Batu Pahat Eat: Long Yee Claypot Chicken Rice (龍憶瓦煲鸡饭)
Batu Pahat's "Glutton Street" is located along Jalan Pengkai in Kampung Pegawai. It technically operates at night but some stalls do open in the day. Long Yee (龍憶) is one of the few stalls that opens just before lunch time. It sells "old-taste" claypot chicken rice (瓦煲鸡饭) and claypot yee mee (瓦煲伊面) and is popular among the locals.
Long Yee's claypot chicken rice (RM8) has pieces of tender chicken meat and slices of Chinese sausage atop claypot-cooked rice and drizzled with a dark sauce and chopped spring onions. A small dish of powdered salted fish is served separately and diners can opt to add it to the chicken rice or not. Mix the meat, rice and salted fish powder thoroughly before eating and experience the "old-taste". It is delicious.
The claypot yee mee (RM7) is served bubbling hot with slices of big mushroom, a couple of fishballs and an egg. It is simple and a nice alternative to the claypot chicken rice.
Long Yee is located right outside Sin Sin Foodstuff, a popular store selling delicious Hokkien, Teochew and nyonya kuehs and many native products. Dining at Long Yee and buying local products from Sin Sin is killing two birds with one stone.
