Luzon (CLOSED)

Restaurants, Filipino Bloomsbury

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Please note, Luzon is now closed. Time Out Food & Drink editors, Nov 2015.

There aren't many Filipino restaurants in London, so this new spot, at the Generator Hostel on Tavistock Place, comes as a nice surprise. The only downside? It's a three month pop-up - and only open on Thursdays and Fridays. Best get in quick if you want to try it.

The aim here is to showcase classic Filipino cooking, albeit with more than a few contemporary touches influenced by other cuisines. Expect, then, dishes such as pork tocino, red mullet escabeche, mackerel in a lime-chilli marinade and chicken adobo, here served with chayote - a fruit native to Mexico and belonging to the same family as the squash, melon and cucumber. 

Desserts include a leche flan served with a cashew nut praline and lime sorbet and turon - a sweet of plantain spring rolls with salted caramel cream, plantain purée, pineapple and snapdragon flowers. 

Luzon runs from 6 August to 6 November 2015.

Luzon says
Luzon is a pioneer when it comes to contemporary Filipino cuisine. Just minutes away from major tube stations such as Russell Square, King's Cross and Euston, it is located inside the The Generator Hostel - a venue with award-winning interior design.
