I was hunting for the infamous Lam Mee, but it was closed. This happened few weeks ago when we (me and my trainees) were craving for Lam mee.
Instead, we headed for claypot chicken rice opposite the road at Jalan Yew, Pudu.
I was told that they used charcoal for their claypots at Foong Lian. That’s something that really interest me. Mostly use gas stove.
There were lots of different types of claypot foods. However, we ordered the claypot chicken rice only. We loved chickens.
The claypot chicken rice comes with chinese sausages and chicken and sprinkled with spring onions. The salted fish was extra. The claypot rice was cooked throughly with the sauce. Thus, I felt the rice was fragrant but lacked of saltiness. However, it blended well with the salted fish.
Again, I would stress here that saltiness is subjective with different individuals.
It cost us around RM 7-8 per pot. Service was good and the place was packed during lunch time.
