Our Story

Head Chef Francis Puyat.


Looking back at the creation of RAPSA at 100 Hoxton; Chef Francis Puyat together with the Zilouf family, creators of our reputable 100 Hoxton have created a new addition of what they do best, a progressive ambience to a culinary experience that gets you day-dreaming at your work desk.

The menu is the brainchild of Mediterranean-trained Pinoy chef Francis Puyat, formerly of NOPI, Yotam Ottolenghi’s West-End masterpiece. After the huge success of our Kinilaw&Buko popup in 2018 as an extension of 100 Hoxton, the kinilaw section got a seat on our main menu and the Mediterranean flavours of our a la carte menu received a Pinoy Twist, with a new name. 100 Hoxton was reborn as Rapsa@100 Hoxton.

Chef has brought a little bit of home to Hoxton with delicious menus inspired by the flavours of his homeland in the Philippines that he has brought into a space that celebrates just that; in the trendy heart of Hoxton.

For Rapsa, Francis has set out to create an innovative but accessible menu, designed with a modern twist that makes it perfect for newcomers to try and grow to love the beauty and taste of the best Filipino restaurant in London- mouth-watering in its simplicity and heart-warming in its prices.

Rapsa has since expanded into bringing you Rapsa@Play Archway, a pulutan bar and events space, Rapsa@Play at 104 Hoxton street, a multi-purpose space for weekday co-working and events and Rapsa@Home which is the shop element of Rapsa food kits and drinks packages, launching soon for nationwide delivery.
