Standard has dropped?

Full review and photos: http://foodiefc.blogspot.com/2012/03/broadway-claypot-rice-ang-mo-kio.html

Broadway Claypot Rice 百乐匯砂煲饭 has more than 30 years of history and as it's name suggest, it specialises in dishing out claypot rice. It is located at Coffee City, the same coffee shop as the Xu Yan Tonic Soup that sells great herbal soup.

If you are observant, you will notice that although the sign says 'Claypot Rice', most of the items on the signboard are pig organ soup and bak kut teh.

As mentioned earlier, Broadway Claypot Rice over the years has built up its name by serving claypot chicken rice. But not just any normal claypot chicken rice. Patrons has the choice of asking for the 'normal chicken' or 'kampong chicken'. And of course the kampong chicken claypot rice will cost more.

The prices of the 'normal chicken' and 'kampong chicken' claypot rice are at the bottom of this picture. As there was two of us, we ordered the Claypot Chicken Rice (normal chicken) for 2 person at $13. There has been an increase of price by $1 after this coffee shop was renovated. Takes about 20 minutes for it to be served after ordering.

Do be careful not to touch the claypot as it is sizzling hot and steaming. Look at the smoke 'emitting' out.

Looks quite big and wide, but the claypot bowl is very shallow.

Here's how it looks like after stirring and mixing all the rice and ingredients. I have eaten the claypot rice at this stall before. This time I can't help but comment that it looks different. Way too much dark sauce was added.. and I was right. It was quite salty... and I was disappointed. Standard has dropped. This time the amount of dark sauce has masked the fragrant of the other ingredients except for the salted fish. Other ingredients include chinese sausage and spring onions.

The good news is that there are lots of charred rice at the bottom of the claypot (to the disapproval of the partner). Crispy and crunchy.

Wonder if standard has really dropped or if it was a one off incident.

Broadway Claypot Rice – 30 years and still piping hot and good

Ang Mo Kio (AMK) Central is one of the places to go for goody hawker food for food lovers. The hawker center at Blk 724 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6 alone houses quite a few famous stalls selling fried oyster omelette, satay bee hoon, dessert and minced pork noodle, among many others. The famous Tip Top curry puff stall can also be found in AMK Central. Most of the stalls have been around for more than 20 years.

Another stall that has been around and serving the AMK residents for more than 30 years is Broadway Claypot Rice (百乐匯砂煲饭). Tucked away in a corner of AMK Central, Broadway Claypot Rice serves up one of the best kampong chicken claypot rice in Singapore.

I remember I had this claypot rice a few times before and the last time was more than 10 years ago. Tonight, my family and I decided to test it out again after such a long absence.

We ordered a kampong chicken claypot rice for three, braised pig trotter and stir-fried sweet potato leaves (from the tze char stall). Although the coffeeshop was pretty crowded tonight, it didn’t take too long for the dishes to be served.

The chicken claypot rice was served piping hot and steaming. The aroma of the claypot rice immediately penetrated our nostrils the moment it was set in front of us. The rice was quite well cooked and it wasn’t too dry or lumpy. The chicken and Chinese sausage (lup cheong) in the rice were fat and juicy and they really enhance the fragrance of the whole dish. The best part of the claypot rice has to be the burnt and charred rice crisps at the bottom of the pot, which was nice and crunchy. It was not overly burnt and gave the rice an added flavour.

The chicken claypot rice is still as good as before. However, the portion of the rice can be more generous. If you and your friends or families are big carb eaters, I suggest you order a portion bigger.

Both the braised pig trotter and sweet potato leaves are pretty normal. There’s nothing to shout about. I’ve tasted better versions elsewhere. Oh well… anyway they are well known for their claypot rice and they do serve up good and yummalicious claypot rice. If you happen to be in AMK and craving for nice and delicious claypot rice, Broadway Claypot Rice is still the place to go to satisfy your taste bud.

Verdict: A must try for claypot rice lover!

Kampong Claypot rice

Its Kampong chicken claypot rice is one of the hot-seller. Service time is about 20mins due to the cooking time and price is a little steep especially when its located among the heartlands. But worth a try still when you are in that area.

Thumbs up Claypot Rice!

We ordered Kampong chicken claypot rice. Chicken is tender and well marinated but too little for a very hungry me. There isn't any vegetable in the rice. Although it tastes great but i find it a little pricey. Waiting time (15 mins) is reasonable for such a popular stall.
