Bong Bongs Filipino feast at home

Bong Bongs delivers Filipino cuisine to homes across the UK with their signature Lechon Kawali pork along with an array of traditional Filipino sides and dessert.

Filipino cuisine has evolved over many centuries from their Austronesian origins to a mixed cuisine of American, Chinese, Indian, Spanish and influences, that had enriched the cultures of the archipelago. Dishes range from simple, fried salted fish, chicken curry, paellas and pork.

Bong Bongs sell produce Lechon pork which is a dish which is enjoyed over several regions of the world, most specifically in Spain. Lechon means roasted baby pig (piglet). Lechon is Cuba’s, Puerto Rico’s, and Spain’s national dish. Additionally, it is popular in the Philippines and other Austronesian region. The dish is made from using a whole roasted suckling pig which is cooked over charcoal and rubbed with an array of herbs and spices.

Thanks to Bong Bongs enjoying Lechon pork and other traditional Filipino dishes at home has been made easy to cook and enjoy at home in which I had the pleasure in trying out my self courtesy of Bong Bongs.

Founders Lee & Sinead wanted to bring Filipino food to London with the taste of their Lechon Kawali pork and Filipino delights.

Expanding over the years they have popped up within several other markets across London and festivals. In 2019 they finally achieved their dream and opened up a permanent restaurant within Hackney, London.

The Lucky Club enjoy a Bao Bun home kit at home

Still stuck at home due to the pandemic and with government restrictions not allowing restaurants to open their doors, cooking at home is becoming a little boring cooking the same dishes, over and over, week in week out. Thanks to The Lucky Club they are now open for home delivery delivering their Bao Bun Home Kits across the UK.

Breakfast and lunchtime for me is the worst time of the day when it comes to cooking as I can’t eat the usual popular things such as cereals, eggs, and sandwiches so I tend to skip breakfast. However The Lucky Club at home now has made this dilemma of mine easier with their Boozy Bao Brunch. It comes with so many different fillings, meat, fish, tofu, vegetables, herbs and sauces.

I was gifted their Boozy Bao Brunch on a courtesy basis to try at home.

At present they are closed due to the pandemic however thanks to their at home service everyone can still enjoy their Boozy Bao Brunch at home.
