Claypot Rice

When we were about to reach the hawker centre, my hub asked, 'What if the stall is closed for the day? What if the hawker centre is under renovation?' We both shudder at the thought of it because we came a long way to this place just to savour this delicious claypot rice again.

Much to our relief, the stall was still opened. We 'think too much'. :P

Claypot Rice (8/10)

We both felt that the claypot rice was better the last time we came.

poor thing...apparently, when they wear hat to cook hokkien mee, people just like to queue! hahaha

Food Lover said...

yep yep! Finally found someone who has been to this stall. hahha...

ya lor... but I was wondering if the Hokkien mee was not up to standard because of the late hours or what. Have you queued and tried that before? Was it nice?

Jaime-La-Nourriture said...

it was ORDINARY, but may be especially tasty when u have queued for a long time n by then u prob are too hungry to determine its quality.

Went to the stall on Monday, after reading your fab review. Was a bit dissappointed by the claypot rice. Apparently it is not the authentic version whereby all the ingredients, including the rice is slowly cooked in the claypot using charcoal. The one I had, the rice is precooked using rice cooker. They just put the chicken and the sausage on it. However, I love the soup. It's simple yet very satisfying. The soup has a familiar taste, you know, like the one you had when you were young.

Anonymous, sorry to disappoint. When I went there for the second time (this current post), the standard has already dropped. We decided to give it a try for the third time recently and realised that its standard has dipped even further. But I agree with you that the soup is still as good! Yeah, I understand what you mean about the 'familiar' taste, though I had a different dish in mind. :)
