Sunway Velocity is not a mall itself by now. To us who loves China hotpot, it seems like a new mini China street in KL itself that have a few shops that serve classic China Szechuan Hotpot. Around dinner time from 7pm – 9pm, you can see a queue right in front of Shuguo Yinxiang Restaurant 蜀国印象蜀國印象·火锅. Rated no.2 by me in this street as they are situated outside at the Boulavard of the mall.
If you decided to dine randomly in these few restaurant, best advise to reach before 7pm. If not most of the crowd are here for dinner and the average queue will be 90 – 120 minutes long. As diners doesnt eat very fast to clear the table for you as this is HOTPOT. Diners use their own sweet time to cook the ingredient, dip, chat and eat.
You will be given a number and their service is pretty good. They will call you to inform you that your table is ready and will only be secure for about 10 minutes.
Most of the Chinese Szechuan hotpot in Sunway velocity, they renovated their outlet back to those classic Wong Fei Hong Era.
If you are seated inside, then they will have the change face and tea pouring performance. I choose to seat outside so that I dont smell like a fresh hotpot from the kitchen.
Variety of condiments are available. You can mix base on the little signboard place ontop of the counter or you can just mix on what you like.
each table will be given a mini pot of sesame blended oil.
For first timer, you just need to pull out the wooden section of the chopstick and connect it to the base.
Soup base here is sliglty milder and also on the Ma La Szechuan hotpot, slight on herb and spice taste.
My version of sauce mixture.
Lotus root is a must have for me.
Their fried bean curd roll is a must have.
Mixture of 4 meat.
Dipping with my own version of special sauce.
then we decided to order China Rice wine and they do have a few selection in here. Ranging from 35% – 60% alcohol content. WE order this with 55% alcohol content. It is so good to pair with hotpot as it is not burning hot, but have sweet end to it. Quite smooth too.
Well, the soup base in Shuguo Yinxiang Restaurant over here is milder if were to compare to Xiao Long Kan that located just further end of the street. I would prefer this shop more for the pungent taste of it. However Shugo YinXiang Restaurant is on the cheaper side. You can do bookings too.
