CEOs' Hawker Guide will help preserve heritage

Want to know where some of Singapore's top businessmen eat?

The second edition of the CEOs' Hawker Guide will be released on Thursday in support of the Hawker Master Trainer Pilot Programme.

Backed by The Business Times and real estate giant Knight Frank, the book is the culmination of a hawker food series published in the newspaper from September last year to April.

It is not for sale, though copies will be given to companies and individuals who donate a minimum of $20 to the YMCA's Project Hawkerpreneurs initiative. This will help to equip young people with the skills to become hawkers and start their own businesses.

The guide will be launched at the UBS Business University Asia Pacific Command House, off Bukit Timah Road.

Stalls featured in it were voted for by chief executives in categories including prawn noodles, chicken rice, bak kut teh, satay and roti prata.

Those who submitted their favourites include NTUC FairPrice Co-operative CEO Seah Kian Peng and Professor Tommy Koh, Ambassador-at-Large.

The top stalls have been profiled by The Business Times' food writers in its weekend edition, and compiled in the book.

The Business Times' editor Alvin Tay said: "The CEOs' Hawker Guide celebrates good hawker food, so it is apt the book is being used to raise funds to preserve Singapore's hawker heritage."
