Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice, Pudu

I’ve heard good things about the claypot chicken rice at Heun Kee in Pudu but getting to that part of town from Bangsar can be a nightmare. Moreover, I’m not a big fan of claypot chicken rice so I didn’t see the urgency of checking this place out.

Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice

Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice has been around since the 90’s and charcoal stoves are used to cook the rice so it is tastier and more fragrant. As such, you might need to wait at least 30 minutes for your claypot chicken rice. Alternatively, you can call them to order your food earlier to avoid waiting for too long.

Seafood tofu

I snacked on some seafood tofu (RM9) which wailing for the rice and found it to be quite decent. The soft beancurd is mixed with seafood and fish paste, and deep fried till crispy on the outside. This went well with the homemade chilli sauce served at the side.

We shared a medium-sized claypot chicken rice (RM16) and added an egg (RM1.50) on top. Despite not being a fan, this was good stuff. The rice had a good aroma from the charcoal cooking process and it was of just the right texture. The chicken pieces were adequately juicy and the egg added moisture to the rice.

Aromatic

I liked the crispy bits of rice at the bottom of the pot. Super addictive! On the whole, dinner was quite enjoyable. The charcoal cooking process did give the rice a better flavour overall. I could eat this again, and again.

      Have the same feeling too.

      I tried the claypot rice at Foong Lian at Pudu too, guess what? it taste a lot better and its charcoal cooked too. From Foong Lian business card, they has a website at http://www.foonglian.com and a facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/claypotfoods.

      Sharing is caring, hope I did not wrongly recommend.
