Gourmet on a budget: MasterChef Singapore winner launches Japanese stall in Singapore Poly

Just last May, Derek Cheong, the winner of Masterchef Singapore season two, opened a franchise hawker stall at Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre selling pizza. 

In under a year, the tenacious young man is already working on his new venture — a stall at Singapore Polytechnic called Tamagood. 

Derek, 26, first told the public about his new brainchild in a video on his Instagram page on Feb 15.

It’s a modern Japanese fusion concept that specialises in rice bowls and baked rice, which are enhanced with Derek’s signature onsen egg sauce. 

“In Japanese, we call eggs ‘tamago’. And then, I wanted to name the stall Tamagood because I want my eggs to be good,” explained Derek. 

He shared that his onsen tamago sauce comes in three flavours and is meant to accompany his rice bowls.
