This isn’t the first time Dedet dela Fuente’s stuffed lechon has traveled. New Yorkers got a taste of her prized pork when she hosted a sold out degustation at Purple Yam last year. In early March, she held a one-night only charity dinner in Singapore.

Well, she’s back in the Lion City where many more people will get to taste what Filipinos have been raving about all these years. Dedet is joining The World Street Food Congress set at the Tan Quee Lan Street from April 8-12.
The four-day event doesn’t only encourage dialogue among key players in the food industry, but also get to sample a myriad of street food from different participating countries. 

The Philippines is very well represented thanks to Dedet, whom industry insiders fondly call the Lechon Diva, and the James Beard awardee and current F&B Report cover boy, Paul Qui. Dedet will be serving her roasted truffle paella lechon to guests, while Paul will be serving his kinilaw and chicken inasal tacos.​

This early on, we congratulate and thank both Filipino food ambassadors for spreading awareness about our cuisine.​
