Sembawang Traditional Claypot Rice

Sembawang is not a place where people will first think of in heading for food or even shopping malls. I used to frequent this huge food court-like area, directly across the road of Sembawang Shopping Centre. It was kind of like my family dining place for dinner when we just want to find somewhere simple and not too far out.

It has been a long time since I last came here with my family, and a lot has changed. Put aside the shopping mall, the food court-like area has been converted into a commercial building, but still surrounded by other eateries. There are some other coffeehouses serving some really tongue-licking food, but the queue is definitely killing the mood. Circling around the building in the middle of the eateries, there it stand Sembawang Traditional Claypot Rice. The service and the food presentation look quite promising, thus decided to give it a try, in addition to that close to three-quarter of the tables occupied.

Rather than just serving claypot dishes, Sembawang Traditional Claypot Rice's menu also cover other dishes, just like a usual tze-char stall. It does not have a variety of food, but it will suffice for a simple meal.

San Lou Bee Hoon ($4.80) is the first item we sighted on the menu and knew this has to be ordered. True enough, we had an enjoyable time chewing and swallowing every single strand of bee hoon. It is so delicious where you can taste every bit has the savoury seafood juice in it. Bee hoon is not too dry and the moist is just right.

Minced Meat Omelette ($8.80). I am an egg-lover, and basically if I am given a choice to select my own dishes, omelette is hardly missed. I love how Sembawang Traditional Claypot Rice isn't too reserved in dropping the amount of minced meat when frying the omelette, and not charred at the sides.

Claypot Sesame Oil Chicken ($12.80) has a sweet gravy that is definitely suitable and complement to white rice. It's thick and sweet gravy that wraps around every single chunk of the chicken meat, can't really stop you after the first piece went down your throat.

Of course, down here in Sembawang Traditional Claypot Rice, you should not miss out on their Traditional Claypot Rice ($13.80 normal portion). Crew will add on the dark soy sauce and mix it right at your table. Of course it can't be compared to cooking from a wok where each grain of rice will be covered with the dark soy sauce, this way of mixing in the claypot infuse a little more traditional taste to it.

With this amount of food shared among 3 pax, you can be sure that we are so full after the meal. Food here may not be the best, but it simply make it sufficient for claypot-cravers. In not-such-a attention seeking place, what matter is the quality of the food served to the table and getting more head nods than shakes to keep it going. Sembawang Traditional Claypot Rice is deem to be the former!
