Golden Claypot Restaurant 金砂煲

金砂煲

老少美味食品
婦人補身極品
滿月回禮佳品

Few months ago, when we had our dinner in Teow Chew Meng in Chai Leng Park, we saw its next door was doing some renovation work.

Hubby and I were wondering what are they intend to do with this shop? Cuz, formerly this shop was a night club, and it’s been operating for many years already.

Today we decided to check it out after these few months, and now it has turn out to be another eatery outlet in Chai Leng Park. The decorations is so pleasant, the only thing is if you have lots of people dining in perhaps you need to sit at the long table. Cuz, they do not have any big round table cater for 10 or 6. Oh yes, this is the place where the restaurant name tells it all, all dishes are serve in a claypot. That’s why you could see many claypots down here.

What’s good about this place is, dishes were serving pretty fast. So, it’s literally good news for those are hungry. [grin]

While we were scrutinizing the menu, I saw almost every table will order a fish head claypot (紅燒魚頭). I supposed this is one of the recommended dish.

Ever since some time last year, I had the 薑蔥田雞 in Cheang Kee, Nibong Tebal. I’ve not been having Paddy Field Frog; so a pot of 薑蔥田雞 is a must.

Hubby loves pork ribs… so, a pot of Chinese fermented black beans Pork Ribs (豆豉排骨) just for him.

Finally a plate of mixed vegetables that ends the order.

It took only less than 30mins, the dishes are served. The fish head is among the best that we ordered, the ribs isn’t that good, guess something is missing. The Paddy Field Frog isn’t that bad either, it’s good to try.

A simple dinner that satisfied all the gluttons here.

Hi Joe,
I think this is the only biz that can work for the time being.

Hi PenangTuaPui,
Well, individual has their own taste bud. Perhaps their standard is not up to Tham Ciak's expectation. To me, is bearable.

Hi WMW,
'Golden' meh?? :D

Hi CK Lam,
Ya, do share some photos.

Hi Ling239,
Prices are ok, at least small medium family could afford lor.

I think you should try the Claypot Restaurant up in Tg Bungah better. I felt that the taste there is better than this one in Chai Leng Park, although the portion is not that big.
