Go Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice was established in 1960 as a food stall specialising in Hainanese chicken rice in the Pratunam district of Bangkok. The brand is apparently well received in the area and in 2019, they were awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand Award in the Bangkok edition of the Michelin Guide. Go Ang Pratunam Vivo City is their second outlet in Singapore. The first Go Ang chicken rice in Singapore was opened in the NEX shopping mall in late 2018.
Like many curious visitors, we managed to find time to take a quick look at the newest wonder in town – Jewel at Changi Airport. Enough has been said about the long queues for the much talked-about restaurants, Shake Shack and A&W. We were more interested to find out more about the restaurants that we are not familiar with. Here is a quick look at the less talked about, but interesting Jewel Changi Airport Restaurants that we would want to try in future visits.
We had the Komyuniti cafe all to ourselves when we visited it recently. It is located in the Yotel Singapore, a hotel just behind Shaw Centre. Very close to Orchard Road and yet hidden from view. If I am a tourist in Singapore, this is the kind of hotel I like – smallish, modern, centrally located but not on the main street. Surrounded by restaurants but has its own quiet restaurant if I decide to dine in. Komyuniti restaurant has a friendly welcoming look from the lift lobby.
Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine 醉宇轩经典潮膳 is a new restaurant by the Jumbo Group. It opened recently in April 2019 at a beautiful two-storey heritage building located in Far East Square. Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine and the more casual Chao Ting next door join Chui Huay Lim Restaurant as the Jumbo Group’s Teochew restaurants in Singapore. We had lunch at Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine.
If the famous Beach Road Prawn Mee is in East Coast Road, it should not be surprising to find the popular Lorong 33 Geylang Claypot Rice in Beach Road. After selling claypot rice in Geylang Lorong 33 for more than 30 years, Geylang Claypot Rice closed its doors last year, leaving many loyal customers disappointed. The good news is that Lor 33 Geylang Claypot Rice has re-opened with a nicer dining environment in Beach Road.
