Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice – Affordable eats at NEX

[Media Invite]

If you frequent Bangkok often, you might be familiar with Go-Ang Kaomunkai Pratunam, an eatery that specialises in Thai Hainanese chicken rice. The eatery was established all the way back in 1960 and was awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand Awared in the 1st Bangkok edition of the Michelin Guide.

The good news is that Go-Ang has opened its first overseas outlet in Singapore. The Singapore outlet is called Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice and is located in NEX in Serangoon. To ensure that the dishes served in Singapore are authentic, all kitchen staff are trained by Go-Ang founder Mr Sombat Pruekpaiboon at the original restaurant in Bangkok. Go-Ang is managed by The Minor Food Group Singapore, the restaurant group behind Xin Wang Hong Kong Café and ThaiExpress.

I was invited to Go-Ang’s recent launch and had the opportunity to taste quite a number of the dishes available. I’ve never tried the version in Bangkok, so let me compare this version here vs other chicken rice in Singapore that we are more familiar with.

PUTIEN–Not just noodle dishes

When I think of PUTIEN restaurant, I think of its Lor Mee, Heng Hwa Noodles and its Mazu Mee Sua. Those were the dishes I would head for whenever I visited its Vivocity outlet practically a decade ago. Back then, the PUTIEN outlet was located inside the Food Republic foodcourt! How the brand has grown because now they boast 53 outlets all over the world, including 12 in Singapore. And they have also bagged the Michelin One-Star Restaurant Award for 2016, 2018 and 2018.

But PUTIEN offers more than just those noodle dishes I mentioned. They have all the sharing dishes that you would expect when you think of a Chinese restaurant. But of course, if you want to dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant without spending too much, those noodle dishes are only $9.80++. Scroll down to what were my favourite dishes from the PUTIEN media tasting.

Outback Steakhouse is 30 years old! Enjoy up to 30% discount!

Did you know that Outback Steakhouse is 30 years old this year? To celebrate its 30th birthday, Outback Steakhouse will be offering up to 30% discounts when you dine there. Scroll down to the end of the post for details on how to obtain the 30% discount. We checked out Outback Steakhouse’s outlet at Orchard Gateway. I prefer this outlet compared to the previous location at Millenia Walk as it’s much brighter here and the decor is not so dated.

Outback Steakhouse Singapore - Typhoon Boom $15.90

I’ve always liked Outback Steakhouse for its famous Typhoon onion rings. When I was first served the dish more than a decade ago, I was amazed. I still am amazed actually! The humongous portion of onion rings still tastes so good after all these years. Huge crispy piping hot onion rings, not tiny flimsy bits. So good.

[Media Invite]

If you love seafood, especially the seafood-in-a bag kind where all dining etiquette goes out the window and everyone gets stuck in with their hands, you’ll be glad to know that The Boiler has opened a second outlet in town at the Esplanade Mall. This expansion comes with an al-fresco bar in addition to the air-conditioned main dining area. Their original outlet is in Tai Seng, and this is in fact their 4th year of operations.

The Boiler takes pride in its sauces to set it apart from similar seafood boil concepts. The seafood boil concept is Louisiana-inspired, but The Boiler has developed seasonal sauces with local twists, such as sambal and laksa which customers may choose to have with their seafood.
