The Claypot at the End of the Rainbow

Explore the backstreets of the city and discover pots of gold. In this case, we discovered a pot of clay: One Claypot House.The Claypot at the End of the RainbowThe Claypot at the End of the Rainbow
One Claypot House is a tiny restaurant that can accommodate about twenty people. You can't throw your eighteenth birthday bash here unless you want to feel like it's rush hour on the subway. And if you feel like going to the loo, you have to hold it in or go next door, for this House lacks a toilet. Parking space is also nonexistent so leave your car at home. Other than that, this is an intimate little cube of a place.The Claypot at the End of the Rainbow The Claypot at the End of the Rainbow
There's less than a dozen items on the menu which spares me the headache of having to choose from so many delicious sounding offerings.The Claypot at the End of the RainbowThe Claypot at the End of the RainbowWe chose the first three things on the menu: Lah-lah-lah claypot, Sawasdee noodle salad, and prawn paste soup.
The Sawasdee noodle salad is cold noodles with veggies, shrimps, and squid. It is spicy and a bit sour. I prefer my noodles hot but this is an exception. Delicious!The Claypot at the End of the Rainbow
The prawn paste soup has chicken and prawn, and is a bit spicy. My tongue was expecting it to be like tom yum goong (my favorite) so I was disappointed. It was nothing like it. Yes, blame it on my expectations.The Claypot at the End of the Rainbow
Of course we had to have the Lah-lah-lah claypot. We were in One Claypot House after all. (Is it called One Claypot House because they only offer one claypot dish?) This one I especially liked. It has rice with chicken, pork, egg, and chinese sausage. Server says it's good for one. I say it's good for me and my date. The Claypot at the End of the RainbowThe Claypot at the End of the Rainbow
