Sadly, they had run out of claypots so it was served separately as rice & chicken on plates. But this didn’t diminish the quality as the rice still had the nice crisp and half-burntness from the claypot. The chicken was also well-done, being tender and flavorful.

The chicken meat were cooked to tender perfection & the portion was also very generous!

There are at least 3 stalls here in Chinatown Complex Hawker Centre that sells claypot rice. While this stall is not the most popular (that honour belongs to Lian He Ben Ji), they have their own set of loyal fans. Underrated claypot rice gem!

This claypot rice was pretty good and not too salty. There were quite a lot of ingredients (a surprising amount of veggies) and the chicken was especially tender! This area of the hawker centre was also less crowded during lunch time on a Saturday, so it was much better to sit around here rather than the other block. This wasn’t my favourite claypot rice, but it was worth a try!


There are few stalls here selling claypot rice, with one located near to Smith Street side. For $20, the portion is enough for 4 to 5 people.


for 3 people I would recommend $10. we got $15 but we couldn’t finish it, it was so filling.
we also ordered their nai bai ($5) which actually was very nice! cooked with oyster sauce.
I really liked the chicken. it was very fresh & tender, but for the rice itself, i would say I’ve had better ones. it was a bit wet & not too flavourful. portion was a lot though.


It's a mistake I'm more than happy to make everytime I underestimate how generous the portions are and over order. The best way to eat this is to drizzle black sauce and oil over the invitingly aromatic smoky rice before mixing in the tender chunks of marinated chicken, salted fish, lup cheong and green vegetables. My favourite part is the super charred crust adhering to the bottom of the pot that I ease out with the addition of more black sauce and oil acting as lubrication. $12 feeds 2 big appetites(or 3 normal eaters). Be prepared to wait up till 45 minutes in the evenings as they get pretty popular during dinner time.
