Plaza Arkadia is slowly gaining its momentum for F&B hub. Lamei Mala Hot Pot in Plaza Arkadia is one of the latest addition to the latest malat trend in KL. We were craving for mala and was on the way to another outlet till saw this new shop operating and it was pre-opening promo with 15% off.
The outlet interior is filled with trees that gives you the effect like sakura season.

Condiments for you and is addtional RM 5 per charges if I am not mistaken.
The outlet concept here is pretty unique as they are using Sushi method. Each of the colour plate comes with different pricing and they capped it at:
1) Cylinder Shaped @ RM 6.80
2) Purple @ RM 9.80
3) Green @ RM 13.80
4) Sky Blue @ RM 16.80
5) Yellow @ RM 19.80
6) Red @ RM 29.80
You can either pick the item at the fridge nearby yourself or the waiter/ waitress can serve it to you.
We find that there is a huge problem with the menu as each of the item indicate there do not comes with a sticker pricing. So you will be guessing how much will that be.
Then we pity the waiter/waitress as when the bring the item to you, then you check the pricing of the item. Too expensive then you ask them to return. (as what table next to us did)
There are a few variety of soup for you to choose from:
1) Mix Soup @ RM 39
2) Tomato Soup @ RM 39
3) Pork Bone Soup @ RM 36
4) Beauty Soup @ RM 42
5) Mala @ RM 39
For Mix soup we choose – Mala (level 2) – as was told if it is not spicy enough then we can request to add on spicy, which we did after that. and Beauty Soup.
Mala soup is certainly not for me. There is no numb nor spicy as the usual traditional hotpot is. (even added spicy after that). Beauty Soup is quite bland in taste.
Ingredients are normal and meat are quite expensive as most of the meat are in red means RM 29.80
We did not order alot for 2 pax.
The bill turn out to be RM 189.70 after 15% discount for the ingredient we took, it is definitely not worth it.
Well, I felt that this mala shop soup base had been localise. The the end of the soup is quite bitter. Certainly not my kind of mala shop I would return.
However if you are looking for a malat hotpot in KL beginner place to be, this could be one of your option. Especially our parents.
