When I was a poor student back then, I could only afford chocolates which my mom loves nibbling on. But this year, I really wanted to give her a special treat and I hope that in many years to come, I would be able to celebrate Mother’s Day with her and the family over a good meal.
I was invited to try out a Mothers’ Day Set Meal Menu at A-ONE Claypot House and I brought my family members along. They had different set dinners catered to different number of people. Since there were only 4 of us, we had a set dinner for 4 pax. I also requested for some vegetarian dishes since I wouldn’t be able to taste most of the food menu. Instead, my family members will taste on my behalf.
We tried the outlet at Sports Hub and by 7.00pm, the tables were all filled up. But thank goodness, we made an early reservation to beat the dinner crowd. While we were there, we noticed that many of them came here for the claypot porridge which supposedly their signature dishes here. It was such a pity that we didn’t get to try it as we were so full after having out Mother’s Day set meal.
Assorted Dried Fruits Tea
This sugarless herbal infusion tea has a sweet fruit taste and it tasted really pleasant. I guess it would go really well with the Chinese stir-fry dishes or claypot porridge. In fact, they also served a variety of beverages from fizzy drinks, soda to teas. It is somewhat restaurant-like type of eatery that is particular in terms of the presentation of their food.
Crab Meat and Fish Maw Shark’s Fin Soup
According to my mother, it quite tasty and my father, being the fish-lover, enjoys eating the fish maw in the soup.
Scallop Fried with Lotus Root and Asparagus
This stir-fry dish was nicely done and it would go well with a bowl of rice.
Rock Sugar Honey Pork
Instead of sweet and sour pork, I guessed they went for something different this time – rock sugar honey pork. The lean pork slices were thin though but it was sufficient for my family who isn’t really into eating meat these days.
Golden Prawns in Creamy Salted Egg Sauce
My brother said that this dish was quite interesting because of the presence of the salted egg that gives the prawns unique texture.
Longevity Noodle with Sesame Oil Chicken
It was really gracious of them to offer me some vegetarian choices while I dine there with my family members who were non-vegetarians. Thank goodness that there are a couple of vegetarian choices here at A-One Claypot House. Here are the 2 dishes which I ordered!
