Came to this district to visit a hobby shop. It was lunchtime, so we just hopped into Ubi 33 Food House.
## First Impression ##
A very well-ventilated place with big ceiling fans. Bright-colored settings with neat & clean tables. No sight of any pests (birds, cockroaches & flies) in the dining area. The walkways were very spacious even though the tables & benches were fastened onto the floor (same as every other eatery in the country).
## Stall-front ##
We decided to order from the "Claypot Delight" stall, as many customers seemed to be enjoying their clay-pot dishes very much.
There were 20 photos of their food dishes displayed overhead. Each photo was tagged with a number, price & their names in both Chinese & English. That was very thoughtful.
I ordered #12 & #15 and was requested politely to take a seat. That was a pleasant surprise!
## The Food ##
The food were served pretty fast...another positive point!
Two claypot dishes, two heaped bowl of rice only cost $9.50…add points again!
The Claypot Chicken Cube 砂煲宫保鸡 ～
It might look oily when served but it certainly was not. This dish was piping hot & flavorful. The meat was tender & well-marinated. The lightly scalded spring onions complimented nicely. We wanted to find fault for it not being spicy enough but chili sauce was served alongside, albeit watery. Anyway, we scooped the claypot clean. So, it was actually a good dish.
I'm still tantalized by the fragrance…
The Pig Trotters Vinegar 砂煲猪脚醋 ～
Chinese ladies could only sampled this tonic dish during their confinement after giving birth.
The claypot was sizzling!
It's content piping hot!
This black vinegar soup was sweet, a little gingery but soothing like jello down the throat.
This was the feeling I had years ago during my confinement!
The whole piece of old ginger was crushed & cooked till tender. It was effortlessly chewed & swallowed!
Must had been painstakingly boiled for a very long time… 👍
I had tasted a few versions of this dish around. Then I chose to only eat the lean meat as the fatty part (of most stalls) was too oily for my palate.
This was bouncy on every bite but tender enough for the very old, too!
I will be back!
I will definitely be back for this gingerly heaven.
