HEUN KEE - BEST CLAYPOT CHICKEN RICE IN KL?


I was craving for a good claypot chicken rice for a while now and thankfully, we were introduced to one that's located in KL. Usually, Dex and I will never drive all the way to KL just for food but since we were already in KL for other reason, why not.


Apparently this place is quite famous, you can find many reviews just by googling Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice. Additionally, it can be found in Waze, directions shouldn't be a problem. Parking might a problem, they have limited parking spot that's located at the left of the shop when you exit the restaurant, thus if possible, take a Grab or carpool.



We were there early, probably about 11.30am. The restaurant is quite spacious and clean. However, by 12.30pm, almost all the tables were taken by the lunch crowd. It's crazy seeing groups and groups of working people walking in for their dose of claypot chicken rice. So you could either come early or call them 30min in advanced to reduce waiting time.


Price and portion, I think it's okay. Dex and I ordered a medium sized claypot chicken rice and a pig stomach pepper soup. We were extremely satisfied with their portion and the amount of ingredients they have in them. The pieces of chicken and chinese sausages on top of the claypot chicken rice were amazing and the rice below was extremely delicious. If you are looking for the crust at the bottom of the claypot, unfortunately this doesn't have too much of the crust, which I don't mind. Dex likes that they place the salted fish in a separate tiny bowl so it won't even make some parts of the rice smell like salted fish even after taking them out.


The soup was peppery, super peppery and according to Dex (I don't eat pig's stomach), he said that the intestines was well clean and cook, they don't have a funky smell. 


Overall, I was pleased with the food here. I truly enjoyed their claypot chicken rice. If only they are a little closer to my home, I would go and eat them often.
