Chef Rob Menor: papa urb's grill, stockton, california

Chef Rob is executive chef at Papa Urb’s Grill in his hometown of Stockton, California. A frequent collaborator of Filipino Kitchen, Chef Rob spent a decade cutting his teeth in Chicago. “Nothing has been more constant, loving, and tolerating of me than my family, friends, and Filipino food,” he says. “Watching non Filipino/as and new generations of Filipino/as loving our food, learning our techniques and seeing the traditions pass on keeps me alive and moving forward both as a lifetime student and new manong coming of age in the community. This food is what I preserve and pass on to the next.”
