Located in the Chartwell Centre food court, this is a new restaurant.
I ordered the shrimp, Chinese sausage and egg on rice claypot for $9.99.
The claypot casserole dishes take approximately 20minutes to cook, so as long as you have time and are willing to wait, you will be rewarded with a tasty meal.
It comes with a side dish of green and also a choice of beverage (I got the soy milk), and the all important special soy sauce. Why is it special you ask? Well regular soy sauce just tastes salty. The soy sauce that is used to accompany the claypot casserole rice is sweetened. So it has to be made. The soy sauce is nice as it helps to add aromatics and depth to the rice.
What makes this dish especially nice is the use of fresh match stick ginger on top of the rice to not only add fragrance, but to also balance out the soy sauce and meats.
The vegetable side dish is nice, lightly flavoured and is a good contrast to the rice and meats.
This place is part of the Chartwell Shopping Centre food court serving classic Taishan clay pot rice (煲仔飯). I ordered the four treasures rice (四煲飯): Chinese sausage (pork and liver), preserved duck, cured pork belly and eel. $9.95+tax and a 20 minute wait. The chef is from Taishan, cooking the clay pots directly on the gas stove, leaving a decent crunchy bottom. A good sized portion of yau choi (油菜) is served with the pot. Well done overall. The preserved meats and rice were a little on the dry side and I wish there was a little more eel, but difficult to complain about value at this price.
