Popularising Filipino Cuisine in London, one dish at a time. Creating comfort in the curiosity of the unknown.
Turo Turo is a concept that was founded by Chef Rex Cortez De Guzman and was established in August, 2018. He is on a mission to popularise filipino cuisine to the mainstream; by focusing on one dish at a time so that London can come to learn the names and flavours of the Philippine’s most iconic dishes such as Chicken Inasal the signature dish of Turo Turo.
The name Turo Turo pronounced /“Tu-ru Tu-ro"/ literally meaning “point point” in Tagalog, is a general name to describe fast food stalls or diners in the Philippines where customers would point at any food on display that they would like to be served. ‘Turu Turo’ restaurants in the Philippines are typically fast food restaurants that serve a selection of dishes to customers in quick succession. They are popular with office workers on their lunch breaks.
Strength, power, efficiency, perseverance and most of all, hard work are just some of the values that we hold dear. These values are symbolised in the Carabao (Filipino Water Buffalo) and is our Icon of choice as it represents the Filipinos hard working nature.
