Rapsa @100Hoxton

After 6 beautiful years as 100 Hoxton we have decided to freshen things up with a new brand Rapsa – “delicious” in Filipino. We have taken all the best bits of our sumptuous Pinoy pop up Kinilaw & Buko, including our delicious homemade ice cream and Filipino-style ceviche. We have kept a couple old 100 Hoxton favourites and then added a whole delicious array of Filipino-inspired fusion dishes.

Be prepared to be blown away by our Ukoy Shrimp Fritter, revel in our delicious Soft Shell Crab in Aligi Brown Crab Sauce and delight in our Lamb Shank Kaldereta with kalamansi lime skordalia & Asian veg.

The ambience is laid-back, the drinks are smooth…and yes we have great gluten-free & vegan options but please ask our staff if you have particular dietary requirements.

Kinilaw is a type of Filipino ceviche that uses vinegar to cure a delicious array of ingredients.

What better way to round of a healthy vibrant delicious meal than by tucking into some heavenly ice cream. The menu is again inspired by filipino flavours. All ice creams have their own unique toppings. Served in polished coconut shells.

Executive Chef – Francis Puyat

Originally from Mindoro in the Philippines, Francis “Ace” Puyat came to London with his parents in 1997 and immediately set about taking on the London culinary establishment.

Initially trained in classical French styles of cooking, his first role was as an events chef for the Absolute Taste group and various positions in their restaurant properties. Picked up by Yotam Ottolenghi’s NOPI in 2011, Francis has flourished and developed his great love of Eastern spices and Indian, Asian and Middle Eastern cooking. Francis has designed a menu that puts flavour – both complex and bold – at the centre of everything.

Kirill

A little shout out to Kirill, who took time off from being Berlin and Reebok’s on call impressario illustrator, to design Chef Francis’ tattoo. He then came down specially to ink the tattoo on chef’s arm in the venue before we opened. It came out so beautifully we used the octopus for our logo as well.
