Claypot chicken rice (RM 6, small) has always been our old favorite. It is amazing that how the simplest of ingredients are transformed into something such amazing one pot meal! Busy Corner’s version sans the appearance of lap cheong (Chinese was sausages) is quite a let down. Despite the rice being soft and fluffy, the chicken pieces were tough and dry.
Our claypot prawn rice (RM 13, small) came sizzling hot with a generous serving of de shelled prawns, a good sprinkling of raw onions and drizzles spicy sour sauce on top. Give it a good stir and voila! You get a great combination of soft and fluffy rice coated evenly with the spicy sour gravy, half cooked onion and fresh succulent prawns.

Now let us turn to another claypot chicken rice place, Koon Kee, located just a few streets away from Busy Corner.
Koon Kee is a no frills claypot chicken rice place with limited choices of soupy dish. Their pork stomach soup is very peppery that gives an extra kick to it, just the way I like it.
The claypot chicken rice comes with lap cheong that added some sweetness to the rice, not forgetting the intense and pungent smelling salted fish too. I love srapping for the thin layer of crispy rice crust that’s adhered to the bottom of the claypot. My parents has been telling me that those who love crispy rice crust are very stubborn people. Have you guys ever heard of that?
For one pot meal that comes in a reasonable price tag, Koon Kee and Busy Corner is the place to go. We wouldn’t mind returning to try out the other varieties of claypot rice at Busy Corner, which added a nice twist to the usual chicken rice. However, for a minimal meal of claypot chicken rice, we would still prefer Koon Kee.
