You may know them for their delectable steak, but there’s a new kid on the block. Step aside for Hawksmoor’s brand new Filipino Burger, inspired by the vibrant flavours of the Philippines. Hawksmoor Executive Chef, Richard H Turner, spent some time manoeuvring the streets of Manila as part of his eager search for a new dish to sit proudly on his menu. Throughout his travels he discovered lots of local ingredients, some of which were “unfamiliar to European eyes”, and sought inspiration from traditional Filipino dishes.
The new Filipino Burger was inspired by the (unofficial) national dish of the Philippines, Adobo, which is a mighty meaty dish of pork marinated in vinegar, soy sauce and garlic. The newest addition to the Hawksmoor menu will consist of a grilled pork patty topped with Richard’s own version of Adobo, buffalo mozzarella and banana ketchup. Yes, you heard. It will also be served with pork chicharrones (fancy pork crackling) and coconut vinegar.
Because the ingredients are oh-so special, the Filipino Burger is only around for a limited amount of time — so chop chop before we hog them all (sorry, we just can’t help ourselves).
Available NOW until 16th October from Hawksmoor Spitafields Bar (Mon-Fri 5.30-10.30pm, Sat 12-3pm and closed Sundays) and Hawksmoor Seven Dials (Mon-Sat 12-3pm and 5-10.30pm, Sun 12-9.30pm).
