Taman Paramount is one of my favorite locations for dinner for the simple fact that it is pretty close to where I stay, and it doesn’t hurt that the area (including seapark and ss2) is littered with a lot of good old fashion eateries.
One one of our routine “what should we eat for dinner, how about just drive around till we find something?” exercise, we spotted this newly opened clay pot rice place that looked pretty decent, and thus decided to check it out.
Restaurant Gafan – the clay pot rice specialist
The restaurant has a pretty basic kopitiam style set up, with plastic tables and chairs under plenty of ceiling fans.
clay pot chicken rice with lap cheong & salted fish, or fermented tofu
There’s 10 types of clay pot rice on the menu, 6 of them with chicken, remaining four with lamb, prawn, beef, and fish. They also offer a few types of vegetable, soup, and tofu to go with the main course.
I tried the basic clay pot chicken rice with lap cheong (with addition of salted fish) and also chicken with fermented tofu at this place, and so far both versions came out rather good (RM 7-10 per serving). I also like the fact that they give you a tower towel to hold the super hot clay pot.

Do try the steamed soup (RM 4) here too. They are quite delicious, and sipping soup makes waiting for the freshly cooked clay pot rice a lot less boring.
Business is still pretty slow (at least at dinner time) but I do hope this place stays. Other clay pot chicken rice worth checking out includes Hong Kee at Petaling Street, Busy Corner and Khoon Kee at DJ, and Veng Soon at Old Town.
