House Of Happiness in Bedok serves a range of claypot rice options, including Japanese-inspired donburi with toppings such as teriyaki pork jowl, ikura and tobiko.

The New Paper's food columnist Yeoh Wee Teck likes the eatery's pork lard, furikake, onsen egg claypot best. It has the right balance of texture and sensations, he says.

The eatery is opened by the team behind Mr Lorbak, a hawker stall specialising in braised pork which was reviewed in ST's Cheap & Good column last year.
