It was a bit of an effort getting to Heun Kee but I wanted to try what is regarded as the best claypot chicken in KL.

Anyway, i was the first customer in the shop right on 11am. I decided on the claypot chicken with drumsticks, a plate of kailan and an appetizer of chicken wings.

I really enjoyed the meal. The claypot chicken had this crust on it that was crunchy and tasty. Seeing the two cooks out the front of the restaurant plying their trade with the claypots being cooked on rustic charcoal stoves was great.

I’m sure I will be back again!

Before you read further, if you have already made up your mind to go down to this place, for goodness sake call & make a booking on your time & day of arrival. Else be prepared to wait one to one half hours!
This family operated restaurant is one of those few old school claypot chicken rice that still uses charcoal to fire up the claypot. Chicken parts are very well marinated- you can taste it down to the bone, and everything is cooked from scratch.
Other dishes worth trying is their fried chicken wings, innards soup & salted fish bean sprouts.
If you pre-order, wait time is between 20-30 mins.
Worth a visit!

Charcoal cooked clay pot chicken rice
So blessed to have these pics with the lady boss.... a humbling experience listening to her story about how she kept her busy going for 30+ years using only the best ingredients and honest ethics.

We had the chicken clay pot rice with extra Chinese sausage. Watercress soup, and pak choy. All were amazing. The chicken in the rice falls apart, it is so tender and has yum seasoning. Soup had chicken in it, and chicken feet, and the flavour was very good. The vegetables still had some crunch and were not stringy like I have had before. So so good. RM50 for all of that food + 2 drinks. Great value.
