Don’t be fooled by this plate of chicken rice. It may look like chicken rice found at any random hawker stall in Singapore, but this is actually from Bangkok’s famous Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice. Located near Platinum Fashion Mall, the eatery is famous for their long queues that are filled with tourists from Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan and more.

Good news, Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice is slated to open at Nex on 20 October 2018. It will be found at the basement, replacing ThaiExpress that was just beside Koi. The Michelin Bib Gourmand eatery joins the list of Michelin-mentioned eateries that have been arriving one after another in Singapore, including Tsuta and Kam’s Roast. Go-Ang Pratunam’s Singapore outlet is managed by The Minor Food Group Singapore, which is the team behind Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe and ThaiExpress.

In Bangkok, a plate of Go-Ang Pratunam’s chicken rice costs just THB40 (~S$1.68), and comes with poached chicken, cucumber slices and chicken soup. Taste-wise, it’s similar to what we get in Singapore, but with extra fragrant and flavourful rice.

What you must try is their sweet and slightly spicy black sauce that is different from the ones in Singapore. With a base of soy sauce and vinegar, this black sauce enhances the flavour of the otherwise plain chicken.

Aside from chicken rice, they also offer chicken liver and gizzard (THB60/~S$2.52), braised pork (THB60/~S$2.52) and Chinese soups. On top of these, the Singapore outlet will also be serving vegetables, tofu, and fish dishes, as well as desserts.

One thing’s for sure: prices aren’t going to be as friendly here. Judging by the prices at famous international restaurants that opened in Singapore – think Mui Kee and Nipong Naepong – you can probably expect to pay more than double of what you’d part with at the OG stall.

Address: 23 Serangoon Central, #B1-05/06, Nex, Singapore 556083
