World Street Food Congress 2013, Singapore
When the first annual World Street Food Congress decided to recruit one of the best street food carts in the galaxy, they enlisted council member Bryant Ng of L.A.'s Spice Table to make it happen, so I got the call. The Singapore based Makansutra organization is going to be featuring Sabina Bandera and her daughter Mariana Oviedo at the congress, which is designed to promote the most inspired cuisine on the planet--street food.
I'm being sponsored by the congress for bringing Ensenada's La Guerrerense to Singapore, where I will also participate in a live interview in front of a studio audience with Chef Bryant Ng.

World Street Food Congress council members, Anthony Bourdain(L), and James Oseland(Center)
The congress will function as a think tank of the leading street food industry leaders and champions of ambulatory dining like CNN's Anthony Bourdain, and Saveur Magazine's James Oseland. Street food is the most common experience shared by the largest group of people on the planet--the lower classes.
Some of the issues to be tackled at the WSFG will be how to educate more vendors about food safety practices, and how to encourage small businesses in the arena of street food entrepreneurship.
If you can make it out to Singapore, you'll be able to catch me at the hawker stalls, and at La Guerrerense's booth where they will be introducing Singaporeans to Ensenada style street gourmet. See you in Singapore!
