We tried out Bangkok’s famous Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice on our recent trip to Bangkok and here is how we feel it compared to Singapore’s Hainanese Chicken Rice.

When it comes to beverages, the Singapore market is already saturated with a plethora of brands jostling to see who can sell the best cup of bubble tea or coffee. So when we heard that Yomie’s Rice x Yogurt was bringing their highly raved-about yogurt drinks to the Singapore market, we were excited about this refreshing change.
Yomie’s Rice x Yogurt originates from Shanghai and they stand out in the traditional yogurt drink scene by selling yogurt drinks made from purple rice.

Texture-wise aside, these drinks are great for health junkies who want to slurp away at something sweet without feeling the guilt.

They also use complex grains that are high in fibre and great for your digestive system.
