In each dish category, Tian Tian Chicken Rice won by 6 per cent, 328 Katong Laksa by 19 per cent and Chef Ramsay’s version of Chilli Crab triumphed by 5 per cent.
 Congrats to Singapore's Hawker Heroes!!!
How do participating Chefs feels about the Challenge?
Chef Ramsay said: “It’s been phenomenal to see how passionate the people of Singapore are about their hawker fare. The hawkers have impressed me with their ability to whip-up dishes with such amazing flavours. Now that I’ve experienced the best of Singapore cuisine, I can say without doubt the people of Singapore have much to be proud of - authentic, genuine, simple food, that is of amazing quality and full of flavour.”
Mdm Foo Kui Lian, Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, said: “I enjoyed teaching Chef Ramsay the art of making chicken rice. Although his version was very unique, it was still very appetising. The SingTel Hawker Heroes challenge was a wonderful celebration of the good food we have here in Singapore.”
Mr Ang Kiam Meng, Jumbo Seafood Restaurant, said: “The contest was a great way to recognise the skills and talent of our local hawkers. Chilli crab is an iconic Singapore dish that takes many years to master and we are glad that it was featured in the contest. We are confident that the people of Singapore will continue to support our hawkers and keep our unique food culture alive.”
Mr Ryan Koh, 328 Katong Laksa, said: “We are grateful to our friends, family and supporters for voting for us, and to SingTel for giving us this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to challenge a world famous chef like Gordon Ramsay. It was a truly amazing experience!”

About SingTel Hawker Heroes challenge
The challenge is in response to recent concerns of a decline in local hawker culture and whether international recognition, such as Michelin-starred accreditation, would encourage fresh talent to join the trade and preserve Singapore’s hawker heritage. There has also been much debate on whether Singapore hawkers have the necessary qualities to take on Michelin-starred chefs like Gordon Ramsay.

Profile of Top 3 SingTel Hawker Heroes
* Mr Ang Kiam Meng. Jumbo Seafood Restaurant
If you’re a fan of crab, there’s a good chance you have spent an evening digging into Mr Ang Kiam Meng’s exquisite creations at Jumbo Seafood. His intensely flavourful chilli crab has helped take Jumbo from a humble local eatery in East Coast Park to one of our country’s most loved seafood chains.

* Mdm Foo Kui Lian, Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice
Ask Singaporeans where you can find the country’s best chicken rice and you can bet Tian Tian is going to come up quite a bit. No surprise when you consider that Madam Foo Kui Lian has been perfecting her dish since 1986.

* Mr Ryan Koh, 328 Katong Laksa
Intensely flavourful and wonderfully satisfying, Katong Laksa takes laksa lovers to a whole new level. All thanks to the skills of Mr Ryan Koh who obsesses over every ingredient that goes into his dish.
