Go Ang Pratunam VivoCity – Michelin Bib Gourmand Chicken Rice from Bangkok

Go Ang Pratunam VivoCity

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.

Komyuniti Yotel Hotel Singapore – hidden cafe in the heart of Orchard Road


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.

The good news is that Lor 33 Geylang Claypot Rice has re-opened with a nicer dining environment in Beach Road.
