My favourite picks for the day was, of course, the broccoli, mixed variety of mushrooms, sweet green pea, baby spinach, young shoots of kai lan, lotus slice, and their foo chok strips (imported from Singapore). These foo chok strips got me mistaken it for pasta, the flat-thick fettuccine instead.

Finally, just proceed to the cashier counter for weighing in the chosen meat and vegetables. Take your pick of their two type of house made sauce - Unique Platter (Non-Spicy) or the Ma Lat (Spiciness comes in 3 levels). I would suggest you try out Level 1 which is spicy enough for Malaysian palate, go for Level 2 or 3 if you are daring enough because Ma Lat sauce is very spicy, and numbing Chinese sauce made from Sichuanese peppercorn, chili pepper and various spices simmered with oil.

Step-by-Step As Easy As ABC

Hot Pot Kitchen practices self-service, so there are no service charges that are levied on your total bill. Once your dishes are cooked you will need to pick up your meals at the cashier counter.

Unique Platter Dish is an ideal dish to order for those, not into any spicy or hot. Natural and fresh, cooked with a variety of vegetables including white radish,brinjal, bitter gourd. button mushroom, baby spinach, and kai lan with fresh prawns topped with fresh coriander leaves, crunchy roasted peanuts, and sesame seeds to enhance its flavour.

Next was the second spicy dish ~ Ma Lat Sauce Spicy Flavour (Level 2). This is truly a spicy yet flavourful dish, in fact, is one of my favourites as the special house made Ma Lat sauce complemented every single ingredient in the dish.

The spicy sauce had a nice balance of flavour. I loved it especially with the generous topping of sesame seeds and roasted peanuts which I think it's unique and yet able bring the taste and texture another notch higher.

As a matter of fact, a group of Chinese students from Xiamen University longing for flavourful home-cooked, rustic food had gotten hooked on this dish as it reminds them so much of their home  land cuisine.

Coming up next is the Fried Spicy Lala. This is a soon-to-be-introduced Ala carte seafood dish in their new menu. You can also choose your level of spiciness for the dish. For me, this is a little too hard to bear as it was way too spicy for my taste buds. Nevertheless, the sauce base is good and really goes well with the fresh clams.    

No Pesticide, No Antibiotics, and No Hormones

Another point the owner wish to highlight is that all the meat and vegetables goes thru an ozone sterilization treatment process before being served, as this ensures that pesticide and antibiotics are removed from the meat and vegetables. So diners can dine with ease at HotPot Kitchen with ~ No Pesticide, No Antibiotics, and No Hormones.

  2. Although this place is probably not cheap, but they are centrally located, have fabulous staff and delicious food, and most importantly, the best views of the city. I would definitely recommend the Los Angeles venues for any kind of fancy event – all my friends talked about throwing parties here only.
