The taste of sauce and difference in ingredients will always be present in multiple places so you can’t always expect to get the same flavours in different locations. For example, the use of charcoal does help with the smoky flavour but using a gas stove also has its uniqueness. The sauce might be mixed with a different condiment and sometimes, more ingredients are chosen for the clay pot rice. Perhaps you might find comfort in the simple ingredients or a completely new favourite with other ingredients.
