The Whole Hog

Chef Rex aims to share the flavors of the Philippines along with modern presentation, new ideas and refined cooking. This is a great chance for anyone who has not had Filipino food before, to enjoy it amongst other friendly diners. For those who already enjoy typical Filipino cooking, we believe this will take your experience to a new gastronomical level. We'd like to make Filipino food more popular and accessible within London and the UK.

Filipino cuisine is considered a melting pot of different cuisines due to its rich history of colonization and trade from the far reaches of India, Spain, Mexico, and America to the archipelagos surrounding neighbors such as China, Malaysia and Indonesia. This giant mix of cultures, and ingredients is what makes the Philippines and its cuisine fascinating.

Chef Rex and his team strive to deliver the best hospitality and food possible. We pride ourselves on being consistent to a high standard and our goal is to always ensure that you have an enjoyable dining experience and an unforgettable impression on Filipino Cuisine and its potential.
