Good Claypot Rice at Holland Village

This store has been operating opposite Clementi Central for a long time, before shifting to Holland Village, at the hawker centre on Holland Drive. 

They operate only at night.

Their claypot rice is cooked the old-fashioned way, over a charcoal fire. When you peer into the stall, you see a whole row of charcoal fire stoves. There is a system, where the strongest fire is at one end, while the weakest fire is at the opposite end. The son of the stall-owner (2nd generation) helps his father with the cooking of the claypot rice. 

It is easy to order: $10 for 2 pax, $15 for 3 pax, $20 for 4 pax... all increments of $5. You can also ask for more ingredients to your order, at $5!

They also have double-boiled soups, watercress soup, etc as well as poached green vegetables with oyster sauce.

Do come early, as the wait can go from 30 - 45 minutes during peak dining hours!

New Lucky Claypot Chicken Rice

For detailed review, visit http://www.umakemehungry.com/2014/04/new-lucky-claypot-rice.html

A normal order will take about 40 mins to an hour for food to be served as each pot of rice was cooked upon ordering. Well liked for their charcoal infused taste, these individual earthen pots were first cooked over the gas stove then over the charcoal wood fire at a later part. To reduce waiting time, we had called in advance to reserve our orders. The waiting time was about half the original and they were served with pot cover. When the server opened its lid, steam were seen gushing out and sizzling noises were heard, followed but the strong fragrant from the dish.
 
 It was a pot of plain looking white rice, with sausages, cut chicken pieces on the top layer while mushrooms and salted fish were hidden within.

Only Claypot that worth the wait

Always that consistent;maybe is because I can season my own claypot rice well

The simple dosage of salted fish,rice,chicken,sausage is enough unlike some place which tend to put more ingredients that kill off the dish...rics is perfect with the slightly burnt fragrance smell which i like.

Simply love the belachan and of coz the soup....everything is so perfect

Still quite the average meal

Managed to try this on one of my foody escapades last month. 
Was thinking of being surprised by the good reviews about this place from friends but to me, it was relatively on the average side of quality.

I shared the signature Claypot Chicken Rice with a friend, and it tasted pretty normal, with nothing specially different. The look of the meal when served was pretty messy, and when we tried it, the rice was slightly overcooked with a tinge of burnt taste. However, the chicken was still fairly good, managed to taste the succulent flavour it possesses. 

The sauce that they used was also a little too much on the salty side, making me thirsty very quickly. 

Even though the quality was just mediocre, but their service has impressed me rather well.
Their attentiveness to customer's needs like even getting an extra chair was commendable. Also, serving time was no issue for me, with us getting our meal within 10 minutes considering the long queue of people queueing up to order. 

Overall, it was a fine experience but nothing much that displays how special it was.

Tracking it down is an adventure!

Have had it at Clementi previously, but then recently it's done some moves and it took me a bit to track them down! From Holland Drive to Commonwealth Crescent but the claypot rice here is definitely worth the work!   It's nice and tasty at $5 per person. However, the next time I go along I will definitely order extra toppings! I didn't have enough toppings to go along with my rice :(   The brunt rice is also easy to scrape off so that I can enjoy more of the charcoal goodness. Do try to call ahead to order to rduce your waiting time.
