Still one of the best spot for clay pot dishes! Lau Wang Claypot is well-known for its Sesame Chicken (from $5.80/small), cooked in a special thick gravy and served in a clay pot.

Succulent boneless chicken made more fragrant with sesame oil, this is available in both Spicy and non-spicy. Remember to order a bowl of white rice!

Finally get to try Lao Wang after wanting to dine here for a really long time... Thankfully the crowd subsided after 2pm and it was relatively shocking for us to find a seat for 2 pax in a jiffy too on a PH!

Main ⭐️ for us was definitely sesame oil chicken + the herbal soup on a comforting rainy afternoon!

$9.50 for 2 paxs, affordable price & quality food, definitely worth the visit.

The spicy version of Lau Wang’s signature sesame oil chicken features the same tender chicken pieces in a flavourful sesame oil gravy, although this time with the addition of dried and red cut chillis that provided a good amount of heat. The sauce is quite spicy, and perhaps better suited for those with a decent tolerance for spice.

The dish reminded me of stir-fried sambal kangkong dishes you could get from most tze char stalls. The sambal had its distinctive umami flavour and the spicy chilli provided a nice kick. A good choice if you’re looking for some flavourful greens while at Lau Wang.

Lau Wang’s homemade ngoh hiang featured minced pork that was well-seasoned with five spice powder. The addition of diced water chestnuts to the mixture added a refreshing crunch. The beancurd skin wrapped around it was nicely crisped, although just a tad oily, but we guess that’s what makes the ngoh hiang so juicy and flavourful too.

Packed with a generous mix of soft cabbage, lily buds, beancurd skin, black fungus and some vermicelli noodles, the chap chye was cooked in a sweet gravy that also had savoury notes from the use of dried shrimp. It is generally a light dish and a good accompaniment to the other dishes which tend to be more heavily-seasoned.
