My favourite go to place for claypot chicken rice. I always love my claypot chicken rice to be cook in a claypot over charcoal fire, however a lot of places had moved on with the convenient of gas or even just putting the cooked rice to claypot.

At this little stall, the owner still stand infront of the rows of claypot and taking care of every pot of rice that cook over the charcoal fire. You'll need to patiently wait for your rice to cook.

The tender and juicy chicken piece, Chinese lapcheong, salted fish, soy sauce that mixed together with the perfectly cooked rice it's so simple yet delicious. Do allow a few minutes for the moisture to evaporate if you prefer a drier version of rice.

A claypot chicken rice for 2 with extra chicken, a plate of mixed veg and two glass of hot tea at rm33.

This was sadly a pretty disappointing dish, as the fried chicken was served lukewarm. But that aside, I actually found the rice ultra fragrant of coconut milk and rather enjoyable with the zesty achar and sweet-spicy sambal. Would still recommend the prawn noodles over this, if you decide to dine at Bansan for local eats in a dressed up locale.


The menu at Bansan Bistro seems to skew towards Penang flavours, as we deduced from this prawn mee that’s named Hokkien Mee.

Broth’s sufficiently flavoured, with the prawn’s sweetness in play with heat from that dollop of saltish sambal. While definitely on the pricey side, the bowl of noodles is generously portioned and comes with about four sizeable and very tender pork ribs.


Probably not as tantalising as their Signature Roast Duck but this plate of barbecue pork does bring out some attention. Nicely glaze pork serve with additional glaze sauce. RM24.80 per serving.


Nicely glazed and BBQ-ed to perfection this baby is just uhmayzingggg. Best of all it doesn’t cost a bomb and the portion was pretty generous. (Picture doesn’t best depict the portion of the Char Siu as we ordered them separately).

Avg price: RM10
*non halal


Bansan Bistro brings Penang favourites to KL city and this bowl of prawn mee is pretty legit. The broth has the lovely prawn stock taste and that sambal (don’t add too much!) adds nice layer of spiciness. It must be the braised pork ribs in the dish that contribute to the steep price, but hey, if you’re at Bangsar South, this wont disappoint.
