Gordon's hawker challenge
From Italy to Singapore. Gordon arrived in Asia to take on a culinary challenge like no other – a Singaporean Hawker cuisine cook off given to him by SingTel and Singaporean bloggers. The challenge was against their top three hawkers, as voted for by the Singaporean public. First up, Gordon visited the three hawkers to learn the trade and then took part in a public cook off. Huge numbers of fans queued from 1am to watch the cook off and for the chance to be one of the 1000 people able to cast their votes on their favourite dishes. Despite Gordon impressing the tasters with his chilli crab and winning the round, the Singapore versions of laksa and chicken rice topped the bill, meaning the hawkers won the challenge overall. Singapore, this probably won't be the last you've heard from Gordon!
