Hong Kong/ Yau Ma Tei – Braised Rice in Claypot
By TraNews Reporter Chiu, Wei-Cheng
TAICHUNG, TAIWAN (TraNews) – Temple Street is a characteristic shopping street located in the areas of Jordon and Yau Ma Tei in Kowloon. It is well-known for its night market establishment. Heavily visited by tourists and locals alike in the evening, Temple Street Night Market is also famous for its snack food, making it a perfect place for tasting local delicacies.
Located on Temple Street, Hing Kee Restaurant has enjoyed great popularity for over twenty years. The restaurant is famed for specializing in a tempting array of braised rice in claypot choices. Traditionally, the cooking is done over a charcoal oven, giving the dish a unique flavor. Typically the rice is cooked in the claypot first, and then cooked ingredients, like beef, diced chicken, marinated pork ribs, Cantonese sausage, barbecued pork, etc., are added later.
Due to the time-consuming method of preparation and claypot cooking, customers usually have to wait for a while before the dish is ready to be served. The moment customers remove the lid they would be mesmerized by the nose-pleasing aroma of elaborately prepared rice in claypot. At present, Hing Kee Restaurant serves a vast selection of claypot rice dishes to delight customers’ cravings.
