After eight days of intensive voting and over 2.5 million votes, local food lovers have chosen Mr Ang Kiam Meng from Jumbo Seafood (319,922 votes), Mdm Foo Kui Lian from Tian Tian Chicken Rice (318,151 votes), and Mr Ryan Koh from 328 Katong Laksa (316,611 votes), as their most popular hawkers.
The top three hawker heros will now prepare for a mouth-watering culinary cook-off against Michelin-starred
heavyweight Gordon Ramsay in the SingTel Hawker Heroes cook-off. On 5 and 6 July, Chef Ramsay will spend time with each of the three hawkers to learn their signature dishes: chicken rice, chilli crab and laksa. He will then put his own unique spin on these dishes at the final showdown event held at Newton Food Centre on Sunday, 7 July.
The event will be open to members of the public, who will be able to sample the dishes prepared by
the local hawkers and Chef Ramsay and vote for their preferred version.
