Ask any Singaporean living overseas what Singapore food they miss and we can bet with you that the majority of them would say chicken rice. Chicken rice holds a special place in many of our hearts and it is no mystery why this simple yet flavourful dish has always been a crowd favourite.
We aren’t the only place in the world that has chicken rice though; Bangkok has its own rendition of the dish and while they both may look pretty similar, they do have their differences too.
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.
It is nearly the most wonderful time of the year again! With the holiday season quickly approaching, many of us are currently in the midst of shortlisting candidates to hold our celebratory feasts at. Festive buffets are a dime in a dozen, and the decision process of picking the perfect place can be a tedious one. For those who are still ambivalent, let us help you: why not usher in the year-end festivities with a merry feast at Ginger for an enthralling mix of local and international fare?
What sets Ginger apart is more than the meticulous care shown in the food served. Comfortable in plating up dishes that require a variety of cooking techniques, the buffet line features a wide assortment of local and international favourites, each prepared using only the finest ingredients. Better yet, this year’s feast features a ‘no pork, no lard’ menu for a more inclusive celebratory experience. With a team of passionate and skilful chefs at its helm, diners can expect nothing short of excellence when it comes to the quality of food.
This holiday season, you can enjoy a five-hour-long brunch from 12pm to 5pm on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, during which you can bask in the holiday cheer as you enjoy the following extensive buffet spread: a variety of seafood on ice, an assortment of cheeses, carvings, fresh grills, a live noodle station, and an absurd amount of succulent crabs. Whether you are looking to pamper yourself or share these enticing treats with your friends and family, Ginger’s specially designed Festive Buffet is a flavour experience not to be missed!

October is a great month for ramen lovers! Not only do we have the legendary Ichiran Ramen’s pop-up stall and an abundance of other famed ramen booths setting up shop at Takashimaya’s Japan Food Matsuri, there is also the new “Ichiran-inspired” Gangsta Ramen at Tanjong Pagar Plaza.
What sets Gangsta Ramen apart from the usual ramen restaurants in Singapore is that they are the first place in Singapore to emulate Ichiran Ramen’s private ramen dining concept! Their prices are also NETT, with no GST or service charge.
The relatable and adorable lazy egg Gudetama Cafe in Singapore is closing on 17 November 2019, since it first opened to much fanfare on 30 November 2016.
While Bangkok is well-known for its shopping and food scene, it also boasts an incredibly rich and unique history. If you want to immerse yourself in Bangkok’s beautiful culture but you don’t know where to start, one of the places that you need to add to your Bangkok itinerary is the Grand Palace.
Located in the old city of Bangkok on the banks of the famous Chao Phraya river, this majestic, sacred landmark is nothing short of breathtaking. We recommend that you visit this along with other famous sites such as Wat Arun and Wat Pho, which are all a short distance from each other.
Coffee shops and cafes are truly abundant in Singapore these days and new ones pop up so often too! Newly opened at the Loft @ Nathan, Grace Espresso specialises in some impeccable latte art alongside some yummy brunch foods!
If you’re craving some good nosh at a cosy cafe, Grace Espresso might just be your new favourite haunt. It’s definitely one of the hidden coffee shops you have to hunt down due to the location, but it might just be well worth your while.
Walking down Orchard Road, there are plenty of famous malls that line the streets but one of the lesser-known ones is TripleOne Somerset even though it’s right outside the MRT Station. Recently renovated, this mall now has several attractive food options – from lunch to coffee and pastries.
One cafe, in particular, could be your new favourite cafe in town – Glyph Supply Co. It’s a minimalist’s dream, decked in white walls and simple decor. They serve up some delicious coffee and pastries so you could spend your entire morning sipping away watching as bustling crowds pass by the roads of Orchard Road.
