Our HQ, Rapsa@100 Hoxton, had the honour of hosting ‘Air-Fryer King’ Anthony Nathan who together with eBay created the UK’s first-ever pop-up restaurant exclusively serving dishes made from refurbished air fryers. Well done to Chef Francis and his team for supporting this great initiative with a fantastic menu from the kitchen and the bar!
“I arrived at the ‘AIR’ restaurant, located in London’s oh-so-trendy Hoxton neighbourhood and was welcomed with a glass of prosecco. Oh go on then! As I sat down the culinary wizard himself, Nathan Anthony, known as the “Air Fryer King”, made his charming entrance from the kitchen. With a twinkle in his eye, he explained the mission behind the project. The concept was simple: with the cost of living and energy costs remaining unaffordable for many this winter, the pop-up’s aim was to educate shoppers on the major cost and energy saving to be made through choosing refurbished kitchen and home appliances.” – EuroNews.culture
“As she looked at the food options, she wrote: “The menu was EPIC!” The foodie then tucked in, as she enjoyed a roasted cauliflower salad with coconut yoghurt, lemon, pomegranate and cashew miso dressing. She also tried the nduja-stuffed arancini balls, crispy salt and pepper squid, halloumi fries with a sweet and spicy mayo and miso glazed aubergine. Not only this, but she also had sweetcorn ribs with feta and spicy almond sauce, truffle fries and lamb chops with a mint sauce. The foodie noted: “The wine was delicious too!” – The Sun
We are thrilled to announce that Chef Peter Olšavský, Chef Francis’s right hand man, will be taking the reigns at The Rambling Pig as Head Chef.
Peter, a Slovakian native, is a part of Rapsa’s brick work. He has been apart of executive Chef Francis Puyat’s team since day 1 at Rapsa@100 Hoxton, perfecting the Filipino-Fusion dishes created by Francis.
To our new friends and family in Ewell, we look forward to welcoming you at our new Gastropub to experience the mastery that Peter commands.
Wednesday, July 6th, sees Rapsa Executive Head Chef, Francis Puyat and Rapsa Director, Andrew Zilouf take on the prime time tv challenge with a guest appearance on the first episode of Come Dine with Me, with the pros!
What started out as a very last minute invite, ended up as a lot of fun! As these shows go, the dry cut, British humour is to take the front stage and we expect nothing other than awkward moments and a telling-storyline.
Rapsa is excited with this opportunity to highlight one of Filipino cuisines most iconic dishes…the pork sisig! However this episode rolls out, many more Brits will know what this traditional dish is and the skill, precision and love that it takes to prepare it.
Catch us on Channel 4, July 6th at 5pm BST. For those in Hoxton, join us for a screening inside Rapsa@100 Hoxton!

“We’re a fun new platform, where you can both buy and sell. As a buyer, you can enjoy exciting drops and support passionate, independent producers. As a maker, you can share your food or drink with a new community eager to try new things.”
Introducing our first Delli Drop…
Start the night with a round of Santiago Negronis AND our famous Halloumi fingers, served with a whole jar of our crowd pleasing Banana Ketchup (enough to last you onto next week’s dinner! 😍)
What’s better than the follow on of a steamy hot 1kg Lechon Pork Belly Roast accompanied by atchara pickle and homemade dipping sauces. We recommend a Kamayan style of eating- to eat with your hands, a great way to get the body grooving! 🤠
