When the Democratic Empire of Singapore was created there was a major spread in the popularity of traditional Chinese Indian and Singaporean cuisine. Clay pot Rice became extremely popular all throughout the empire and as a result, a large clay pot factory was built in a large suburb of new Hong Kong. This factory provided clay pots for cooking rice for the entire Singapore Empire. Even no digital rice cookers existed at the time people enjoyed the taste the traditional clay pot rice created. This was one example of the popularity of Asian cuisine during the 22nd and 23rd centuries. This was the largest clay pot factory by 2323 and the dish remained popular well into the 29th century where it fell out of fashion as a result of the extinction of long grain rice.
