This Filipino restaurant and cocktail bar is the brainchild of chef Francis Puyat and 100 Hoxton founder Andrew Zilouf and offers flavours and ingredients that will be unfamiliar to most Londoners.

The pair have named their venture after the two staple dishes on the menu: kinilaw is a Filipino take on ceviche which uses palm vinegar and kalamansi instead of lime, while buko is Filipino-style ice cream served in a baby coconut shell.

Kinilaw varieties on the menu include the bagoong fisherman’s treat (daikon-fermented shrimp, green peppercorns and fried garlic), and the baboy bounty: pork belly, diced cucumber, chilli and mackerel. From the buko, you can enjoy flavours such as red bean butterscotch, lychee with sumac popping candy, and a sea salt and black pepper option topped with caramel popcorn. You can wash it all down with paired cocktails, alongside wines and craft beers.
