Taken from the Filipino word for 'delicious', Rapsa puts a Far East bent on Brunch at this Filipino restaurant and bar in Hoxton.
The design is inspired by Bauhaus and the brutalist architecture of the council house it operated as in a past life, though there's a warm ambience to eating here the defies the industrial decor; from cushy banquettes and candlelit tables, everything has been fine-tuned for your comfort.
For an exotic taste of what the Philippines has to offer try 'tocilog', a warming plate of tocino (a native style of bacon typically made from pork belly), garlic fried rice, eggs and sweet but sour atchara papaya pickle, available for just £8. Other Pan-Asian dishes include cured salmon with wasabi yoghurt, Korean croquettes and Daing glazed mackerel, plus a daily house special of kinilaw, a raw seafood dish similar to ceviche.
Pair your meal with freshly squeezed juice, coffee, herbal tea or Brunch cocktails like espresso martini or Bloody Mary, or push the boat out and get bottomless Aperol Spritz, Prosecco or Slushies for £32 (inc. brunch dish).
It's found in the super-trendy area of Hoxton, just across the road from the Rail Station.
