Lorong 33 Geylang Claypot Rice – new restaurant in Beach Road


If the famous Beach Road Prawn Mee is in East Coast Road, it should not be surprising to find the popular Lorong 33 Geylang Claypot Rice in Beach Road. After selling claypot rice in Geylang Lorong 33 for more than 30 years, Geylang Claypot Rice closed its doors last year, leaving many loyal customers disappointed. The good news is that Lor 33 Geylang Claypot Rice has re-opened with a nicer dining environment in Beach Road.

The new restaurant in Beach Road has a fairly extensive zichar menu. Below are pictures of the order chit which lists the current items available and the prices.

A Little Secret


We visited the new Lor 33 Geylang Claypot Rice in Beach Road for dinner a few days after it opened. We ordered a small Claypot Rice ($15) and Egg Fu Rong ($10). Service charge, but not GST, will be added to the bill.

There were a number of customers who arrived after us but got their food first. It was not because they were regular customers or because of any mix up in the kitchen. They had simply called ahead to place their orders. We were advised to call about 20 minutes before arriving at the restaurant so that the claypot rice would be hot and ready to eat when we reach the place. The restaurant manager passed us a “secret number” on a small slip of paper (picture below) for us to call before our next visit.

Claypot Rice Dinner

After a wait of about 30 minutes, our food arrived. The rice, with Chinese sausages, salted fish, chicken and other ingredients, had a pleasing aroma when the claypot lid was removed before us. The small claypot was rather large and the portion of chicken was quite substantial. The small claypot rice could be shared by 2 or 3 persons.

The waiting staff added in the black sauce and mixed up the rice with the ingredients. The dish looked even more appetizing. There were crispy bits od rice stuck to the sides of pot. The chicken was cooked just right and was moist and flavourful. We also liked the generous portion of Chinese sausages.

The Egg Fu Rong was egg fried with onions, vegetables and prawns. It was quite nice eaten with the chili sauce provided.

Overall, our claypot rice dinner at the new Lorong 33 Geylang Claypot Rice restaurant in Beach Road was nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. We are glad that we can now get good charcoal cooked claypot rice and zichar dishes in a pleasant dining environment. We will be happy to eat at Geylang Claypot Rice in Beach Road again and we must remember to use the secret number to call ahead.
