Thailand’s Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice Vs Singapore's Hainanese Chicken Rice — Which Is Better?
Bangkok's Michelin Bib Gourmand chicken rice has opened at Nex. We do a taste test.
Let’s admit it: Singaporeans are snobs when it comes to Hainanese chicken rice. Because our hawkers have made an art out of perfecting their recipes, and just about every self-respecting chicken rice seller has a USP — be it exclusively sourced chicken, house-made chilli sauce, one-of-a-kind herbal soup or even just free-flow rice. Why would we care for an import from Bangkok? Not because it has a Bib Gourmand mention — our very own Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice boasts that. But because it is pretty good, and boasts a refreshing Thai twist. Bangkok's award-winning Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice opened its doors at Nex mall on 20 October, and we headed down to see what the fuss was about.
