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 and former sibling Ziloufs, have created a el trendo new addition of what they do best..creating 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 and after the success of the pop-up Kinilaw&Buko as an extension of 100 Hoxton, the kinilaw section got a seat on the main menu and the Mediterranean flavours on the a la carte got a Pinoy Twist and a new name on the front door.. 100 Hoxton received the new first name RAPSA.

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 brings 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.
