Transit Market Clay Pot Rice @ Golden Shoe Complex, Singapore

Claypot chicken rice (Chinese: 砂煲鸡饭, 瓦煲鸡饭 or 煲仔鸡饭) is usually a dinner dish in the southern regions of China, Malaysia and Singapore. It is typically served with Chinese sausage and vegetables. More often than not, the rice is cooked in the claypot first and cooked ingredients like diced chicken and Chinese sausage are added in later. At the third level of the Golden Shoe Complex, especially during lunch time, you will find an neverending line of people queuing for claypot rice and noodles.

Traditionally, the cooking is done over a charcoal stove, giving the dish a distinctive flavour. At Transit Market Clay Pot Rice and Noodles, the stall uses gas stove ans serves it with dark soy sauce and dried salted fish. The salted fish enhances the taste of the claypot chicken rice. Due to the time-consuming method of preparation and slow-cooking in a claypot, customers might have to wait a period of time (typically 15-30 minutes) before the dish is ready. The rice was perfectly cooked and it was chewy, making it very delectable. The chicken was freshly prepared that they were tender and juicy. The dark soy sauce mixed with steamed white rice and chicken was perfect. Bought the large size at SGD5, it was very filling and will not make you feel hungry until dinner time. (Food rating: 4/5)
