This new claypot shop 瓦 wǎ hails from a successful claypot restaurant in Petaling Jaya, which has been around for more than 30 years. The boss’s son decides to venture out to Singapore armed with his secret family recipe and creative twists to the claypot dishes.
The traditional claypot rice ($9.20) has the addition of an egg prepared Japanese style. Runny and lovely, best with cripsy lightly burnt rice. Another different style is the claypot pandan rice ($10.20) which came with rendang chicken on the side. While I wished that the rice was more fragrant and coconutty, the spicy and mouthwatering chicken would appeal to those who like homely Malaysian-styled food.
