Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot had relocate to a new home at The School by Jaya One where previously they operated at Sungai Buloh and Uptown Damansara. This new location not only house Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot, as the group owners have decided to house another 2 more brands under one roof, bringing along Bay 31 and Lameeya.
Love their new design for this outlet that bring classic to modern environment with minimalist.
One of their private dining area.
Lets kick start with Bay 31 as it is a new born concept from this group where coffee and tea is their highlight. Will soon bringing you some breakfast classic toast set. My personal favorite is their Royal Milk Tea Cold @ RM6, Imperial Coffee @ RM 6.50 which is a special blend Arabica Coffee Beans instead of coffee powder from a typical kopiiam and of course their Lime Lime Juice @ RM5. One of a great drink for thirst quenching and also goes well with steamboat.
Hainan Chicken Chop with mashed potato @ RM14.80 will get you some classic Hainanese pork chop
Handmade Thin Bamboo Egg Noodle @ RM8.90 (Medium)
This is one of a heart stealer where the egg noodles were really springy. Meat marination gives a nice decent mouthful of flavour with their sauce and do add in their home made chilli to give you an extra kick. However some food lovers might find it sauce is too thick. We are good with it.
Handmade Bamboo Egg Noodle with Sesame Sauce (Cold) @ RM9.90
This is a Chinese version of cold soba. First time having this as the cold egg noodle is placed on top of an ice bath to keep it cold enough. You can either pick the noodle dip onto the bowl for the seasome dressing or pour it on top and mix it all.
changed of location did not change their menu. Their menu still offer the same variety as they used to be and now they have added one more signature soup base.
Under Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot, their condiments still remains no.1 that offers steamboat lovers with lots of condiments and you are free to mix any of the flavour at your own liking.
Pickled Cabbage Pork Belly Soup is their latest eddtion of soup base and it is my personal recommendation if you love sour vegetable soup base. @ RM48.90 It is a cabbage that had added salt and to pickle the cabbage (for 1 month) in a tight container huge glass jug. Love the soup aroma as it give you the hint of sour vegetable soup, wit mild hint of saltiness yet mix along with long hours of cooking pure pork bone broth, gives you a nice balance of aroma and taste in the soup.
It is advisable to add one time of another round of soup. When it hits third round, the soup will be diluted or left only with pork bone base soup. You can order add on for the pickled cabbage to add on, as what we did below.
We did order fresh fish and were advise to add in the fish head into the soup to cook along, to add in the sweetness of fresh fish head in it.
As some of our friends do not like pickled cabbage, so we oredered another pot which is their signature Pork Stomach Chicken soup @ RM42.90. Punch with flavour, as the soup base clarity is nil. Hint of pepper and love the aroma of sweet pork bone in it. Classic and good.
There are some fresh seafood for you to choose from as live red snapper @ RM7/100g is worth to consider to order. They will fried the fish head for you and can either eat it or add it into the soup as we do. Fish meat indeed its fresh.
If you are out of idea to order, they do have sets menu for you to pick from as it ranges from RM50.90 to RM60.90 (one of the sets as above that comes with fresh Tiger Prawns)
I had a better versions before, however their HKG Bean Curd Roll @ RM13.90 is quite simliar to local favourites. Just dip this peices 3-6 secondes depending on the types of softness you like. Best to start off with 3 seconds first.
This is my version of sauce that I have created, sorry I do not have recipe for this as I created base on my own preference.
Other ingredients that is worth to order, such as their layered tofu, fresh pork balls, fish balls or even their Sanbanto Berkshire Pork Belly (Small – RM16.90 / Large – RM28.90)
This is one of a decent place for hotpot especially their soup base.
