联合本记, Lian He Ben Ji Claypot Rice

Seven early eight early, we came. Hoping to beat the crowd for the popular claypot rice at the Chinatown Market and Food Centre. Still the minimum cooking time requires an hour wait. The aroma from their kitchen making the tummies rumble.

It was worth it, for our first taste of Lian He Ben Ji. While they are not the only stalls who are still serving out claypot rice done by charcoal fuel, we do believe theirs spend a good time on the blacken stove for that extra smokiness.

Apart from the usual pork and liver sausages, we were certainly delighted to find waxed pork belly in our pot! Disappointingly, some chicken meat tasted dry. Generous portion of salted fish for those who love it. And a watercress soup that was flavorsome and light, none oily.

Chicken + Sausages Claypot for 2 Pax ($12 + $3. Added $3 for added ingredients)
Watercress Pork Rib Soup ($2.50)
