Uncle Sam's Claypots

Uncle Sam's Claypots used to have one of the best claypots around, back in the 90s. Sadly, the standard has dropped quite a fair bit. The ingredients have shrunk, the prices have risen and the claypots are not as yummy as they used to be. I used to love the tom yum noodle soup, but I don't eat it anymore. Also, I always come of the air-conditioned restaurant smelling like the food I just ingested. And, my hair will end up smelling like that the rest of the day.

The only dish I feel worth eating here is the Claypot Chicken ($6), the rice has a nice charred smoky flavour, the chicken is succulent and well-marinated, and the preserved Chinese sausages (lup cheong) add flavour.

A colleague wanted something lighter for lunch, so he got the Claypot Ipoh Kway Teow ($6), which was a little disappointing. The kway teow wasn't very smooth and the soup was a little MSG-ish. He didn't finish this.

The good thing is that they have a 15% discount if you pay by Citibank credit cards. That would eliminate the service charge and some of the GST portion of the total bill.

Go try out Clay Abode at Maxwell Road instead. It's a new claypot place. The food is quite good. But go early if you are going for lunch as it tends to be packed.
