Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice, Avenue K, Food Review

Avenue K in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is building up again. After being dormant for as long as I remember with few shops occupying, it barely draws anyone to visit it. As for me, I guess my visit to it was quite recent since Stage club opened up there with a few events going on in there. But before this, I guess it goes way back to 2009 when I went to the Quattro Club Aniversary not counting the numerous times I was downstairs where the KLCC LRT Station is to grab a bite at the food court or at Secret Recipe.

Anyway, Avenue K has sprung up a sort of high class like food court called Taste Enclave:
In it, it already has almost full occupancy of stalls and one of them is taken up by Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice:
Heun Kee Claypot has made it's name at it's restaurant in Pudu and has now expanded here over at Avenue K where the hustle and bustle of KLCC is.

Eager to try how delightful it's claypot rice can be, we patiently waited till the time arrived.

We were first given the soup of the day to warm up our appetites:
This soup is so delicious, I just wanted to drink this all day. So fortunate to have this as the soup for the day as starters. XD

Next we were given some Tofu to further whet our appetite:
I find it so-so. Guess I'm not much of a tofu fan. LOL.

We then moved on to their signature Claypot Chicken Rice:
Priced at RM16 for regular and RM24 for large, add in some garlic vinegar sauce to level up the taste.
The way that they do their claypot rice is using the top bottom method where the charcoals are not only heating up from the bottom but also from the top.
This ensures an all rounded way of heating.

Another appetizer that came our way are the Fried Chicken Wings:
For the price of RM10, it comes with 4 pieces. A little bit on the oily side for me but tasted okay.

Another Claypot Rice that we tasted is the Lap Mei Fan (Claypot Wax Duck):
This ones seasonal though so if the Duck Liver Sausage is not in season, then this dish would not be available. Priced at RM18 for regular and RM38 for large, this one tasted good. The Duck Liver Sausage provided the saltish taste towards the claypot rice and goes well with it.

And finally, we were given the opportunity to try their Thai Tofu:
The sauce on top may look reddish but is not spicy and the nuts on top provided some crunch to it.

This Heun Kee 2nd Outlet is located at Avenue K's Taste Enclave - Level 2. Opened daily since it's considered as a mall.
