Now most of you have already tasted clay pot chicken rice, but did you know that there are ingredients other than chicken being thrown into the pot with rice and cooked the same way? Well I didn’t, not until the biofuel expert Kelvin told me about Busy Corner.

these guys are serious about their food

Busy Corner was pretty busy on the weekday night we went, but the restaurant is located in the middle of the shop row, not at the corner. At Damansara Jaya near KDU College, this place is also just a couple hundred meters from another very good clay pot chicken rice place near Atria.

For the five of us, we ordered a big Prawn clay pot rice, a big Beef clay pot rice, and a small Chicken clay pot rice. A couple plates of boiled bean sprouts and lettuce served as the provider of vitamin C and iron, and we ordered some pretty good herbal soups too.

The prawn clay pot was pretty different from what we have accustomed to, they are completely shelled and cooked in something akin to Thai sauce, a little spicy, but not overly done. I like the fact that the meat on our black pepper beef clay pot was not overly cooked, making them still succulent to the bite. As for the chicken, it was on par with the other places I have reviewed on this blog. All three main dishes came with raw onion on top, which was a pretty unique touch.

The steamed soup we ordered were pretty good too. I noticed little chunks of dried scallop in my herbal chicken soup, very nice.

With the rice, soup, vegetables, and drinks, it came to slightly over RM 17 per person. Not on the very cheap side, but certainly not overly expensive considering what we ordered.

One of the restaurant that I frequent whenever feeling like eating something not particulary heavy or spicy is the fishball noodle soup by Atria, at Damansara Jaya. The shop is called “Kedai Makan Teow Chew”, which bears no hint on what they serve at all. However, the cooking station that is much like a hawker stall sits right at the entrance, so you can’t miss it.

The restaurant is set up much like a one-stall kopitiam, the biggest difference is that it is air conditioned. Though without a door, the air conditioning mainly prevents hungry ghosts from dying of heat rather than creating a really cozy environment. No complaints there though.

Fishball noodle soup is actually the most basic dish they serve. Instead of fishball, you can always choose to have oyster, yong tou fu, pomphret, big prawns, and even abalone (not exactly sure if they really have it) as the main ingredient. They also serve mee hun, mee suah, and kuih teow other than noodle. You get to choose if you want your noodle (or mee hun, etc) to be served dry, or together with the main ingredient in the soup.

Their fishball has a really nice and bouncy texture while tasting pretty good too. The other item that you must try is the fish cake. They fry it fresh and serves hot, I have seen people ordering quite alot of those raw for take-away to party and stuff. Tastes great. The restaurant is a couple ringgit pricier than similiar dish at a normal kopitiam, but the slightly better environment and tastes make up for it.
