Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei Claypot Laksa Mentions

Can you tell which Claypot Laksa attained the Michelin Bib Gourmand Award for consecutive years? 😂 . There are two Claypot Laksa outlets with "Depot" in their names: Famous Depot 108 Claypot Laksa, located in Depot Heights Shopping Centre, and Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei Claypot Laksa, located in Alexandra Village Food Centre. The latter has been included in the Michelin Bib Gourmand Award for 3 years (2016 to 2018). We do not know if the two stalls are related 🤔 . We first reviewed Famous Depot 108 Claypot Laksa. The operators have replaced Prawns with Shredded Chicken, which we are totally alright with. The Laksa was served in an extremely hot claypot, and the gravy is bubbling intensely. It is a beautiful sight to see chilli oil on the Laksa gravy foam. The colour of the foam also seems to indicate a gravy that is rich in Coconut. Blood Cockles rest gently on the contents of the Laksa, and you would have to consume them quickly to prevent overcooking in the hot claypot. Other ingredients include generous amount of Fishcakes, Tau Pok and Shredded Chicken (it more than makes up for the missing Prawns)🐔 . The Laksa gravy's texture is well balanced: it is not too thick or too runny. The taste is not too spicy, but it is very flavourful. True to its appearance, the gravy is rich in Coconut and Dried Shrimps. You could even smell the light aroma of the Coconut permeating the air around the claypot. There are lots of Dried Shrimp bits in the gravy, enhancing the overall taste of the dish. It is a very well balanced Laksa, and it costs $3.50 for a sizable portion 😍 . Next, we reviewed Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei Claypot Laksa. We bought a $5 portion because we were hungry. The claypot was placed on top of a bare melamine plate, suggesting that it was not very hot. True enough, we touched the claypot and it was not hot at all. We could probably hold onto it with our bare hands. The Laksa gravy was not bubbling. This was a huge downer. Why use a claypot when it is not even well heated? It also did not seem like the Laksa was cooked using the claypot 🤦 . To be continued in comments 🔜
