Since taking over vacant possession of our new home in Shah Alam, we’ve been spending quite a bit of time inspecting defects and monitoring the construction of koi pond version 2.

With the new place just a stone’s throw away from Klang toll, we’ve started exploring the eateries nearby, such as the few rows of old school restaurants and kopitiam at Taman Berkeley, an area that’s already a favorite among the locals.

When trying out a new place, the rule of thumb is just stick with the most popular option. In a kopitiam, the most popular stall, and in a makan area like Berkeley, the restaurant that’s most packed.

Going with this rule brought us to Number One Claypot Rice, a restaurant that isn’t really overly humble on their claim.

Like most claypot chicken rice places, the rice is cooked from scratch claypots of two sizes. A single portion is priced at RM 7, and bigger, double person portion at RM 14. If there’s 5 of you, 2 big and 1 small, you do the math, it’s pretty simple.

In the pot you get plenty of bite size chicken, chunks of lap cheong (Chinese wax sausage), and a small amount of salted fish.

I find the rice and chicken pretty much spot on, with the sausage having slightly tougher skin that I’d like, and the salted fish, well, is something that I’ll need to ask for extra the next time around (you can do that for extra RM 2). The crispy bits of charred rice are there for those who love it that way.

To compliment the claypot chicken rice, we also ordered the coconut chicken soup (RM  7) and a side of braised vegetable (RM 5), there’s also option of herbal chicken soup, vegetable soup, or pork tripe soup (would be better I think!) to go around as well.

Everything came to be about RM 30 for the two of us, and the serving was certainly more than enough. Would go back again.

    If you come to the same shop for breakfast or lunch, there is a pork noddle shop which is quite good too, and you will be able to order some yong tau foo item. There is also a yau char kwai stall from opposite the road which you can pair with a cup of coffee..Yum! Other than that, if you are a fan of porridge i would like to recommend this aunty old stall in a food court in Taman Eng Ann. And there is quite a few of pau seller around the Eng Ann foodcourt area.
