Claypot noodle & Chicken Rice - Pelangi (Johor Baru)

This is a old school hawker along Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The setup are in plastic table and chairs. Fans are installed so it will not be so hot when you sit in. There are lots of stalls selling different kinds of food. I am going to introduce this claypot stall right at the end of the hawker center.

Hot plate noodle is one of the most popular dish available from that stall. The dish consist of chicken pieces, mushroom, cabbages, egg and of cause noodle. The special thing about the noodle is it is thin and long, not the usual yellow noodle available in the market or supermarket. The noddle is very tender when you chew. The cooking time is just right to get this texture. The brown sauce is more towards oyster cause as it is abit sweet. When you mixed the whole ingredients, together with the peanuts bits, it make the dish more fragrant and crunchy.

Claypot chicken rice is the most popular dish ordered from the stall. The dish taste great. It is served with chicken chunks, Chinese sausage and vegetables. It is served with dark soya sauce, so you will need to mix the whole dish before consuming. The rice is moist and not overly cooked, so there are minimum burnt rice stick by the side of the claypot.  

Satay is available at other stalls too. Satay, or sate, is a dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat, served with a sauce. Usually grinded peanuts sauce with chili paste and spices as seasoning. The choice of meats include chicken, mutton and beef. The satay are cooked nicely and juicy over charcoal and they really taste great.
