THE CHEF WITH A MISSION Chef Rex has made it his mission to pioneer and popularise Filipino cuisine in the UK since 2014. He established his following, by running a series of successful popup restaurants to show case his interpretation of Filipino cuisine. ​ In 2016, the British born Filipino chef, embarked on a 3 month culinary research expedition to the Philippines to gain an insight into the many regional specialties that the Philippines has to offer and to share that knowledge back home in the UK. ​ The ambitious chef and aspiring entrepreneur now continues to popularise the cuisine through his cooking channel as seen on Youtube and most recently, through his street food business; 'TURO TURO' which specializes in Filipino barbecue and street food. Chef Rex also competed in the 'British Street Food Awards' in 2019, winning the title of "Southern Champion" in the regional heats and then competing in the National Finals to win 'Best Vegetarian Dish' in the UK.

Turo Turo provides a great introduction to Filipino food, the next big thing in the culinary world. Chef Rex’s chicken inasal is delicious. Tocino, a pork dish, may be a new flavour to UK palates, but once you’ve tried it once, you will keep going back for more

Turo Turo's lechon pork belly and palabok tastes authentically Filipino. Their sushi is also a must-try. Great service by chef Rex.
