    Great Taste also has clay pot rice. However, last time I checked, they are only listed in Chinese (posted on the walls), not in the menus. They offer at least 4-5 different versions, including the traditional preserved duck/Chinese sausage clay pot rice, as well as a frog clay pot rice.

      If you're looking for the frog variety, I have seen grannies getting it at Peach Farm, and the smell of garlic going by always makes me weak in the knees...

        Here's an old post about Pearl Villa.


        Fukui San, what types of claypot rice do they have?

        i have seen people at Best Little restaurant getting a claypot rice that is not on the menu, some sort of deluxe jumbo combo with several types of meat...maybe ask them for their "house special" claypot rice...also the casserole i had at Hong Kong Eatery had nice crispy rice on the bottoms (more iron pot than claypot actually)

          most of the cantonese places have this. I recall a nice version at Hong Kong Eatery.
