Claypot Rice Singapore

Best Claypot Rice Singapore

Claypot rice is a Singaporean delicacy that is served with savory clay pot rice, claypot chicken or claypot pork. Claypot food has become popular in Southeast Asia and the claypots are often used to cook other dishes as well. The clay pots have been traditionally created from red clay but more recently have been made of steel due to health concerns about lead poisoning from cooking in unfired clay pots polluted by lead-based glazes.

There are many claypot rice restaurants in Singapore. Which claypot rice restaurant is the best? What claypot dishes should you try at each claypot rice place? We have compiled a list of clay pot rice places to visit for 2024 so that you can find the perfect spot for your next meal!

Key Considerations Factors

  • Type of Rice: Make sure to use a high-quality type of rice, like jasmine, glutinous, or Basmati, which has a floral taste and a fluffy texture.
  • Meat: Depending on your chosen flavor profile, choose the sort of meat that appeals to your palate the most, such as chicken, pig, fish, or mushrooms.
  • Flavorings: The use of high-quality fish sauce, oyster sauce, and Shaoxing wine gives the meal that little something extra. The quantity of seasoning should be adjusted according to each individual’s taste.
  • Preparation Method: Traditional clay pots are heated over charcoal, which gives the food a smokey flavor. Modern clay pots, on the other hand, can be heated with electricity. Use an electric model if you’re short on time, but watch out that you don’t make the rice too dry! 
  • Quality of Claypot: Choose a pot with an enamel coating because it evenly distributes heat, so there are no burned spots and the bottom of the pot has a crisper crust.

Geylang Claypot Rice is not located in Geylang, unlike its name. They’ve moved from a modest coffeeshop to a sleek new restaurant along Beach Road, with air conditioning. Mr. Ng Kim Hock (better known as ‘Ah Tiam’), the creator of Geylang Claypot Rice, has been serving this dish for more than 30 years. Its distinctive claypot rice is slow-cooked to order over charcoal for that smoky taste, with traditional toppings including chicken, Chinese sausage, waxed meat, and salted fish over rice.

There’s also a decent number of local “Tze Char” side dishes such as the Tofu with Prawns and the French Bean with Shrimps to pick from if you’re craving something a little more.

Client Testimonial:

I missed good claypot rice. I am pleasantly surprised the claypot right is awesome! The other dishes are also great! Definitely will go back if i have craving for claypot rice again. Recommended to call in advance 30 mins before arriving so they can cook the claypot rice and you can have it fast upon arrival.

Yew Chuan Claypot Rice (酉川沙煲饭) is a well-known dish in the CBD area, and it’s no surprise that Yew Chuan Clayppot Rice is home to many other must-eat options.

The stall is owned by a husband-and-wife team that has been in the industry for almost 20 years. Unlike many other stalls, they only provide one dish and no additional side dishes.

The Claypot Chicken Rice (S$6/S$12/S$18/S$24/S$30) is only available in certain sizes, from single servings to big groups. Every claypot includes deliciously soft chicken parts that are flavored with their unique marinade.

The most outstanding feature of this restaurant is that, unlike other places, they provide two different varieties of lap Cheong. The changing levels of sweetness added a new dimension to each bite, making it a delectable dining experience with bragging rights.

Client Testimonial:

Awesome!!! You gotta try it yourself to believe it. Everything is just right! Rice is not hard, and can eat the “rice cracker” if you scrap hard enough, Chicken piece is soft, salted fish aplenty, Chinese sausage is soft and comes with crunchy vegetable…. A hearty meal indeed.

Yuan Yuan Claypot Rice (源源砂煲饭) in the same food center as Wow Wow West serves not only claypot rice but also nutritious soups. The owner is now in his 70s and works alongside his family at ABC Brickworks Market & Food Centre, where he has been together with his family.

Traditional fish dishes, such as boned fish with ginger and garlic (S$29), are also popular. They’re great for using hua diao wine in their Famous Claypot Rice (S$10/S$15/S$20/S$25). This adds to the dish’s flavor and aroma, making it even more appealing

The distinctive smoky flavor of claypot rice cooked over a charcoal fire is another interesting characteristic. The chicken’s umami tastes are enhanced by the smokiness.

Client Testimonial:

The claypot rice was cooked using charcoal so it had a wonderful smokey fragance and taste. The chicken were well marinated. There were lup cheong and salted fish too. A portion for two costs $15, which is reasonably priced. Staff were polite and hygenic and accepted e-payment.

Lian He Ben Ji Claypot Rice is located in Chinatown Complex, where every pot of rice is made from scratch. While the line may last up to an hour, the claypot rice here is well worth it.

There’s no doubt that Sembawang Traditional Claypot Rice is a household name in the north. Their time-tested recipes date back to the 1980s, with their grains cooked over charcoal and straight in the claypot to retain that distinctive smokiness. The Traditional Claypot Rice (from S$8.80) has a lot of satisfyingly crunchy bits, as well as a hearty portion of chicken (albeit bony ones). If you’re hungry, try one of their zi char entrees, such as the wonderfully crispy San Lao Bee Hoon (from S$5.80).

In Singapore, there are several well-known claypot rice stalls, including New Lucky Claypot Rice, which has a Michelin Bib Gourmand distinction. If you go in without calling ahead, you may be waiting up to 45 minutes.

Clayspots are certainly not the first thing that springs to mind when you think of traditional Chinese cuisine. Stovetop claypot rice, on the other hand, is a popular food in Taiwan and is available at low cost. The smallest plate serves two people and costs $15.

Client Testimonial:

Moved from Clementi coffee shop to Holland Drive. I’m amazed that it tastes exactly the same. They have very good soup too.

Tip: call to place your order before heading down. Unless you want to sit there and wait for your food to cook. Can’t chope the soup or vegetable. So its best to reserve early.

Yong Nian may be a relatively new listing in comparison to the other choices here, but this unknown place, now located at Bukit Merah, provides a delicious claypot rice dish.

What is the appeal of these rice dishes? A unique combination of sauce that’s sprinkled over the rice upon ordering. What’s the best aspect? The stall doesn’t provide bowls or plates to scoop your rice out onto; instead, you’ll have to eat it straight from the claypot for an extra special experience.

Client Testimonial:

Worth the hype. The rice in the pot is “wetter” than other claypot places I’ve been to, so it may put off some people. However I really like the take and chicken still remains very moist and juicy.

There’s also Zhao Ji Claypot Rice, an underappreciated stall that is perhaps as good as Lian He Ben Ji. While the rice at this location isn’t cooked over coals as it is in Burma, the chicken within their claypot rice is said to be delicate and delicious. The prices vary from $10 to $28, and if you love meat, the Various option is worth a try, which adds more pork to the mix.

Client Testimonial:

It has the original taste of the yesterdays of old Chinatown sidewalk claypot rice. Well cook and tasty. Pricing at $10.00 (Small) for one person. However, watch out of salted fisg scales. Opening hours: 11am to 8.30pm.

To wash everything down, try the Papaya White Fungus Stewed Pork Ribs Soup ($3.80), naturally sweetened with papaya.

Client Testimonial:

The claypot rice is really good. Really flavourful, and affordable. Recommend the claypot sausage bacon pork rib and chicken rice. Has a generous dollop of salted fish. The pictures in the rest of the review speak for themselves. Good variety of Cantonese soups. If u are Cantonese as I am, 粉葛排骨汤 is recommended.

One of the halal restaurants not far from Orchard road with prices that are still quite affordable with good taste and friendly service. Although the place is not too broad but still comfortable to enjoy food.

There’s something unique about the way it was presented. Before the dark sauce and oil were added, the chicken chunks, Chinese sausage, salted fish, and salted duck egg yolk were removed. Auntie helped with everything rather than some stalls that are DIY.

Client Testimonial:

Very generous with their ingredients, this has got to be one of the most value for money Claypot rice. First try, it seems tasteless except for the burnt wok hey taste. However, after adding ample amount of black sauce and oil, the taste tilted to serious tasty. I love it. There are chunks of salted fish too so be sure to mix evenly. I’ll be back for more.

Broadway Claypot Rice (百樂匯砂煲飯) in Ang Mo Kio’s heartlands has long been my family’s choice for claypot rice. The stall is well-known in the region, and they’ve proven themselves worthy of that distinction over time.

In the center, you’ll find a range of dish options. Kampong Chicken is available for selection (S$9/S$11/S$17/S$22/S$26), while normal chicken may also be chosen ( S$8/ S$,10/ S$,15 /).

This is the place to go if you adore the burnt bits of rice at the claypot’s edges. They’re notorious for always slightly overcooking their rice, resulting in a burned layer that I just can’t get enough of.

Client Testimonial:

The rice at the bottom of this claypot was not burnt, and there was no need to scrape it off, which may disappoint those who enjoy scorched bits (a nice name for charred pieces).

The pieces of fish were thick, juicy, and seasoned with a delightful spice blend. Each bite was packed with flavor thanks to the crispy fried fish bits, which added something unexpected and delicious to every mouthful.

Client Testimonial:

Unsure why the reviews of this place is so bad. KL Tai Pai Tong practically revive this food court. Food was served fast. I ordered the curry fish head. Portion was big enough for 3 person to finish. There were many interesting dishes which I would be very curious to try in future. Waiting time was also okay as compared to the other reviews.

Only order from this stand if you have time to spare, as the meals are prepared to order here. However, wait it out and you’ll be rewarded with a huge steaming claypot brimming with flavorful rice that has absorbed all of the ingredients’ juices. The rice grains are prepared from scratch in the claypot before other components are added, and they’re seasoned with dark soya sauce, oil, and a touch of chilli.

The claypot rice ($10) includes lots of ingredients, such as wonderfully fatty pork belly, mushrooms, lup cheong, chicken chunks, and more. The rice is mouth-wateringly fragrant with a delicious smoky flavor. The taste of the dish is excellent; however, because of the high salt content, I felt that the chicken pieces were a little too salty. The star of the show does not disappoint; it’s in the form of guo ba (or scorched rice that clings to the claypot’s bottom), which is plentiful.

Claypot Rice is a traditional Singaporean dish that is cooked in a clay pot over a charcoal fire.

The dish is seasoned with dark soy sauce, oil, and chili for an aromatic and flavorful finish.

What makes claypot rice unique?

The signature claypot rice stands out from other dishes due to its cooking method and flavor profile. The clay pot retains the heat from the charcoal fire, allowing the flavors of the ingredients to meld together as they simmer and produce a delicious dish meal with a strong aroma. Additionally, the rice at the bottom of the pot develops a unique charred texture known as guo ba (rice crust or crisped up rice) which adds an extra layer of complexity to claypot rice’s flavor profile. You can add dark soy sauce to the guo ba or more more salted fish or pair it with prawn paste chicken for flavor.

Claypot rice can be found in many hawker centres throughout Singapore, such as Berseh Food Centre, Bukit Merah View Blk 115, and Geylang Claypot Rice Village, just to name a few of hawker centre claypot rice that serve pretty decent food.

What are some popular accompaniments for claypot rice?

Claypot rice goes well with zichar dishes or Chinese soup dishes like herbal black chicken soup, salted mackerel fish, prawn paste fried chicken, or ginseng black chicken soup, as well as frog porridge or fish soup, for more variety and texture contrast when eating it as part of a meal.

How much does claypot rice cost in Singapore?

Claypot Rice typically costs between $7 and $20 in Singapore. Prices can vary based on the ingredients included, the overall food quality and the size of the claypot being ordered but generally, prices remain extremely reasonable. Popular dishes like Claypot Chicken Rice or Claypot Sausage Rice usually range from $15 – $20, while simpler Claypot Porridge or Claypot Fried Rice cost around $7 -$10.
