This is our entry for Jamie Oliver’s Search for a Food Tube Star with Uncle Ben’s competition. If you’re a Singaporean, there’s NO CHANCE that you wouldn’t know our iconic dish – Chicken Rice.
We all know that Gordon Ramsay came to Singapore a couple weeks back to compete with our local hawkers, and this dish being one of the competing dishes, became our inspiration to pay tribute to the man himself. ????
With all the days of research done on the ultimate chicken rice, this is our tribute, done THE F WORD STYLE, to Gordon Ramsay. Enjoy
