Claypots and Chandeliers

One of the things that make me happy is finding small, amazing restaurants tucked away in a corner somewhere and I'm glad to see a growing number of these cozy little treasures around Cebu. 

Just beside Shamrock in Capitol, you'll find One Claypot House. It might look very simple outside but the restaurant's interior will surely impress you. Decorated with a 1950's Black and White Vintage Chic theme, this restaurant has character. I just love that feeling when you walk in and be surprised with the elegantly designed interiors.

Now let's talk about the food. In contrast to the western feel of the place, One Claypot House serves dishes from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and of course, the Philippines. 

We ordered their best seller, the Lah-lah-lah Claypot Rice. It's available in three sizes, Small (150pesos), Medium (250pesos) and Large (350pesos). The rice is cooked in the claypot itself and topped with Chicken, Pork, Sausage, Egg and Salted Fish flavor with a dark soy sauce. Chester and I decided to get the medium size for both of us. Quite heavy for an afternoon merienda but we wanted to try something different. The Chicken and Pork were thoroughly cooked and we loved the fragrant blend of all the different flavors in this dish. 

Merienda Time!

Total wipe out. Nom-nom-nom!

I also got to try their Milky Bandung (50pesos). Popular in Malaysia and Singapore, it's milk flavored with Rose syrup. So good, I was drinking Roses. Hehe.

Beautifully colored Pink!

One Claypot House was easily a favorite. The elegant but cozy atmosphere was a great plus too!
