The beauty of claypot cooking is the holding of moisture without over cooking or burning the food. It is one of the most elegant gourmet dishes and can be enjoyed over lunch or dinner. Choose a claypot the next time you dine in with us. Pair it with our house wine and you will see the subtleties in the tastes and aromas.

For those who enjoy a hearty bit of pork, this Chinese braised pork belly concoction is worthy of a meal for one, not on account of the portion, but because after one bite, you will want this steamy hot pot all to yourself. And it has been common practice for patrons to mop up all those succulent juices that make this dish special.

What makes our version distinct is the dark, rich gravy with hints of star anise and ginger – braised and stewed for hours with the pork to achieve perfect balance of flavour. Five spices delicately infused with patience and care, it makes an ideal dish to order at Naturally Chinese all year round. We will be bringing you some more clay pots in our coming posts. Until then, stay warm, hydrated and well nourished.
