    Hi!

    My husband and I are planning to move to the UK together. He is a British Citizen and I am Filipino. We are planning to move to London/ Kent. Are there any Filipino restaurants or anything that reminds you of home around these areas?

    I've told my husband time and time again that I will miss eating Filipino food sooooo much when we leave. (Like when we went to Australia for 3 months, I got super home sick in terms of the food hahahaha)

    So if anyone can please help me find places and/or restaurants or what where I can feel like I'm back in the Philippines, that would be great!

    Hi and welcome.:welcome:

    In London there are some Filipino restaurants, mainly around Earl's Court tube station area, with a few asian food shops nearby.
    But nothing really special, apart from the exorbitant prices for below average food...
    Theer is one in Kensington High Street that I was considering visiting, last year, but a look at the price list, quickly convinced me to avoid...
    As I will be around there again in a few weeks time, I will gladly give it a miss again, if it hasn't gone out of business already...:D

    My wife and her friends, meet up at least once a week in someone house for a serious food and chika-chika party, obviously with some chismis thrown in for good measure...:eek:
    The recently arrived "dangitt" and dried squid, will be cooked off one of those days, in someone else's house, as a blessing for the new wallpaper....... ;)

    I've tried a couple of the pinoy restaurants at the earl's court tube area but it wast that great. Maybe the expectation was too high.

    You'd have to learn to cook pinoy food since majority of the ingredients can be purchased/modified to your own tastes.

    The restauants in Earls Court are skanky and horrible.

    Josephine's in Charlotte St is much better.

    You can cook Filipino food here. Just buy the ingredients. My wife often does.

    ...as earlier members have posted, there's a couple in Earl's Court (Kenway Road). Lutong Pinoy & Kamayan sa Earl's Court.
    Neither does much for me, but Mrs BBJ and friends seem to like the buffet.... or was it the halo halo ?

    As mentioned, Josephine's is the better option (in my opinion).

    There's also East Street Restaurant in Rathbone Place that has some Filipino dishes on their menu.

    Kent ? ......... as far as I'm aware, there's no Filipino eating places in the whole county. at least none that I've come across.

    Hi Januaryprinces, i just took my wife Kimberly (filipino) to Josephines for her birthday and she really enjoyed it. For home cooking to get the right ingriedients we use Manila Supermarket and or Pinoy Supermarket in Earls court. It is expensive compared to Philippine prices but the items have come along way.

    We were in Josephine's recently. Apparently the owners plan to sell up and close in two years time and return to The Philippines.
