Bring the Restaurant Experience to your Home this Valentines with Romulo Café & Restaurant

You are worth more than just a Gü pot from Sainsbury’s this Valentine’s. Celebrating during a national lockdown and a global pandemic can be very hit and miss. So we have a 5 course Valentine’s menu for you, to celebrate with your loved ones at home. Romulo Café and Restaurant has re-opened just in time to make this Valentine’s special. It’s a £60 set dinner menu, with plenty to have for leftovers and they even throw in some wine too.

Romulo is authentic Filipino cuisine, with a reputation as the best in London. When London’s Filipinos are dining there, you know it’s one you have to try. The food is an ancestral legacy of the owners grandparents; Filipino diplomats, UN ambassador and the first Filipino to win the Pulitzer Prize. The food is fuelled with this pride; with recipes evolved from the owner’s grandmother. Romulo has critically acclaimed restaurants across Manila and have brought passion and flavour to Kensington.

Valentines is a great excuse to treat yourself and those around you to a fine dining experience, even if it’s at your own dining table. For mains, the set menu includes tender Grass-Fed Beef Short ribs, mouth-watering Pan-seared Seabass, a large portion of Bihon noodles with chicken and a refreshing green Papaya Pinoy salad. In the Valentine’s spirit, Romulo provides aphrodisiac’s for dessert; with decadent chocolate, chilli and coconut cheesecake.

If those items aren’t for you this Valentine’s, their full takeaway menu is packed with temptation. There’s a new collection of bakery items this month; new Pandesal doughnuts, soft and sweet Ensaymada pastries or stick with a traditional Mamon orange cake. If you want to out-do the standard chocolates on Valentine’s gesture, Romulo’s bakery would be the sweetest treat. Filipino’s believe in starting your day with a belly as full as your heart, so you could opt for their breakfast box. It allows you to try some authentic Filipino breakfast essentials; both sweet and savoury, including a dozen of their Pandesal doughnuts.

The rest of Romulo’s takeaway menu has all their new additions, vegan options, and the all-time favourites. You can order directly from the restaurant, Uber Eats, Deliveroo and Just Eat. For the Valentine’s menu, just be sure to order before 8pm on Sunday.
