It was music to the ears of Mr. Lope Pabico to hear a Hygiene and Food Safety Inspector say “You’re the first Filipino to earn this award.”
Indeed, he was the first because many have failed the surprise inspection that Blacktown Council randomly conducts. And why not? Chef Lope Pabico had long years of experience in the immaculate kitchen of 5-Star Manila Garden Hotel in Makati City. It is a skill that he also applies at Pabico Club 55 in Mt. Druitt Road, Mt. Druitt NSW.
