HEUN KEE CLAYPOT CHICKEN RICE


This place Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice, has many a time been mentioned in newspapers and many bloggers too have blogged about it. Therefore I am no exception in my thirst for wanting to try out this place and putting my two cents worth.



To begin with, hubby and I took quite a while in locating this place and it being a Sunday, traffic was rather busy as the Pudu wet market is very nearby.  The shop is located just beside a flyover but luckily it is air-conditioned and with the charcoal stoves placed outside along the corridor.  Yes, they use charcoals for cooking the claypot rice thus giving it that added oomph And the unique feature about this claypot cooking is that they even have the glowing charcoals placed over and on top of the claypot!  This is to ensure that the rice together with the chicken pieces and slices of sausage inside gets cooked evenly and are well infused with the flavouring.



There is no printed menu for us to see.  They have however hung on the wall photos of dishes that are available in this shop besides the infamous claypot chicken rice.




Besides having the claypot chicken rice with salted fish, we tried out also their blanch vegetables with oyster sauce (which they kept to a minimum) and the vinegar pork trotters (chee keok chor) which lacked the tang of ginger probably due to the fact that they used ginger slices instead of those whole chunky ones but otherwise the ratio of the sourness is well balanced.  We also tried out their fried chicken wing and on a scale of 10 I would give it a 6.5.  However the drink buah kedondong (ambarella fruit) with suen mui (sour plum) is awesome!  Truly refreshing after a heavy meal and it’s a must to have when in this shop.  The lady boss, Madam Heun, uses only fresh fruit to extract its juice unlike some other restaurants where they use the ready bottled artificial flavouring.






 Hope to return to try out the other dishes soon .......
