Yuan Yuan Claypot Rice store. I am not overly fond of claypot rice because after eating this dish, your throat usually will feel dry. This is a "heaty" dish. [In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the notion of heaty (yang)(as opposed to cooling or yin) is related to the balancing of yin' and yang'.] It will be better if you order drinks like coconut juice or sugarcane juice to cool the heat.
The ingredients of this dish include rice, chicken meats, mushrooms, lup cheong (Chinese sausages), small pieces of salted and baby bok choy. All these are dump in the claypot with dark soy sauce and cooked together. Once cooked, it will give out a nice smoky fragrant and crunchy rice crust (burnt rice) by the inner side of the claypot. The dish will need to be mixed properly (all the white rice are mixed with the dark soy sauce) before eating. Try the burnt rice which stick to the side of the claypot, it is nice as they give you the crunchy feeling.
Usually this dish is cooked with charcoal as the fragrant will be stronger, but now hardly in use as the setup require lots of time.
Will try it again if I have the feel to eat this dish
