Choong Kee Kampar Claypot Rice Restaurant in KL

The best claypot chicken rice in the Klang Valley…

Choong Kee Kampar Claypot Rice restaurant offers the best claypot chicken rice in the Klang Valley – some even say in KL. What’s unique about the pot rice here is the addition of sliced onions to the dish, which gives it a tangy taste and crunchy texture. Plus, instead of the usual gas burners, the restaurant uses charcoal fire stoves – the slow and even heat really makes the rice more flavourful.

A Malaysian version of comfort food, claypot rice is a dinner dish of rice sprinkled with sweet, dark soy sauce, topped with chicken, ham yui (salted fish), Chinese sausage and scallions. Located in Damansara Jaya, Choong Kee Kampar Claypot Rice used to be a hawker stall in a coffee shop just down the road and when business got really good, it upgraded to its own restaurant.

Retaining its modest kopitiam (coffee shop) feel, Choong Kee Kampar Claypot Rice’s decor is simple with white walls and plastic tables and chairs. During lunch and dinner it gets crowded so you might have to wait for a table: the restaurant also has a phone-in, take-away service.

Service is speedy when it comes to the side dishes and drinks, but a pot of claypot chicken rice (which comes in two sizes – big or small) will take about 20-30 minutes to prepare.

The Food

The restaurant’s claypot rice tastes great, with plump and tasty chicken pieces, savoury sausage strips and salted fish bits that simply melt in your mouth. You can also try Choong Kee Kampar Claypot Rice’s black pepper-flavoured rice with beef strips, or the prawn claypot rice (which is pretty different from traditional claypot rice and cooked in something akin to a peppery, lemon-flavoured sauce). Both of these unique varieties are both spicy and tasty.

Other recommended dishes here include vegetables, like water spinach and cabbage, (which come lightly blanched, then fried with garlic and oyster sauce) and eight different types of soups. Broth varieties include steamed lotus root, old cucumber with pork ribs and peppercorn with pork stomach.
