Meng Kee at Taman Jurong Market & Food Centre serves quite a variety of claypot dishes all at a standard price of $5.

On its menu are braised pig trotters, braised meat (pork), sesame chicken, bak kut teh, pig's liver and ginger & spring onion batang sliced fish. They also do curries like curry chicken, curry spare ribs, curry mutton, curry sotong, curry fish and curry vegetables.

It is quite easy to overlook this stall as the stall front honestly does not seemed interesting enough to warrant another look and not to mention it being hidden in a inconspicuous corner of the food centre. 

Despite being just a few units away from Ng Kee, I did not once throw it a glance that is, until I learn about their pig trotters which they are highly touted for from the hardwarezone community.

I ordered the braised pig trotters which came piping hot in a sizzling claypot. I also had a bowl of white rice ($0.50) to go along with my meal. 

In the claypot were generous pieces of bite-sized pig trotters that is enough for two to share. Since most of the pieces were without bones, they fit into my mouth easily without staining the lips.

The gelatinous skin is so soft and delicate it literally melts in the mouth. An added bonus is the absence of prickly hairs which I abhor because that would mean I had to discard that piece of precious skin. 

The meat did not fare too badly either as they are tender and have sufficiently sponged up the flavors. Even the parts without skin is a delight to devour.

As for the sauce, it is not too oily. It also tastes milder than I had expected but still flavorful enough to please as it pairs really well with the rice.

I guess it is to suit the palette of the elderly population here who may not like their food too heavy on flavors.
