Kopi Tiam – Satisfy Your Cantonese Culinary Cravings

By Daniel, March 14, 2012

Kopi Tiam at Swissotel The Stamford is no ordinary coffee shop, but one which is known to gather the best of local dishes with a heavier than usual price tag. Even though most of the hawker food served here easily cost more than $10, locals and tourists come here to savour their signatures such as Fish Head Curry, Laksa, Rojak and Char Kway Tiao.

What many may not know is they actually have some special promotion every month, which all range from Teochew fare, Cambodian dishes, all-things fish, to the most recent authentic Cantonese culinary creations.

The Clay Pot Rice with Chicken, Salted Fish and Pork Sausage ($18) seems to be the must-have, because it is what Chef himself recommended, plus it is one of the few carb dishes on the promotional menu.

I am so used to pouring the dark sauce and oil over my claypot rice, until I saw that the seasoning has already all been added inside. This is so that the rice would not be that dry and can absorb the flavours better. I like the chicken meat pieces inside – well-marinated and tender. Though they could be more generous with the Lak Cheong. Personal preference.

瓦 Wǎ – Not Your Usual Claypot Rice

By Daniel, January 28, 2011

8 Grange Road #04-01 Cathay Cineleisure Orchard
Sunday to Thursday 11.30am to 11.00pm Friday, Saturday & Eve of Public Holidays 11.30am to 2.00 am

This new claypot shop 瓦 wǎ hails from a successful claypot restaurant in Petaling Jaya, which has been around for more than 30 years. The boss’s son decides to venture out to Singapore armed with his secret family recipe and creative twists to the claypot dishes.

The traditional claypot rice ($9.20) has the addition of an egg prepared Japanese style. Runny and lovely, best with cripsy lightly burnt rice. Another different style is the claypot pandan rice ($10.20) which came with rendang chicken on the side. While I wished that the rice was more fragrant and coconutty, the spicy and mouthwatering chicken would appeal to those who like homely Malaysian-styled food.

Golden Mile Food Centre 505 Beach Road #01-65 Tel: 6295 8234
Opening hours 5 – 10pm (Closed on Wednesdays)

30 years in the claypot rice business, this couple team is still going strong at its original stall at Golden Mile. The owner was sheepishly proud that her stall was rated Number 1 over the other famous Chinatown and Clementi stalls on a local television competition.

Golden Mile’s claypot rice was a classic – fragrant rice which was topped with tender marinated chicken pieces, tasty Chinese sausages, fresh green vegetables and light traces of salted fish. The winner was the soya sauce, thick and dark, yet not overly salty which would usually make one thirst.
