Bong Bong's Manila KanteenWinners of My Million Pound Menu with BBQ Dreamz, their Filipino street food truck, Lee Johnson and Sinead Campbell opened their first permanent restaurant in the same year. At Bong Bong's in Bethnal Green, the duo brings together a host of Filipino favourites in a buzzing, vibrant space, with South Asian cocktails and beers, as well as a weekly Sunday kamayan, a traditional communal feast where banana leaves line the tables. Classics like satay duck heart skewers, cooked over charcoal and topped with chicharron, and Lechon Kawali, a crispy chunk of pork belly, are offered on rotation with new additions. Adobo chicken, one such example, is poached in a traditional soy sauce, garlic and bay stew before being crumbed and fried, and served with a banana ketchup. Sugar cane rum is used in the cocktails while San Miguel beer is on tap. Split into a dining room and outdoor terrace, the restaurant is decorated with upcycled materials. Tropical flora, colourful lamps and bamboo candlesticks will remind you of the Filipino restaurants which inspired Bong Bong's.
