(Rice set with 2 side dishes – RM 26.90)

A la Carte – RM 22.90

Served in the hot pot is the traditional 3-Cups Chicken (San Bei Ji). The unique name is called 3 cups chicken because traditionally the dish is cooked with 3 cups or parts: 1 cup of sesame oil, 1 cup of rice wine  and 1 cup of soy sauce thus the ‘3 cups’.  This would be a favourite dish because the flavors pair really well together.  It’s savory, yet sweet at the same time with a slight hint of spiciness and also the fragrance of the basil leaves. The chicken texture is tender and all you’ll need is a bowl of white rice.

Every cuisine has its signature dish that’s unique, undeniably delicious, and unilaterally enjoyed by its people.  For Taiwanese cuisine,  it’s Minced Pork Stewed Rice which is Chinese-style donburi (rice covered in sauce) a home style dish of minced pork braised in rice wine, soy sauce, water, and five-spice powder until it’s soft and tender. The taste has tad of sweetness and melt in the mouth texture of meat with fried shallot on the side.

Raising from the depths of the fiery heat and epitome of spiciness or so we thought. Spicy ‘Hell-Hot’ Ramen lived up to its namesake but rather on the milder tone as the broth was manageable while taking sips after sips and having the ramen with it.

On certain rainy days, there is nothing like a good ol’ Claypot Lao Shu Fun can’t fix. We were a bit surprised with the additional bean sprout which could be their recipe but the runny egg gives the noodle smooth texture and fill every bite with fulfillment.
