A few times I drive pass by this place, it is always full with people and got me very curious. Only then found out that they are one of the new famous  大头啦啦煲 Dai Tao Lala Pot at Kepong, KL. They are famous for Charcoal Claypot Lala Pot. dai tao lala potDecided to check them out this Kepong Lalal Pot and I kiasu to come early at 5.30 pm after reading at some of the comments. The queue can go as crazy as 2 hours wait. When I reach, I  can even see some tables already finishing up eating where they open at 5pm. Quite crazy eaters.

fried lalal kepongFirst time here, we decided and go for 2 charcoal claypot. This is Dai Tao Signature Soup @ RM 38 per kg clams which is the star of the day. You can see that many tables just take phone out and shoot as most of the diners will suddenly jump up. First  is to make the claypot hot ontop of the flaming charcoal. They have a quick stir fry on some ingredients. Add in clams, soup then let it boil.

Add in Chinese Rice wine to stir up the flavour (by the way it is also free flow for the Chinese rice wine to add into soup)lala steamboat You need to be fast to finish the lala in the pot or best advise to scoop up all of it and enjoy at the sides.Broth

is  mild spicy from ginger taste, hint of Chinese wine (but you can add more) to give you the extra punch of flavours. Clams flavour is there. I personally feel that to drink half of the soup enjoy it before allowing them to add on the soup base. The first soup base is always the best.pork pepper soup Next  pot we trying their Pork Stomach Soup with White Peppercorn @ RM38. Those of you cant take the strong version then this might be suitable for you to enjoy longevity of drinking. Mild peppery, nice after taste of broth and pretty decent broth to be as steamboat.  Chicken meat is soft.nam yu fried chicken wing I see other table order Namyu Fried Chicken, and it seems looks good. Order along. Turns out to be better than expected as they use fresh chicken to fry. Skin is crispy, not too salty and well balance of namyu taste is there, yet not too overpowering.steamboat in kepongWe are ready to dig in. 
special chili sauce I see other people making this sauce and I also follow along. Very simple. Just mix everything in the ingredients section. Just beware that their chili paid is very spicy. I am sure you will blow fire after eat it yet quite addictive. Its a  mixture of garlic, parsley, chili pady and Chives.
