We do enjoy claypot rice quite a lot but it is one thing that we do not get easily around here.

Way back in 2008, we stumbled upon a very nice one here and we went back for it again in 2011 but eventually, it called it a day. We also had it here but no, it was not quite the way it should be – more like rice in a claypot with stewed pork or chicken and the sauce poured all over it and served. I tried the one at a hotel coffee house and also at this wannabe-fine-dining place and both were disappointing.

We loved the one here but for reasons unknown, we were told that we could not just drop by and ask for it – orders would have to be made a day earlier and we would be informed whether they would be able to oblige or not. Well, eventually, they closed shop – talk about killing the golden goose. Their claypot rice was very nice and very popular and even though it was not on their menu, theirs had a following and people would make their way there just for it. I wouldn’t say the same about most of their other dishes.

Of course we were delighted when we heard that they had it here…

Wang Seng Food Street

…at this stall…

Claypot King

…run by two very nice and friendly and very enterprising young guys and the first opportunity we got, we made our way there to give theirs a try. It is open from 5.30 p.m. in the evening on weekdays and from 8.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. om weekends and public holidays.

Both the ladies wanted the pork (RM7.00)…

Claypot pork rice

…but I wanted that too and I did not want the chicken (RM8.00) so I asked for the chicken and pork combo (RM14.00)…

Claypot chicken & pork rice

…and yes, it was really very very good but oopsss!!! I think they forgot the green vegetable in mine.

The pork one was good too but it did not have the lap cheong (Chinese sausage) – next time I would bring my own and ask them to add and it did not have the salted fish either. That was why I would say that my order was a cut above what the ladies had.

We sure enjoyed our lunch there that day and one thing’s for sure, we would be back for more!

CLAYPOT KING is located at WANG SENG FOOD STREET (2.342889, 111.831740) in UniCity along Jalan Wawasan.
