New Lucky Claypot Rice

In case there is a misconception that we only eat at restaurants, this entry is here to set the record straight! We actually eat of quite a fair bit of hawker fare, and now that we drive, it is definitely more convenient to zip ard looking for gd makan that is also not too costly (read: hawker food). In the days of yore (not that long ago la), we used to travel by public transport all the way to the North or the East, just to eat good stuff; we are both based in the far West btw.

Anyway, New Lucky Claypot Rice is not that new to us. We have been going there for years now, and it is very near to Clementi MRT Station, so it’s pretty convenient even by public. It’s moving to Holland Drive soon though, for a heads up on this.

Well, Ter first brought me to here to eat some years back, and at that time, I never knew that claypot rice could be such a sellout; the normal waiting time during peak hours for the claypot rice to be served is a whooping 45-90 minutes! No joke. It is highly recommended that you give them a call beforehand to order, so you don’t have to sit around the kopitiam , soaking up the grease and smoke. During off peak hours, you can expect your order to be served within 30 minutes, which is reasonable i guess, since claypot anything requires more prep time. But it’s well worth the wait, if you ask me. We normally order the chicken claypot rice with additional chicken, and we practically drench the entire claypot with the dark soy sauce before eating. The rice is fragrant, and the chicken is very tender. They use 2 types of chinese sausage in the rice; the normal lup cheong, and the other one is made of pig liver. I am not a fan of livers and innards generally, so the normal lup cheong is good enough for me.

They are pretty generous with the chinese sausages, and I hear they serve yummy soup too. Definitely worth a try, if you are into claypot rice. Remember to call ahead and tell them what time you would be arriving. You would be amazed at how crowded this place can get during peak hours. Oh and there is a minimum order of $10, recommended for 2 pax. If you are that hungry and you are alone, with a huge claypot rice craving, then I say, go ahead!

    Tried yesterday at the new outlet (Holland Drive) and was a little disappointed. Found the rice more fragrant & tasty when this outlet is still in Clementi. The rice yesterday was not as tasty and was rather “soggy” (even though I left the pot of rice to “settle-down” a little before serving). Is that a change in the cook ? Frankly, I was a quite disappointed. I used to yearn for this claypot rice previously. But after yesterday’s, I am not sure if I would yearn for it anymore. Any comments from you out there….?
