Singtel’s Hawker Heroes vs Gordon Ramsay

Singapore has voted the top 3 hawkers to take on Gordon Ramsay and the dishes that will be in the competition are Chilli Crab from Jumbo, Chicken Rice from Tian Tian and Laksa from 328 Katong Laksa in the order of votes. Gordon Ramsay, who is a Michelin-starred chef will face off with our three top hawkers this Sunday at Newton Food Centre. I have no doubts that our hawkers will stand up to this Michelin-starred chef in culinary skills.
Actually, I would have wished Ramsay take on a Chwee Kwee auntie of a stall somewhere in the East. The Chwee Kwee is really so soft and nice that I think Ramsay may have a challenge to outperform the taste. Anyway, the Chwee Kwee aunty is not shortlisted. I am thinking of going down with a packet of this Chwee Kwee to Newton Food centre and give them to Gordon Ramsay to have a taste. I wonder how this chef, reportedly worth at least SGD$62 million will have to say. This Singtel’s Hawker Heroes event as of now is not getting the attention of Singaporeans, are we Singaporeans still proud of our food?
