Don Papa Rum's Casa Sugarlandia Filipino Pop-up in Shoreditch

Don Papa Rum is opening a 3 week Filipino pop-up at 46 Great Eastern Street on 22nd May 2019, featuring lots of rum, lots of cocktails, food from Filipino chefs Sarap, The Adobros, and Food with Mae, and even Karaoke nights.  There will also be two ticketed supper clubs - Food with Mae on Tues 28th May, and The Adobros on Weds 5th June.  This is going to be excellent!

"Casa Sugarlandia runs from 22nd May to 8th June, taking over a two-storey venue on Shoreditch’s Great Eastern Street, revamped as a fully set-designed space, offering Londoners a spectacular taste of the island of Sugarlandia in the Philippines via some of its customs, flavours and flora.  
Inspired by the real Filipino island of Negros, known locally as “Sugarlandia”, guests are encouraged to venture into a multi-sensory world where all is not as it seems.  Programme highlights include “Masked Karaoke”, hosted by international drag collective Sink The Pink, dining experiences from some of the capital’s leading names in Filipino cuisine and a bespoke menu of Don Papa house cocktails.
While the programme changes weekly, there are some mainstays, and those with a penchant for Karaoke will be able to jump on the microphone, Filipino-style each week.  Invented in the Philippines in 1973, Karaoke comes to the Casa on Thursdays, kicking off on Thursday 23rd May with the queens of Sink the Pink hosting proceedings. For those on the shy side or simply hoping to coax out their alter egos, there’s also the option to don a mask to spare their blushes and truly let loose. This isn’t your regular sing along, but Masked Karaoke, Sugarlandia style.
The in-house menu comes courtesy of a rolling roster of three chef teams each presenting their take on the flavour of the Philippines. Nicknamed “Asia’s last secret cuisine”, Filipino food upholds rich flavours and displays a wide range of culinary techniques emanating from the 7,000 islands that make up the Philippines. BBQ chefs SARAP line up alongside London supper club chefs Mae Williams and The Adobros.
There will also be two, ticketed supper club experiences at Casa Sugarlandia. Mae Williams brings her authentic flavours for a five-course menu (28th May) whilst The Adobros present their distinct culinary classics (4th June). Both menus will include a complimentary Don Papa cocktail and the rum as an ingredient in a selection of dishes.
On another night, concoctions will be served with exquisitely edible sugar-spun garnishes designed by the artist Fernando La Posse showcasing the provenance of the unique Filipino sugar used to make Don Papa."
