Find out from our experience at the Paya Lebar branch of Lau Wang Claypot Delights.
Food At Lau Wang Claypot Delights
We ordered a mix of different dishes:
These included herbal chicken soup and one Mala claypot. And even though we got the small sized portion of the herbal chicken soup (at SGD 7.30), it is enough for 2 to 3 pax eaters to share.
One thing that really surprised us was the generous portion of fish for the dish featuring sliced fish and bitter gourd. That cost SGD 6.50. Meanwhile, the tofu with salted fish and French beans was nothing remarkable.
Our favorite dish by far, was the Mala chicken mix (At SGD 9.30) – it’s a good compromise for spiciness (i.e. not too spicy) and authentic Chinese-style Mala.
Note: You can get the super mala option if you want yours to be very spicy!
Overall, the food is satisfactory:
You should note that some of the meat dishes (e.g., sesame oil chicken) and the herbal soups at Lau Wang Claypot Delights are not as potent as they could be.
