Xinxin Traditional Claypot Rice : by the Gen Y hawkers

We went looking for this stall that is serving Claypot Rice at Kovan Food Centre, it took us a while to locate it as it is located at the last row, right behind. And, it was a bit disturbing that one of the younger owners was standing outside the stall awaiting customers when this food centre was quite packed during lunch on a Sunday. I ordered it a few times during the Circuit Breaker period through delivery. I was amazed by the tenderness of those chicken pieces when I tasted it for the first time, it was not just soft but flavorful too. 

I got to know about this stall from Martin, a friend on Facebook. It was recommended by Kai, a partner of Roast Paradise. 

This stall is manned by 2 youngsters, they did it through numerous experiments to get the recipe right. I ordered the portion for 2 to share. I was asked for the table number as it will be served to the table later but told to help myself with the condiments, bowls, spoons, and chopsticks. I waited for about 15 minutes before it was served.

It was served with a generous portion of chunky chicken pieces with Chinese Sausages garnished with chopped spring onion, the rice was drizzled with dark soy sauce. To start, gave it a quick stir to mix everything together. 

My dining companion tasted it and said, "Somehow, I felt it tasted better when it was delivered." It still tasted good though, there was a nice layer of the burnt bit right at the side and below. 

I would think this is easily better than some of those popular ones out there, even so, this might not be the best but it is good enough to keep me coming back.
