A Pot of Happiness

Hong Kong

Rice is never just rice when you are in Asia. While it seems like there’s not a lot to these humble grains, there are countless ways it is enjoyed across the continent. In Hong Kong, locals have put a twist to a plain bowl of rice by slow-cooking it in a clay pot to give it its distinct texture and flavor. Popularly known as clay pot rice, it is usually served mixed with other ingredients—most common being chicken, Chinese sausage, and vegetables.
