With 3 types to choose, from:
Type A – Claypot Mixed Flavor.
Type B – Claypot Chicken only.
Type C – Claypot Chinese sausage only.
I chose type A, medium size for 3 pax.
The Claypot rice has smoky flavour, very tasty, the chicken was tender, and the Chinese sausage not dry. It's pretty good, only missing the crunchy charred layer sticking and salted fish.

The delivery fee is $10 (no minimum order) islandwide with this delivery timing :
Lunch: all day except Wed
Dinner: Mon – Fri .
💰$20 (medium for 3 pax)..

Throwback to happier makan-OUT days with the claypot rice from New Lucky Claypot Rice, a Michelin Bib Gourmand awarded stall located at Holland Drive Market & Food Centre.

The rice is cooked over charcoal stoves, so do expect a long waiting time during peak hours (Pro Tip: call them and order in advance to save on waiting time). Love the slightly charred and crispy rice crust topped with tender and juicy chicken! Elevate the taste further by mixing in sesame oil and dark sauce! Generous serving includes ingredients like Chinese sausages and salted fish too!

That said, they are currently only available for takeaway because of the circuit breaker rule, so do continue to support them and other local F&B businesses during this trying period through takeaway or food delivery services.

When the pot for 3 ($20) arrived at our table with the sauce and oil mixed in, we figured that this was likely due to our table situated far away from the stall, causing the owners to be fearful that their bottles of oil and soya sauce would be misplaced. No matter though, as it allowed me to have a fairer comparison with Ah Ching's which also came with the sauces mixed into the rice.Arguably the most important aspect of a good claypot rice, I tasted the rice first. It turned out to be marginally better as it was slightly sweeter (Though this could simply be due to a greater helping of dark soya sauce) but similar in terms of texture. The charred crispy edges of the rice were still edible but leaned on the edge of being cancerous. Some portions were practically charcoal black. While this may be a sign of an uncontrolled fire, the rice did spend a longer time in the claypot before it was eventually mixed at our table.Of all the components, I thoroughly enjoyed their Lup Cheong (Chinese Sausage) the most for it was surprisingly smoky and sweet to the point of being subtly alcoholic. Fans of salted fish would rejoice as thick visible chunks could be found, compared to Ah Ching's which were barely noticeable, if any. With regards to the chicken, their generous portions of meat were also wonderfully fragrant, with the charcoal smoke imbued and penetrating through the flesh of the meat. Again, comparable to Ah Ching's.
That being said, 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗮𝗯𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗼𝘂𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗱𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗱𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗯𝗲𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮 𝗵𝗮𝘄𝗸𝗲𝗿, 𝗜 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱𝗻'𝘁 𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗽 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗰𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝗺𝘆 𝘃𝗼𝘁𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗔𝗵 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴'𝘀 simply because their's were boneless, awarding them huge brownie points for a lazy customer like me who may otherwise naively bite into a piece of bone upon failing to remove it properly.

Receiving their Michelin Bib Gourmand back in 2017, New Lucky Claypot Rice has been consistent in dishing out claypots after claypots of chicken claypot rice.

Each spoonful has that hint of char & wok hey as the rice is being cooked directly in the claypot from scratch, allowing the edges to be charred & crunchy. The chicken chunks are thick & juicy, leaving you extremely satisfied after the meal. 🤤

Pro tip: do drop them a call at least an hour before your intended dining time to pre-order your meal! This way, your waiting time will be shortened by at least 80%! I called to order at 5.30pm for dinner at 7pm; waited for about 15 mins & got my order by 7.15pm! Otherwise, there would usually be a 45 mins waiting time.

The 5 Ingredients are chicken, Salted Fish, two kinds of chinese sausage, as well as cai gan(dried veggie?). Chicken was so tender and goes incredibly well with the rice. Idk what they did to the chicken but it's really delicious and unlike anything i had before. The chinese sausages were not bad and the darker one was less bouncy and less sweet than the one we're more used to seeing. The veggie was quite different from either Salted or sour preserved vegetables tho they didnt taste too special. Meanwhile the Salted Fish was utterly insane, with so much Fish flavour without as much fishiness, on top of the pungency and the saltiness.

But the toppings can only be so good without an utterly insane Base. The socarrat was literally Burnt but the crunch was so significant and so long lasting. The wok hei was so strong, it's suffocating when the NEIGHBOURING table opened their claypot. I alr had dinner and i still almost finished the 2 pax portion simply cos it's hard to stop.

Some tips: dont have to scoop the rice out into the plate to cool, just scoop out into bowl and eat cos it's somehow not that hot.
When the claypot comes, scoop out the toppings onto the plate so you have more space to work the socarrat.

Some people claim it's the best claypot rice in singapore and i wont be surprised/disappointed if it was. An institution for sure

Michelin guides are dead wrong about Asian food (even in Europe - their ratings in Singapore are pathetic!). So, it’s a surprise they found this stall and gave it a Bib a Gourmand. For us, this is one of the best Claypot Rice eateries in town, especially if you like the rice a bit charred. The chicken, salted fish and lap chong are already plentiful, but you can add more protein, for instance the scrumptious liver lap chong. Several soup choices to lower the heat of the main dish. Make sure you call 30-60 minutes in advance, for the wait can be testing.
