Come join The Adobros and celebrate the 124th anniversary of the Philippines' declaration of independence from Spain!
This Sunday 12th June, we will be taking over the kitchens at Pamela in Dalston in order to bring you a veritable lunchtime FEAST. Drawing upon the Cebuano heritage of Mark's wife, we will be serving up a HIKAY (Cebuano for 'prepare a feast') that showcases some of our most favourite dishes from the island of Cebu.
With Don Papa Rum cocktails available from the bar, and a multi-course feast on the table, we feel that this event will capture the best of the Filipino food culture we grew up with: the warm welcome, the social sharing, the festive feasting and, of course, the distinctively delicious flavours of our take on Filipino classics.
