Singapore - New Lucky Claypot Chicken Rice, Holland Drive

klyeoh | Aug 13, 2013 06:35 AM

This golden oldie of an eatery has relocated from Clementi to Holland Drive after 40 years.

What I liked about New Lucky Claypot Chicken Rice? It's fragrant. That coz the rice is cooked from scratch in a claypot: which meant no rushing, you sit and wait, and wait, and wait. What I'm not so keen about New Lucky Claypot Chicken Rice besides the wait? Well, they give you two metal mugs filled with vegetable oil and dark soysauce - to be added the steaming claypot rice, topped with chicken and waxed Chinese sausage.

I don't know - I prefer the chef-in-charge to add the condiments for me as I *never* seem to get the balance right if I do it myself. Anyhow, I got one of my lunch partners to do the adding and mixing.

The result turned out okay: the rice was perfectly cooked, with a lovely crust at the bottom of thepot which we fought over. The chicken was just cooked and tender-licious. The Chinese sausage gave a wonderful aroma to the rice. I couldn't detect the salted fish though my lunch partners all said they tasted that - maybe the rice wasn't well-mixed enough. A wonderfully filling lunch, but not really recommended on a hot, humid day - you'll be sweating buckets here!
