House of Clay Pot has expanded into a mini-chain almost overnight. And this is a good thing, as they serve interesting and very well prepared things, reports marlon.
Chicken mushroom clay pot is soft and fragrant. Roasted duck with taro is the best of many versions he’s tried. And General Tsao’s chicken is, suprisingly, truly wonderful. It’s not over-battered or over-fried, and actually has the right amount of spice and sauce. House vegetable goose is good, though served warm (usually it’s cold), and ong choy is well prepared.
Clay pot rice is excellent, too. Be sure to look around your table for cruets of their seasoned, soy-based sauce. Add some to the clay pot rice, then mix it all up. They won’t do it for you, and without the sauce, the clay pot rice will be underflavored.
There may a branch on Irving, as well, but we couldn’t locate it. Stay tuned!
