your favourite dishes from the Philippines! The restaurant opened in 1996 and has welcomed many celebrities through its doors including celebrity chef, Gino D’Acampo, Ricky Gervais, Ken Livingstone and many others. The most popular dishes at Josephine’s are Adobo, Lechon Kawali and Halo Halo. The restaurant also caters for parties, weddings and corporate events.

Kusinang Munti

– 913 Garratt Lane, Tooting Broadway, SW17 0LT.
This restaurant serves the finest Oriental and Asian cuisines such as Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Indian and Halal, but specialises in Filipino delicacies as well. A buffet is available or alternatively you can order à la carte specialities such as kare-kare, dinuguan, binagoongang baboy and many more. Kusinang Munti seats up to 55 people and can be booked for parties and special occasions.


Port of Manila

– 129-131 Brackenbury Rd, Hammersmith, W6 0BQ.
Port of Manila has received the prestigious AA Rosette Award for Culinary Excellence so it must be doing something right! Their dishes are made using recipes from all over the Philippines and the staff is known to be extremely friendly and welcoming. The food is also available for takeaway, which is perfect if you don’t want to venture outside, but are in the mood for some lovely Filipino food. This establishment has also been frequented by many V.I.P. guests such as Ambassador Lagdameo, Sarah Geronimo and Sharon Cuneta.


Kika

– 228 St. Paul’s Rd, Islington, N1 2LJ.
This Filipino restaurant also serves organic food so it’s perfect if you’re looking for Filipino grub AND are health-conscious. This establishment is best known for its breakfasts and lunches and there’s also karaoke so why not make a full night out of it? Tasty Filipino food and then a singsong afterwards. Parties of up to 25 people can be catered for and there’s also a back garden where people can sit and watch the world go by.

Bintang Restaurant

– 93 Kentish Town Rd, NW1 8NY.
This restaurant, which opened in 1987, specialises in Pan Asian fusion cuisine and serves dishes from Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines, of course! The interior consists of dark wood, bamboo plants and varied artwork. If you don’t like forking out for expensive wines you’ll be pleased to know that this restaurant has a BYOB policy so just head to the nearest shop and choose your own wine. If you want to celebrate there they accommodate parties of more than 15 people.
