In traditional claypot rice, you will usually find chicken, lupcheong and salted fish. For Xiang Jiang’s Ginger and Onion Claypot Chicken Rice ($10), their well-marinated chicken really stands out. The chicken is tender and full of flavour, making every bite truly enjoyable. Additionally, the salted fish and lupcheong adds another layer of umami, making every bite an explosion of flavour.

The best part of the dish is really the charred bits of rice at the side. When eaten with the ingredients, the bitterness of the char complements the savouriness perfectly. Just take one bite and you’ll wish you had ordered more! For those who want a bigger portion, there is also a $15 and $20 option, perfect for sharing with your friends and family.

Most of us would usually mix the oil and black sweet sauce into the rice, chicken and lupcheong. However, one reviewer proposed an interesting suggestion. He suggested to remove the chicken and lupcheong, and mix just the rice and black sauce. This allows you to taste the full flavour of the marinated chicken. If you were to mix the black sauce with the chicken, it will overpower the flavour of the marinate. A pretty good suggestion if you ask me!
