Was at IMM and revisited this place. The crowds was less as in start of hours of lunch hours. Ordered their lunch combo consists of 3 Claypot disk. The curry fish head which was there signature disk ( Maybe ) , Claypot eggs and vegetables. Add on popcorn chicken etc. The drink and rice are free flow during ordering.

Serving of quite fast this time about 10mins. I liked the fish head for it is slightly spicy. Good for everyone. Gravy is piping hot due to gas cooker at bottom. It also have some vegetables toppling and fish is fresh. The Claypot eggs and chicken popcorn is quite normal. But for those children possibly they would like this popcorn chicken as comes in smaller portion and easy bites. Crushing for taste. Add on sambal siting Claypot, served quite hot but not that spicy for my liking. The Sotong is tender with sambal thick graves. Not for spicy lover I think.

Drinks have vary soft drinks and hot coffee too.

The environment is cool as decoration is very cultural and old times style. Ha.
Like it in a modem mall.

Pillar in front of the shop was eye-catching with its oscillating barber poles and Neon lighting. It's hard to walk pass without turning our head towards that direction.

Enjoy a twist in the time machine as we walked into the rustic environment of POT LUCK accompanied by their 'Tao Jie' our 'Mah Jie'. Settings were authentic with formica chairs and tables arranged in the dining area. Into the shop and by the sides, customers get to experience the old looking stretch of shops with Peranakan tilings. The entire area was as good as those olden days that we had seen on the TV.

Copies of newspaper was placed on the table. Wait, do not mistaken these copies as the daily newspaper. The piece of thin and flimsy paper is where we get to choose our food from - the menu.

A condiments rack was prepared on every table with ordering slips. The ordering system goes like this: Filled up the slip, proceed to the cashier for payment and wait to be served by Ah Huat, their 'rickshaw boy' or even Ali their 'Satay Man'. POT LUCK had also introduced the free flow of drinks (hot / cold) at $2.80 each, as well as rice at $1.50 per pax, these can be self help at the self-service station together with the cutlery.

Look at the corner of the dining table. Your table is specially "CHOPE!" by one of their crews (Ali, Ah Huat, Ah Foong,, Tao jie, Mah Jie or Muthu). Looks Cute right?

Taste the Claypot Cabbage with Mushroom! Simply brought me back to the good old days! The cabbages were sweet & half braised, therefore one can actually enjoy the best of both world, a crunchy & soft bite. Though a simple dish, it was made different by using better quality mushrooms.
Cost: $5.60

Searching for the "Wok hei" tastes of from a Claypot Hor Fun? Yes, Potluck Hor Fun did have the Charred smell but it was not that intensive as I would have thought. Standard is abit higher than average and would serve as a great replacement to the plain white rice.
Cost: $5.90

I'm quite comfortable with the amount paid. As compared to a normal Zi Char Stall, some of the prices are on pile while some of them were about the same. Factor in its service and air conditioned environment, having Zi Char in Pot Luck isn't a bad choice either.

Side Notes:
(1) 10% of Service Charge is not required.
(2) Be careful & Keep your hands away from the burning hot claypot, I'm scalded and it had left an ugly mark on my hand.

This restaurant is still open for business and have been wanting to try out their food. What attracts me is their interior which is so nostalgia on first look. The most interesting will be their menu as it comes in a form of newspaper. I think basically think is quite creative. The whole concept of their restaurant seems like bringing you back to the 50s to 70s of Singapore with those big advertisement boards, old posters and so on.

There is no service charge here at Potluck, which means you pay at the cashier first to get your one-time utensils, then get your drinks, rice and condiments then sit back and wait for your main course to be served. It is a free flow of drinks and rice but you have to pay for $1.50 per pax for rice and $2.80 per pax for drinks. This is a little pricey and if you are calculative like me, it is actually not free flow anymore. I don't like this idea. To me, their service charge has been somehow priced through this free flow thing. I doubt anyone will be having more than 3 bowls of rice and the selection of their drinks are so limited to sugarcane, calamansi, coffee and water.

Aside from the negative facts, their food are commendable. They are served in claypot and there is this thing that is meant to hold the claypot rather than those which you see at food courts or food centres where they used those conventional straw kind of holder for claypot.

Sesame Oil Chicken - Recommended ($7.90)

Even before you tuck in, the smell is so alluring when it is served. I must say that the chicken has been properly braised with the absorption of the sauce. The texture is soft and tender that the meat can be tear apart easily. And somehow with every bite, the sauce will burst out from it. I just can't stop eating because it is so appetizing with the sauce drizzled on the rice. One mouthful after another, the whole pot is finished up to the bottom.

Sambal Sotong & Black Pepper Sotong ($9.90)

Due to my blurness, I ordered two sotong dishes of different flavours. Supposed to get Sambal prawns. But nevertheless, it is hot! The spicy level of sambal sotong is just right. It is actually the one that opens up my appetite for the night. I can't say that the black pepper one is not spicy enough but the spiciness actually comes from the pepper used. So is kind of different. The sotong (both sambal and black pepper) are tender and chewy. By the way, I'm a sotong lover. I cannot resist the temptation of sotong, be it fried, grilled and so on. It is a night of sotong intoxication.

There are lots more variety of claypots and we have already picked our choice and Sesame Oil Chicken is like a must to eat even for our next visit. Just a suggestion. I probably think that this is a place which you can actually bring your folks for meals because is all about claypot and not those fanciful stuff which they might not know how to eat. And because of the design, they might be able to tell you more stories about the old Singapore they have seen.

This is one of the restaurant opened under the Soup Restaurant group. The 3 "sister" restaurants are actually situated next to each other in IMM. You get the most expensive one (Soup Restaurant), the average cost one (Pot Luck) and then Café O. You can actually have your 3 meals there too! For breakfast, try the Cafe O for roti prata, etc. for lunch you can frequent the pot luck store which serves a variety of different dishes and then have dinner at Soup Restaurant!

This is one of the restaurant opened under the Soup Restaurant group. The 3 "sister" restaurants are actually situated next to each other in IMM. You get the most expensive one (Soup Restaurant), the average cost one (Pot Luck) and then Café O. You can actually have your 3 meals there too! For breakfast, try the Cafe O for roti prata, etc. for lunch you can frequent the pot luck store which serves a variety of different dishes and then have dinner at Soup Restaurant! Pretty cool concept huh!

So let's start with the review for potluck! this new establishment at imm seems to be a hot favourite as you can see long lines being formed during the lunch/dinner hours.
I believe what attracts most is that they have free flow drinks ($2.80) and free flow rice ($1.50). However, on hindsight, unless you're a really big eater, this may be seen as more expensive than cheap as they discourage sharing of food so if you calculate, you actually have to poslish off 3 bowls of rice before the price is about $0.50 per bowl of rice.
Before ordering, you may want to consider this economical point!

We ordered this curry fish head for $17.90 as it seems to be the best-selling and it's a chef recommendation. They even framed it up and put it as perhaps a permanent promotion item (U.P $23). I smell a marketing gimmick! (which I gladly fell into as the picture looks really enticing!)

This dish came in a hot pot (Extremely hot pot! Please be careful when handling!) and was exactly like the picture being advertised. The aromatic curry hits your nose and you came feel your mouth watering. I wasted no time in piling the curry onto my rice and quickly dug in.
I think the fish should've went through some QC as it was still really scaly, making it a hassle to eat as you have to slowly remove the scales as you eat.
If without the scales, this is definitely a very fantastic dish as the curry was thick enough and the fish was really fresh!

Looking around, I saw many other dishes that were being served out and most if not all, you could see the steam rising from each hot pot! This is definitely one place I'm going back to!

Potluck is a new restaurant opened by the same boss as Soup Restaurant. You can expect decent food, knowing that Potluck is under the same company. This eatery adopts a very 60s-style Singaporean coffeeshop concept. I'm sure the older generation would feel nostalgic just looking at the design of the store.

The free-flow rice costs $1.50 which, in my opinion, is rather pricy. Zi char stalls usually serve rice for 50 cents and one portion is enough for one person. Even though the concept here is that the rice is free-flow, I doubt an average-sized person can consume up to 3 bowls of rice. The rice is also not that great, turns soft and mushy when it comes into contact with gravy.

We ordered the Claypot Cabbage with Mushroom ($5.90). I loved this dish! It brought back memories of childhood~ The cabbage was cooked till it was soft and there were bits of tung hoon in the gravy. Portion was too little for about 4 people but we had other dishes.

We also had the Curry Fish Head ($17.90). There is a framed picture on the wall that states that the usual price of the fish head is $23 which is so expensive! The $17.90 price is apparently a promotion but I doubt so since the picture looks as though the company put much thought into designing and framing it. The meat was soft but the fish was not cleaned enough as we found many fish scales on them. However, the broth was its saviour as it was not too spicy and it had a thick consistency. Perfect addition to white rice.

Lastly, the Claypot Carrot Beef Brisket ($10.90). The carrots in this dish were more like radish instead. The radishes were really soft and flavourful. Biting into one, you can taste the beef gravy and it practically melts in your mouth. The beef, however, were not all broiled consistently as some were softer than others. Overall still a pleasant dish.

I would recommend this place for affordable zi char food (avoid the fish head curry because you can find cheaper ones in other places). The decor is also nice enough for people to step foot in just because of the design of the place. This eatery is tucked between Soup Restaurant and another eatery under the same company that also has the concept of a Singaporean coffeeshop, but serving coffee, toast and prata. Go slightly earlier to avoid having to queue during lunch/dinnertime.

There is free flow drink and rice, provided that you pay $2.80 (no sharing) for drinks and $1.50 for rice. I must emphasize that patrons should not abuse such a wonderful service in trusting us not to take more than we can eat or drink. The way they decorate the self-service station makes me volunteer to want to go and get my own stuff over and over again! *grins*

Pot luck, as the name suggests, is where you can order lots of different types of food that is similar to Zi Char at only $7.90. Please DO NOT BE DECEIVED by the photos that they've show in the menu. I thought it was quite a huge portion BUT NOOOO.. it's so little. Anyway I ordered tofu, and it's delicious, I can just eat this way without rice.

This chicken cost about $5.90, and if you come during tea-time, you can get free flow drinks/rice and an appetiser for $4.90. Top up $1 and you get salmon. It's extremely worth it, isn't it?

The chilli ran out quite quickly, it's TOM YUM chilli *hooray*! If you're a true blue Singaporean, do come and try Potluck at IMM! It's not very crowded too!

It is a good concept after I finished my meal as we would be having quite a lot of rice to go with their delicious and thick curry and assam sauce ;D

First dish I tried was the prawn paste chicken. It is crispy and has a strong fragrant spicing flavor.

Next up is the Claypot Bee Hoon. It is nice and the flavor is strong and just right. The taste of the soup is rich and flavoursome. The bee hoon is nicely cooked to the right texture and retains a ‘QQ’ texture ;D

What I love most is their Assam Stingray where the assam taste is deep within the fish meat.

The assam taste is sour and sweet, and not too spicy. The sourness is really appetizing and pleasing to the taste.

Although it is sour but the taste is balanced with the slight spiciness and also the freshness of the fish.

The gravy is thick and goes really well with the white rice. We had a few rounds of rice just to have this assam ;D

It isn’t too salty either.

The curry is thick and nice too. The dishes here are not too spicy and the flavours are appropriately balanced.

The curry chicken meat is tender but they use chicken breast meat which I don’t really like.

Other than this I have nothing much to pick about it.

Would definitely be back to have their Assam stingray, Prawn paste chicken and Claypot bee hoon. Probably try out other dishes as well


The price is acceptable and considerably affordable too. A relatively economic price for a fulfilling and delicious meal at a restaurant ;D
