What is Silog and why have we created a whole section for it on our already great, brunch menu? For us…it was a no brainer!

“Well of course, what we have created at Rapsa is a Filipino-Fusion offering celebrating Filipino culture. Filipino culture is focused on family, food, drinks, party and karaoke fun! With an aim to make Filipino cuisine more widely understood in UK households, we want to make Filipino cuisine as much of a catch phrase as “Let’s grab Italian tonight!”

Executive head chef, Francis Puyat. The man brining Filipino flavours to 100 Hoxton.

Seasoned bold flavour profiles, sliced through and rounded off with the famous Kalamansi citrus or a side of Ulam, fresh produce and an encouragement for a ‘Kamayan’ style of eating is the core of Filipino cuisine.

Silog is a type of Filipino breakfast dishes containing sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (fried egg), served with various ulam (sides, and in our case, pickled atchara, cucumber and fresh tomato) and a protein.

Joining the already existing Tocilog (marinated Tocino bacon) and Loncilog (Tocino Sausage), we now welcome the Rib Eye Tapsilog and the Chicksilog. Prepared fully on site, these dishes have been perfected by Francis, the Head Chef himself.

The name of the meat dish determines the name of the dish, so if Chef Francis were a Silog brunch dish (sorry ladies, he is married!) we would have a Franc-silog!

What to expect?

Rib Eye Tapsilog – Scottish Prime Rib Eye 200g, tuyomansi sauce 24

Chicksilog – crispy chicken thigh & drumstick, chef’s infamous crackin’ gravy 12

Lechon Kawali- slow roasted pork belly, chilli vinegar 14

Longcilog – longanisa sausages  12

Tocilog – tocino glazed bacon 12

Accompanying other crowd-pleasing brunch offerings, we now have a heavyweight’s spot of brunch. Saturday and Sunday from 11am into the early afternoon, the tunes match the dishes and trust us, both are delicious and fun!
