One thing I observed at the shop here, there are two type of chicken claypot being served. One with dark sauce and another just plain chicken steamed separately. We ordered both to try. The chicken claypot rice that came with dark soy sauce had a very distinctive fragrant smell and you can really smell the caramelisation of the soy sauce and also the burnt rice. It really can seduce you on the spot.

Poached Choy Sum Vegetable

As for the steam chicken claypot rice it is truly distinctive in taste and aroma, a totally make over of a norm claypot chicken. I liked the lightness of the rice and the tenderness of the chicken and the sauce soaked up by the chicken. Cooking process was slightly different, marinated chicken is steamed on a small metal plate inside the claypot itself. I love this claypot and it is accompanied with fried salted fish and calamansi that make the whole rice tasted excitingly. How can one able to resist a delicious fluffy claypot rice.

We also ordered a small plate of poached ‘Choy Sam’ drenched with soy sauce.
