Vote for your favourite hawker stalls

Institute of Technical Education student Phaem Ko, 17, yesterday cast her vote for her favourite local hawker stall - her mother's.

Ms Khanthong Nantasuk, 49, runs a Chinese herbal soup stall at the Golden Mile Food Centre.

The food centre was where the 11th season of the City Hawker Food Hunt was launched yesterday.

Singaporeans are encouraged to vote for their favourite local hawker stalls in three new categories - Local Food, Value-for-Money and Healthier Choice.

The top 10 stalls to receive the most number of nominations in each category will receive the People's Choice Hawker Stall award, and the top two stalls will be added to the People's Choice Hall of Fame and receive $1,000.

Although people can nominate a stall only once in each category, they can nominate multiple stalls per category. Each nomination stands a chance to win a weekend hotel staycation for two at Park Regis Singapore.

In previous years, the categories were based on different types of dishes.

The City Hawker Food Hunt is organised by City Gas and Shin Min Daily News, with the support of the National Environment Agency, Health Promotion Board and Singapore Tourism Board.

Guest of honour Denise Phua, Mayor of Central Singapore Community Development Council and Jalan Besar GRC MP, submitted a nomination at the launch.

Members of the public can submit their nominations at www.cityhawkerfoodhunt.com
