Miss Universe Philippines Rabiya Mateo and her team were welcomed with Pinoy hospitality and Filipino food from Lutong Bahay Filipino Cuisine when the group arrived in Florida to campaign for the beauty pageant crown.

The Miss Universe Philippines organization thanked the Filipino restaurant for giving the pageant team “a taste of home” as it posted a photo of the meal delivery of Filipino dishes that included Lechon kawali, sinigang na hipon, pork barbecue, Filipino-style fried chicken, and turon.
