Located near the Pudu wet market at Jalan Yew, Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice has been around for more than 30 years. The restaurant was founded by Madam Heun, a friendly auntie who started off with a small hawker stall at the Petaling Jaya Old Town wet market.
Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice still uses charcoal stove used charcoal stoves to cook the rice. Apparently, using charcoal makes a significant difference in the taste as it gives the dish an overall better flavour and aroma.
A standard bowl of Claypot Chicken Rice (S) (RM12.50) with added egg (RM1.50) and extra chinese sausages (RM5) was enough to be shared between the two of us. However if you are a big eater we highly suggest you opt for the medium portion which cost RM22.
Taste-wise, the rice was soft and fluffy, with each grain distinct and moist but not mushy. The chicken pieces in the claypot were well marinated with flavours of soy, sesame oil, chinese wine and a hint of ginger. Although we added the entire salted fish the saltiness wasn’t too overpowering. In fact it gave a good balance of salty flavour and enhanced the overall dish.
Simply put, Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice is one of (if not) the best Claypot Chicken Rice in Kuala Lumpur. The clay pot dishes here were perfectly cooked and taste quite delicious. The only downside of this restaurant is that it is cooked by foreigners as Madam Heun already passed down the skills to her workers.
