Its relocation from Toa Payoh to Clementi means Westies are that much closer to this dark brown, glossy claypot of bubbling goodness. The Claypot Mee Tai Mak (from $5) may not be the prettiest of dishes, but it's darn tasty and most comforting on a cool, rainy day. The plump "rat tail" noodles are bathed in the thick and flavourful gravy studded with chopped vegetables, minced meat, prawns and a cracked egg. Be sure to add some chilli padi for a kick! As its name suggests, this place also does a mean traditional Fish Head Steamboat (from $23 for a small portion) — the perfect dish to share with your group. Otherwise, other zi char options like the Salted Egg Pork Ribs ($10) and the Boss Bee Hoon (get the small $15 portion to share between two to three) fare well. Pro tip: Call to reserve a table and pre-order dishes so you can dig in the moment you arrive!
Avg Price: $15 per person
