Romulo Café London selected for a Time Out Recommended Award 2017

(London, 29th January 2018) Time Out, the leading global media and entertainment brand that inspires and enables people to make the most of the city, has today announced that Romulo Café London has been selected for a Time Out Recommended Award 2017.

The award reflects the fact that Time Out editors consider Romulo Café London to be one of the best of its kind in London. The award is reserved for places which have been reviewed and awarded four or five stars, or been specially recommended by Time Out critics. It celebrates what Time Out considers the best venues in the city.

Rowena Romulo, owner of Romulo Café London, said, ‘My colleagues and I are extremely proud to have been selected for a Time Out Recommended Award 2017.

‘Since we opened Romulo Cafe London, we have all worked very hard to make fine Filipino cuisine recognised and enjoyed by a wider international audience.  This means focussing one hundred percent on the quality of our food and service, and making sure we always do our best to do even better.

‘My wish is that one day classic Filipino dishes like our Romulo Family versions of ‘Kare-Kare’ and ‘Chicken Relleno’ will come as naturally to people’s lips as other popular Asian dishes. Because Filipino food is really much more than a trend, and we can see that from the UK to the US to Europe, it’s slowly but surely establishing a permanent, and increasingly visible, footprint. To my mind, this award confirms that London is truly a sophisticated food capital, and with our new event catering arm, Romulo’s Kensington Kitchen, I hope we can spread the word even further.’

A spokesperson of Time Out said, ‘Time Out is dedicated to discovering and championing the best of the city, and giving outstanding venues the recognition they deserve. The Time Out Recommended Awards 2017 are a great way for venues to shout about their Time Out rating, by displaying our award in their venue and online on their website.’

Romulo Cafe London was opened less than 2 years ago by Rowena Romulo and Chris Joseph as the first international branch of the Romulo family’s successful restaurant business in Manila. Their aim was to bring ‘a taste of the Philippines to the heart of Kensington’ while paying homage to the memory of Rowena’s grandfather, the late Filipino statesman and diplomat, Carlos P. Romulo.

Romulo Café in London is located at 343 Kensington High Street W8 6NW. It is open 7 days a week, from Monday to Sunday, serving lunch, merienda and dinner.
