The Adobros - a Filipino Supper Club

Why Join the Table?

People often say that the best Filipino food can be found at home, and you won't find finer home-cooked Filipino food in London than when you dine with us, The Adobros. We promise you won't go home hungry, so bust out those stretchy pants and get ready to eat!

The menu is inspired by recipes that we love from our Filipino mother, which we have put our own unique spin on. Never tried Filipino food before? Or longing for a taste of home? Come to one of our supper clubs to try what you’ve been missing!

The venue is our spacious and bright flat in New Cross. The layout is completely open plan so you can watch us cook and plate each dish whilst seated at the communal dining table. We're always on hand to answer any questions or just to have a cheeky chat.

We offer a fun and relax...

House Rules: No high heels please, as we have wooden floors!

In a Nutshell

Two brothers, Mark and Mike, are the “Bros” in The Adobros, a Filipino supper club. The other part, of course, being the national dish of the Philippines: Adobo (one of our favourite dishes).

Just like the regional variations on classic dishes such as adobo, our versions are slightly different from each other. The recipes we learned weren’t based on exact measurements, but on taste, as is typical of Filipino home cooking. It’s fair to say that everyone’s adobo is different, so come try ours!

The Whole Hog

The Mission Statement for The Adobros is to introduce people to the cooking and culture of the Philippines. Food is in our blood. The first thing you will hear when you enter the home of a Filipino is "Kumain ka na?" which means "Have you eaten yet?".

Whenever Filipinos have a gathering, there is guaranteed to be food there. We bond and make new friendships over food and this is the type of culture that we want to present with our supper club. Eat. Drink. Be Merry. Make new friends.

What is Filipino food?

Combining Southeast Asian, Chinese and Hispanic elements into a compellingly unique whole, Filipino cuisine is fascinating and, above all, delicious!

Filipino food can quite rightly be described as the first fusion cuisine in the world – and that’s what makes it so unique and interesting. Nowhere else in the world will you find a dish using Southeast Asian produce, flavoured with Chinese ingredients and given a Spanish name.

Just like the humble adobo, the national dish of the Philippines. A wonderfully characterful dish full of flavour, it combines palm vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, black pepper and other little twists under a Spanish moniker that quite simply translates as ‘marinade’. Adobo is a truly Filipino dish.

Our food is a reflection of our complex and varied history as a trading hub between East and West, but it’s not just that – it is born out of the Filipino desire to share, share and share even more. If you ever do make it out to the Pearl of the Orient, you will find yourself assaulted on every street corner by tasty snacks, and stuffed to the gills at every meal by the heartiest dishes that will just keep coming until you can eat no more.

That is the Filipino food experience. And that is the experience that we, The Adobros, want to share with you.

Adapting the recipes taught to us by our loving mother, we aim to provide the classic Filipino experience: good friends, good times and, most importantly, loads and loads of good food!

So what are you waiting for? Kain na tayo! Let's eat now!

Our second visit to this supper club, and it was a brilliant experience yet again. Delicious food & great hosts!

Really enjoyable evening, lovely flat, good food and lovely hosts.

Mike and Mark are fantastic - delicious adobo chicken wings, kare kare ribs for the main and bibingka for dessert. They also have a gorgeous flat and great taste in music. Company was fantastic too!!

Amazing food! I didn't know what to expect with Filipino food but now I want more. Great space and great crowd made it a very enjoyable evening.

Fantastic evening. Mark and Mike were very welcoming and egaging which meant it really felt like a supper club rather than a restaurant in someone's house. Saying that, the food was to restaurant standard - the pork was incredible. Highly recommend.

Absolutely wonderful food, home and hosts.

We'd been meaning to go for ages - after Saturday's meal we wish we'd been more often! Fantastic food, venue and hosting by Mike and Mark, this was a rare opportunity to sample genuine (and indulgent!) home-cooked Filipino food. Vegans and veggies were also excellently catered for. Thanks so much guys! - Ed & Jhenn

Everything about this supper club was enjoyable, and the mosts are more than happy to prepare vegan options as well. We enjoyed a vegan kare kare made with white fungus and seared aubergine in a rich, aromatic coconut gravy. The caramelised peanuts buried in the sauce were divine. The company was lovely and the space is bright and welcoming. Definitely recommended.

Food was incredible! Great hosts! Will come here again :)

As a first to GrubClub and Filipino food, I was not sure what to expect, but this was an amazing experience! Fantastic food; taste, presentation and all.. And a great night meeting new people. If I am in London again I will definitely try to book again with The Adobros.

Thank you Mike & Mark for a really lovely evening - excellent hosts and really amazing food. (I still can't decide if I loved the wings the best, the 48hr slow cooked beef or the yummy Ube cake). The welcome cocktail was a nice addition too! You guys have a lovely home and we felt really relaxed and met some great people too.

Totally loved the experience. Filipino food brought up to date and the need for stretchy pants. Thanks Adobros, hope to see you again.

Thank you so much Mike & Mark! Alex and I had such a great evening, we were blown away with the standard of your cooking, that peanut sauce (please can I have the recipe!) you're pad was stunning and the other guests were lovely. When's your next one?? Lucie

What a great 1st Adobros experience!! Mike and Mark are fantastic hosts. Filipino was fantastic. Truly enjoyable and we made new friends there too. We will definitely come back :-)

Wonderful tocino and chicken BBQ skewers, pork belly and coconut veg, and buko pie from Mike and Mark! Delicious and prepared with a lot of love and care. Look forward to another future Filipino food fix.

Very nice food - skewers in particular

Fantastic evening! A really fun way to get to know new people and the food was out of this world. We felt at home and could tell a lot of love and care went into creating a great atmosphere and unique, exciting dishes. Highly recommended!

Delicious food, wonderful venue and such a charming welcome by our hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and will be back !

A most enjoyable evening with great food, hosting and company

We really enjoyed our first grub club with the Adobros. They do a modern take on traditional filipino food and prove that filipino food can be presented in an appetizing and stylist way. Great venue, the guys were great and we met some nice people. Highly recommended.

Very good food. Beautiful place. Recommended!

Many thanks for such a great experience. We had an amazing time. Everyone was very cool, and the hosts were very welcoming. The food was incredibly tasty. Very refreshing to try new things. Thoroughly recommended.

Fantastic once again - thank you!

Absolutely fantastic food and service and lovely company to boot. My first experience of Filipino food but hopefully not the last. Amazed that the chefs are self taught. I cannot believe that pork...

Amazing food, awesome hosts.

Amazing food and great hosts! Would recommend to anyone - whether coming alone or with others.

A lovely evening but the main course was slightly disappointing. However, A for effort...just needs a little help with timing the dishes so they're hot and taste their best.

Best meal I have had in a long time!

Where to begin! The food was really spectacular. Although I have eaten a lot of Filipino food in my time, the Adobros were so creative and really put their own spin on some amazing recipes. The evening was exquisitely orchestrated and my husband and I just can't wait for the next event!
