'Turo Turo' was established in August, 2018. It was founded by Rex De Guzman, a chef and aspiring entrepreneur. It has been his mission to popularise Filipino cuisine in the UK since 2014 and has done this by running numerous successful popup restaurants and catering for events serving high quality, modern Filipino food. This eventually built up the chef's courage to start his own street food venture and thus, 'Turo Turo' was born.
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.
