Kuala Lumpur - Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice

One evening we went out to the Pudu neighborhood of KL to have dinner at Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice.

The place was busy, but we only had to wait briefly - the wait was actually fun, since you can watch the guys cooking the clay pots over coals out in front of the restaurant.

We shared their standard clay pot chicken, which came with pieces of chicken, chinese sausage, and a tiny bowl of salted fish that you could add to your taste (it was very salty).

The chicken was very good, and while I don't usually particularly like chinese sausage, I enjoyed these ones - they weren't too sweet.

We also got a big plate of gai lan (yay vegetables!).

Everything cooks in the clay pot, and they add a savory sweet-soy sauce to it. The bottom part of the pot gets crispy and caramelized from the heat.

It was a tasty and satisfying meal, but definitely a big part of what makes it a go-to spot is the spectacle of them cooking the pots.
