Since our last visit...we've been craving for some more claypot rice (煲仔飯), so this time, we dragged MukMuk-D along. For the past few weeks, MukMuk-D has become an important eating buddy because he eats almost anything (just no bittermelon, or anything bitter) and he eats quite a bit...so we recruited him to join our pack...hahahahahaha!!!
After we ordered, they served each of us a bowl of soup and a mini-serving of seaweed. The "boss" (owner) was in on this day, so the girl (with glasses) who was a bit ignorant last time was all pleasant and courteous...hahaha...quite a difference.
Originally, MukMuk-D was going to order something else, but I think I influenced him when I mentioned that the pork chop pot sounded quite interesting, so in the end, he ordered a Clay Pot Rice With Pork Chop On Top (豬扒煲仔飯). There were two sauce choices: black pepper & onion (黑椒洋蔥), or cheese & ketchup (芝士茄汁), he went with latter.
Although the "chops" were quite tender and juicy, however, the overall "pot" had way too much ketchup and very little cheese (almost none)...and the "style" kinda spoiled the fun of having a claypot rice.
I decided to go for the Clay Pot Rice With Pork Belly On Top (紅燒五花腩煲仔飯). Other than the meat, it also had some kind of mushrooms (can't remember what it's called), and some seasonal veggie.
The meat was quite fatty, but it was quite a generous amount. The sauce from the braised meat along with the added soy sauce for the rice made a great combo in flavor and taste. This was yummy!
Buddha Boy was boring. He had the same thing as last time, the Clay Pot Rice With Minced Pork Cake On Top (肉餅煲仔飯). The only difference was last time he ordered it with the salted fish (鹹魚), and this time, he went with the preserved veggie mui-choy (梅菜).Buddha Boy was so happy with the "wok-ba" or "guo-ba" (鍋巴)...one of his favorites! He thought it was made just right. I could tell that he really enjoyed it because he ate my portion too!!! LOL! It's ok, I'm not a big fan of it anyways, I like my rice soft and fluffy.
