Whoever first thought to savoury up one of our all-time favourite childhood treats is a hero in our eyes. And Fatt Pundit don’t disappoint with theirs. Pop by for an array of Indo-Chinese delights at the festival, plus as many momos as your body can handle. No regrets.

Time for a beer pitstop at People’s Captain, a British craft beer company with a difference.

Get your lechón on at Sarap BAon
Nothing beats the smells and tastes of the BBQs drifting over Regent’s Park every summer. It’s enough to give us chills when we throw open the doors to all you Tasters at the start of each festival. This year, we’re so pumped to get our hands on Sarap BAon’s iconic Filipino BBQ and are contemplating setting up permanent residence by the side of their restaurant. For the uninitiated, lechón is one of the signature dishes of the Philipinnes and consists of slow-roast suckling pig over the BBQ. Knew you’d agree.
