Best Claypot Dishes

Melanie Wong | Oct 5, 2000 09:16 PM

Limster, if you like claypot-type dishes, you should try Bow Hon on Grant Avenue in Chinatown which specializes in these. It’s been a couple years since I’ve been there and don’t have a favorite. The kitchen understands the glossy, braised, high heat flavors that this style of cooking should bring out. Other things are fine too, and it’s not very expensive. A good choice for a simple meal.

There’s a clay pot dish at Koi Palace in Daly City that we like a lot. It’s beef shortribs in pepper sauce. This has nicely browned and braised ribs that are chewy and tender at the same time in an intense black pepper sauce with sweet carmelized onions and roasted garlic, then topped with a still-crisp but cooked julienne of red and green bell peppers. There’s so much flavor going on in this dish.
