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 no secret that Bangkok is a food and shopping paradise that is full of dirt-cheap deals, and we always make it a point to come here at least once a year to get our fill on affordable food, shopping and massages.
For those of you who are visiting Bangkok for the first time and you need some ideas for your itinerary, we recommend you pay the Pratunam area a visit. The place is chock full of endless shopping, food and even more shopping and once you’re done with all that, you can give your body a break by heading over to one of the many massage parlours that are scattered around the area.
If you want to visit Pratunam but you are absolutely clueless about what you should do there, here’s our guide to give you some ideas.

Move aside all other lunch plans you have because Bangkok’s Michelin Bib Gourmand recipient Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice is set to open in Singapore on 20 October 2018.
With it might be a bit mind-boggling why anyone would queue for so long for a dish easily found anywhere else, a devoted fan base of locals and visitors alike would tell you otherwise.
