A-One Claypot House @ Kallang Wave

A-One Claypot had very humble beginnings, starting off in a coffeeshop in the days of 2008 and expanding till it has a number of restaurants under its group. Kallang Wave Mall as obscure as it was, was considerably filled thanks to Groupon once again and we bargain hunters were in for a good time, hopefully!

We deliberately picked Chef's recommendations to get a better idea of their signatures.

Peanuts ($3.80)

I have an issue with canned peanuts, that cloying sweet aftertaste that leaves little to be desired after. Thankfully theirs were homecooked and actually really delicious to nibble on as starters.

Premium Dried Scallop Porridge ($12.90)

Portions are good enough for 2 if it's just porridge alone but with the array of dishes ordered, it was more than enough for 4. Not quite the sampan congee that Hongkong restaurants are famous for. Infact, I thought this was just ordinary porridge with fried white bait, fish, braised peanuts, squid and dough sticks.

Claypot Rice with Chicken and Mushroom ($12.90)

While the porridge was average, the claypot rice was equally average with rice served in a claypot and a ton of ingredients on top. Lacking in claypot fragrance and oomph, very ordinary at best.

Steamed Seabass Teochew Style ($21.80)

Almost tasteless despite the usage of plums, mushrooms and even sliced chilli in this Teochew classic.

Sliced Pork with Creamy Salted Egg Sauce ($21.80)

The salted egg sauce was delicious though the sliced breaded pork slices were already soggy. One of the more memorable dishes from the meal.

Assorted Vegetables in Sambal Sauce ($14.90)

Stir Fried Broccoli with Assorted Mushrooms ($14.90)

Things were looking  better with the stir fry vegetable dishes with enough wok hei and were decently crunchy after all the textures that went wrong in the other dishes.

Mediocre food in a mall, once is sufficient for me.
