To Singaporeans looking for a good meal in JB via second link (because Woodlands is so crowded and jammed up). You can look up Claytisfy. Pardon the silly name but the clay pot rice is one hot delicious meal. I arrived in Johor Bahru when it was a cool rainy evening. And clay pot seemed like the perfect thing to have.
The restaurant only has 3 main varieties to offer. Clay pot chicken rice or clay pot sliced pork with salted fish or the claytisfy’s own signature chicken in clay pot. And flip the menu over you’ll see about 4 different vegetables to help your digestion of those carbs.
The food takes 15-20 minutes to prepare, so don’t arrive hungry and grumpily impatient. The food is relatively good for JB standard, where coffee shops and restaurants thrive on Sg inbound very non-discerning taste buds. A lot of the bullshit JB restaurants put out there is utter crap. Seriously.
So if you’re passing by JB or Bukit Indah area next time. Do check out Claytisfy. Address: no 24, Jalan Indah 8/15, 81200 Johor Bahru, Johor Malaysia.
Verdict: They do one thing, and do it well. Everything is well flavored and clay pot rice is grainy and technically ‘al dente’ (the way claypot cooked rice should be. Ask them to throw in the salted fish when they help you mix the rice (before serving). It needs that bit of saltiness and strong flavor, IMHO. Generous helping of chicken in the rice. And they say the medium pot serves 2 person. But these 2 persons had better be really hungry big-eaters.
