Joey arrives at Turo-Turo

Mel and Joey!

Hosts of the popular Filipino Sunday Evening magazine show Mel and Joey, Joey de Leon and Mel Tiangco, and their film crews, paid a visit to Turo-Turo in October 2010 while filming in NZ for their 6th anniversary episode.

The café featured in their show on November 21st (watch the Turo segment here!) and both Joey and Mel chose to eat at Turo-Turo - and by all accounts, loved the food. Joey de Leon had
tapsilog and followed it up with a halo-halo. Mel Tiangco enjoyed the dinuguan.Joey interviews Charie and Rew
The 6th Anniversary show was widely watched on Pinoy TV in the Philippines, and watched online in New Zealand, and had an instant impact on the café's popularity.

A gift of a Turo-Turo T-shirt to Joey de Leon ended up being worn by the host on his daytime entertainment show, Eat Bulaga

Both Joey and Mel were delightful. Despite being very tired from days of travelling, filming, and meeting hundreds of people, they were professional to the core. So were their crew, those who accompanied them to New Zealand, and those who stayed back in the Philippines making all of the arrangements.

Special thanks to the Mel and Joey production team's researcher, JM Solon, who was always so easy to deal with. JM, you are welcomed with open arms to New Zealand any time!
