Claypot Chicken Rice @ PJ Old Town

Wanted to go for Bak Kut Teh at Heng Kee, PJ Old Town, too bad it is closed on Monday and I am not aware of it at all. Perhaps my previous visits fall on some other day. except Monday! It so happened that I was viewing PreciousPea blog this noon and I came across her post on Nameless Claypot Chicken Rice in PJ Old Town, am wondering if this is the one my sister mentioned to me earlier. This restaurant (without signboard) is located right opposite the wet market at Jalan Othman. Not sure whether this is the correct restaurant, but I recognized the uncle's face from pictures seen in PreciousPea blog. Hahahaha.....We then decided to have our dinner here.

Opposite Jalan Othman wet market
If possible, there must be a vegetables dish in each meal of mine. It's just a simple dish. For picture posting only.

I wanted to try their Herbal Nutshell Soup, but auntie said soups all sold out. They are left with salted vegetables soup only. A bit disappointed actually, but still, I want some soup. The soup tasted easy and excellent!

Claypot chicken rice (瓦煲雞飯) is a dinner dish of southern regions of China, then Singapore and Malaysia. It is normally served with chinese sausage( 臘腸)) and vegetables. The rice is cooked in the claypot first and cooked ingredient which is the cut chicken,dark soya sauce,chinese sausage and dried salted fish are added in later. Traditionally the cooking is done over a charcoal stove, giving the dish a distinctive flavour.

As for the claypot chicken rice served here, it is special that it tasted like as if it is cooked in the traditional way (charcaol stove) but it is not. I didn't see any charcoal stove is used when uncle is preparing the dinner dish. I guess the fragant of the rice comes from the long time used claypot. The chickens are well marinated and tender too. They don't served with chinese sausage only salted fish which is already enough to enhance the pot of rice. Great dinner in fact! A good recommendation from PreciousPea. The dinner cost only RM18.00. So what are you waiting for?

Sorry....I don't have the address but the restaurant is easy to locate.
