Review: Restoran Claypot Brothers @ TTDI


We tried out this place next to Mama's Kitchen (hmm funny I didn't have a post on this, must dig out the pics one day) in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, called Claypot Brothers. As we walked in, right at the left entrance... there is a cooking station for the cook to fry oyster omelette and cooking claypot rice plus a row of pre-cooked dishes and desserts available. Oh the right is basically the chopping station for lor ark (braised duck) and porridge.

After scrutinising their simple menu, I noticed that they're of mainly Teo Chew dishes. Other than serving claypot rice, they have a variety of porridges other than plain ones to go with the pre-cooked dishes. There is orh nee (yam paste dessert) in the menu too!

For ourselves, we ordered a serving of peppered pig's stomach soup (RM6.00) which came in a rather low in height clay bowl. Hmm... I thought I've ordered a soup but the bowl is filled to the brim with slivers of stomachs and harm choy (pickled mustard cabbage). It's my first taking a stomach soup with harm choy. It's not too hot nor peppery, would be just nice for those who can't stand them. There isn't much soup in the bowl so hubby asked for refill which they gladly did. We drank them all up, no sweat at all. Perhaps the place was airconed??

Next came the oyster omelette (RM8.00) which certainly paled in comparison the one we had in New World Park, Penang. I think it lacked the wok hei even though the oysters were plump.

Finally, our minced pork with salted fish claypot rice (RM18.00) came. It smelt great! It's basically a disc of minced pork cooked on top of the rice. The rice were left as it is - plain and white. The sauce is served separately. Frankly, I think it's not worth its money for the minced patty is kinda thin and there isn't that much of salted fish. Well...

Overall, the place is decent and clean with the exception of flies flying around, most likely due to the smell of salted fish which is as expected but it was rather annoying indeed. The foreign waitresses dressed in traditional uniform which my hubby claimed its typical Hakka ladies clothings back in the olden days but the lady boss of Claypot Brothers doesn't seems to know, to her it's just another traditional Chinese costume.

5% service charge is charged on the total bill.

We only have pig stomach soup (cooked with black peppercorns) during CNY!

The claypot rice has no black sauce at all when they serve? I thought the chicken is usually marinated with black sauce first even they serve the sauce separately.

Wah can see the steam rising from the tempting la. But have taken note of your recommendations (or non-recommendations hehe). The claypot rice is a 2-persons portion?

Oh my... your photos look so tempting to me..... great camera you have (well, & great skill) :)

Perhaps the rice without the sauce will make it less likely to stick to the wall of the claypot?

Babe_KL said...

yes tigerfish but this one is pork patty not chicken. not sure if their claypot chicken rice is marinaded with sauce though

yes portion is for 2 LL... not something very reasonable

sorry to disappoint you karen hahaha i took these pics with my SE W800i phone :p

no idea ler, jason. if you eat in spore, their claypot chicken rice also not served with dark coloured sauce one but yet still tasty.

I had the claypot rice, it's the best by far in K.L.!! mind you, if you are from "proper traditional chinese", you would noticed, black thick sweetened sauce were NOT traditionally added!! We also ordered the pig stomach soup, which was superb! not too hot, and not too pickle like !. I reckoned the claypot brothers is our favourite restaurant in K.L!!! good for you mate...well near to where we lived too!!!. oh....please, try the ginger milk pudding.......OMG!! it's ssssoooooooo good.....
