Beo Crescent Market is a relatively small food centre but the options are plenty, from lor mee to fish soup and fried rice. If you're having a craving for some claypot rice, head to the crowd-favourite (and simply-named) Cantonese Claypot Rice, where they sell fairly affordable dishes like claypot rice and herbal soups below $6.

Keeping it simple, I went for the claypot chicken rice ($4.30). Despite the lunchtime crowd, I didn't have to wait too long for my order.

They also serve other claypot rice options like sliced fish, pork ribs and sausage bacon for variety.

For $4.30, I thought the generous portion was pretty value-for-money. Aside from large chunks of chicken, there are also standard ingredients like lup cheong, salted fish and some cabbage.

I thought there was a good amount of sauce coated on the rice, and liked that the grains were a nice texture and not clumpy. I could taste the smokiness from the rice, but I found that the sauce was lacking any bold and deep flavours I would have liked.

I enjoyed how chunky and meaty the chicken was, and there was enough of them to fill me up. The meat was tender and lip-smacking, but I was a bit disappointed that it didn't really absorb the flavours of the sauce.

The lup cheong pieces were quite tiny, but they did add savouriness and sweetness to the dish. I also found some pieces of salted fish tucked away at the corner, and they definitely added an extra oomph to the rice. 

While I would have liked the rice to be more flavourful to really hit the spot, and perhaps more flavour within the chicken, I thought this was overall a pretty value-for-money meal. If you're dining with a friend, pairing their claypot rice with some herbal soup sounds like a comforting and filling meal!
