Sarap | Excellent Filipino food in Brixton
The Phillipines consists of 7,641 islands scattered across the Western Pacific Ocean.
And they’re about to add another one.
In Brixton Village.
It’ll be there for at least six months, and it comes courtesy of chef Budgie Montoya, whose many residencies under the Sarap banner across the capital over the past couple of years have impressed a great many people. Evening Standard Magazine restaurant critic Jimi Famurewa described it as “intensely pleasurable”, and hell, this residency itself is the result of wining a Brixton Kitchen competition thanks to their amazing food.
When it does cut the ribbon at the end of this month you can expect all the classics Sarap have become known for. The slow-roasted Lechon Liempo pork belly, made with rolled & stuffed with lemongrass, ginger, garlic, chilli, coconut vinegar and soy sauce is the standout. It’s got a glassy, brittle crackling the likes of which you’ve never had before.
The plan is to turn this short-term resident into a permanent venue, should it be as successful as they know they can be.
And that’s Sarap.
NOTE: Sarap is due to open on soft launch from 24th-26th January, with 50% off the food bill. You can find out more at their website right HERE.
