Like the name suggests, this Cantonese restaurant serves many dishes in traditional clay pots, the perfect vehicle for maximizing flavor and distributing heat and moisture. Order the eggplant with garlic and ginger, and the lobster with vermicelli – both of which are cooked to a perfect texture. They also serve plenty of delicious non-clay pot dishes, from steamed pork with salted fish to bitter melon with frog. The atmosphere is homey and relaxed (carpeted floors and simple, elegant decor including red lanterns and Chinese paintings) – which is especially great for a casual lunch when rice plates like curry chicken or oxtail with mushrooms run under $10.
