It seems that recently there is a boom of Lamb Hotpot mushrooming every where. There is one I felt that will suits to alot people for those who cannot really take strong flavours of lamb is this Hidden Lamb Pot in Chinatown is this NIAMAH HaoHong Lamb Pot in Petaling Street.
To find this place might be a abit tricky cuz its a hidden restaurant as hidden in the alley as the main entrance. AT the main road, look for Toto store and right at that alley, walk in. It is even worst when the restaurant is only preparing 40 portions a day starting from 5pm – 10pm or while stock last. You know that you wont go wrong outlet as you walk into the outlet, there is a strong like lamb bak kut teh kind of smell.

The place is indeed very classic, equip with those kind of like Hong Kong fight screen hawker seat, printed classic 80’s era gambling den.
For menu it is super simple and direct. With their signature is the Lamb Pot.
This is one of a place that I would recommend to many of you especially those of you like to drink soup. It is light, flavourful and a little hint of more towards bak kut teh . Lamb is soft and juicy.
You need to dip with their special fermented fu yu sauce that give it extra punch of flavours. It is a unique well balance taste yet quite addictive with the sauce too. I ended up having 3 little sauce tray for it.
Besides that you can order add on items and turn it into like mini steamboat and continue eating. I ended refill my soup at least 5 rounds.
If you think Lamb might be too strong for you, then another option you can go for their Whisky Siew Yuk Wan Tan Mee. this is pretty spot on. Love the texture of wantan mee that cook to al dante, topped with crispy siew yuk which gives you a cracking skin bite. Meat is soft and juicy that makes it right. I even order extra as a small portion to continue eating.
Those that need rice to go after, something you might consider as their Niamah rice – that is cook with lamb soup base. Give you a hint of very mild after taste of lamb. Good to pair with the lambpot.
It is indeed a fun night to meet some enjoy lamb people sitting next to mee. Chef Tommy, hope you continue to cook up amazing dishes and please maintain the quality of your addictive lambpot soup base. On and off can miss his lamb soup base.
It is indeed a recommended place to those of you that enjoy light lamb taste that is soupy end. Recommended to you if you enjoy hint of lamb and a soupy person. those of you love strong lamb taste then this might not be the right place to be.
