A-One Claypot House – little expectation but left with great satisfaction
Going round the water fountain in Suntec city looking for a place for dinner, everywhere was so crowded and ended at A-One Claypot House since the queue is the shortest. There is no high expectation on the food as we just need to find a place to pacify the growling stomaches.
A-One Claypot House specialises in claypot but do serves other family style comfy food. The food on the menu looks ordinary and nothing catch our attention.
Frog Legs Porridge $13.90
Porridge best to cook in the claypot, the ceramic help to maintain the temperature and keep the fragrance in the pot through the simmering process. The porridge was silky smooth and fine, the frog legs with mild spicy sauce made a heavenly combination and made you ask for more.
Fried Eggplant with Pork Floss $16.90
The egg plant was deep fried with salted eggs yolk, no inch thick of flour and hard as rock coating, what presented was a plate of beautifully coated eggplant, lightly crisp externally and juicy soft brinjai simply alluring and additive.
Omelette with Pork Floss $12.90
Omelette was thinly fried with Chai Po and topped with pork floss, a relatively simple dish but a good reflection the quality of the chefs, it is not the slobbishly cooked omelette you usually find from many of the zi char stalls or restaurants around. The combination of sweet and savoury is subtle for this luscious dish.
Lotus with Assorted Vegetables $12.90
The chef was able to bring up the natural flavours from the ingredients without too much of the dressings for this simple fried seasonal vegetable.
Claypot Chicken & Mushroom Rice $12.90
The claypot porridge was flavoursome and the claypot chicken rice was reasonably tasty as well, may not make you dream about it but the tenderly meat and well-seasoned chicken make it a disk worth to try.
Gong Bao Chicken with Cashew nut $17.90
The tender chicken meat was infused with the well balanced flavour from the spices and seasoning, it made a perfect marriage with the silky porridge.
Roselle and Assorted Dried Fruit Tea $7.90
The glass teapot and tiny glass cup created a nice clear contrast of this crimson drink, We like Roselle tea for its close similarity in taste to the Rebena drink and the added dried fruits for the sweetness. A grunting choice after a heavy meal.
