Dinner was at this no frills eatery famous for its claypot rice and oyster omelette.

The Chicken with Rice Claypot (HKD$18/SGD$3.20) looked very plain but my mom said that it’s very fragrant and nice.

The Chicken and Chinese Sausage with Rice Claypot (HKD$23/SGD$4.20) looked somewhat similar to the previous one. According to my parents, the rice that sticks to the bottom of the pot is the most aromatic and tasty part of the whole dish.

I like the Oyster Omelette (HKD$20/SGD$3.60). We only ordered the small size and it came with 3 huge slices! The oysters are big and fresh. This is very cheap and good.

The White Eel Claypot (HKD$60/SGD$10.90) has a lot of slices of eel in it. The onions, orange skin and gingers mask the fishy smell of the eel very well. As I ate this without any rice, it was too salty for my liking.

This place has been featured in many magazines and newspapers (both local and overseas) for its claypot rice and oyster omelettes.

The staff here is very friendly and they kept laughing when I took the photos of the place and food. They told us that business is so good that they have expanded to include the shops besides the main shop.

The location is very convenient for a quick repast from shopping at the nearby Temple Street night market.

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
