Claypot Station Restaurant @ Jalan PJU 5/12, Sunway Damansara PJ

After spending half a day scouring this area to look for lightings, Jenn & I felt hungry as it was way past lunch time. Both of us had little for breakfast earlier that morning. So we drove around Sunway Damansara area and spotted this particular restaurant.

We didn't ponder too long before deciding to try out their food because 1) we are very hungry and 2) it was about to rain. Upon entering the premise, we realised that we were the only patrons at that time... it made us wondering about the food's quality but looking at my watch, it was already 3pm (past lunch time). The decor is nothing to shout of, as everything is kept simple with the usage of wooden table and plastic chairs. They post pictures of the dishes at the restaurant's wall.

We'd decided to order two mains and one side dish...

I settled for Claypot Fa Tiu (chinese wine) chicken. I really liked the combination of fa tiu wine & dark soy sauce that smothered the chicken slice. It was good until the very last drop. A must order dish!

Jenn tried their Claypot Assam fish fillet. The hot assam curry tasted real good... not too spicy, slightly sour and good to go with rice. However, the fish fillet turned out to be a disappointment. The fillet was deep fried before served in the claypot, and it was very soft... eewwww!

Signature fried taufu - one of the best dishes! Crispy on the outside while soft and smooth on the inside. Topped with dried shrimps, spring onions, red chilly and their special sauce, it is a must try dish.

Leo's verdict - As their name suggests, claypot dishes are their specialty. Overall, the food was OK except for the fish fillet (the assam gravy was good though). All their claypot dishes come with complimentary bowl of rice. The restaurant served flavourful and warm claypot dishes and best of all, free of Ajinamoto (as so they claimed).

my mom would probably like this place, cos she's always afraid of too much salt or ajinomoto! :D

price-wise it was OK... just don't order anything that looks had been deep fried before putting into the claypot OK???

I have often passed by this place but never tried it before. Now maybe the next time round, i shd pop in but will not order the assam fish since the fillet had been fried which I also don't like!
Eh, no claypot chicken rice there?
