Ah Ching Claypot Delights @ Midview City (Sin Ming) - Former Head Chef Of Geylang Claypot Rice Is Back Selling His Famous Claypot Rice



I first got to know Ah Ching when he was at East Village. He was the former Head Chef at Geylang Claypot Rice before venturing on its own. Ah Ching had gone missing for a while when he left the food establishment at East Village. He has opened a new stall - Ah Ching Claypot Delights, selling his signature claypot rice at Midview City.


Charcoal Claypot Rice 4.2/5

Ah Ching still cooks his Claypot Rice ($8/ $20) over charcoal fire from scratch using old rice grains. It takes about 20 minutes for him to cook each claypot. Ah Ching will constantly tilt the claypot at a different angle over the fire so that the rice is evenly cooked and not burnt. Add dark sauce to the rice to eat and give it a good toss. Besides the fragrant rice, Ah Ching makes an effort to marinate the chunky and tender chicken pieces too. The addition of salted fish and Chinese sausages accentuated the taste profile and aroma.

Claypot Wine Chicken Soup 3.8/5

I usually like to have my claypot rice with a bowl of soup, so we had the Claypot Wine Chicken Soup ($10). It is a comforting and hearty bowl of soup with a distinct aroma from the Chinese yellow wine. While the accompanying chicken pieces are tender, I wish for more ingredients.

Claypot Chicken in Sesame Oil 4.2/5

Lastly, we complete our meal with the Claypot Chicken in Sesame Oil ($8). I really find Ah Ching knows how to handle his chicken. They are well-marinated and extremely tender, just like the other two claypot dishes. Cooking the chicken in sesame oil gives the poultry a delicious lift in enjoyment.
