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.”

  2. Huh!? The judging will be a live judging based on dishes served previously and not next to Gordon’s dishes? Seriously!?
    How unbiased is this expected to be!?
    The dishes should be served next to each other for tasting via a blind vote.
    No wonder Singapore is never taken seriously when nothing is managed at a level routinely done internationally.
    If Singapore is proud of their food and culture (and they deserve to be!!), then stand up and do this in the fairest most unbiased manner!
