There are tons of China malat hotpot in the market and the latest one that currently making a huge hype is this authentic Xiao Long Kan Hotpot 小龙坎老火锅 from Chengdu is now officially landed in Fahrenheit 88, KL smack right in the heart of Bukit Bintang. Where shopping is just right at your door step. One of a new mala hotpot in KL.

Just walk downhill from the road in between Sephora and Uniqlo, then you will see a long queue right in front of the shop. That is them in the street. One of the only shop that have a classic China heritage kind of frontage.

The set up is exactly like the one I visited when I was in Chengdu 2 months back. With 2 huge chairs and a dragon head frontage and if you are the cashier area, you can see the amount of awards that they have won over a short period of time.

They have this cute game character on the wall as you walk up to the levels. There is no lifts for customers.

Love the seating ambiance, as each of the seating pavilion comes with different drawings. From the historic 3 Kingdom character that represent the heart of Chengdu.

For the hotpot, we were recommended on 3 of their signature. Of course the original or authentic Malat soup, Tomato soup base and I had the pork bone soup. (I was told that their mushroom soup win over the pork bone soup – have yet try but will try it next visit)

The style of dipping the ingredients into the soup from chef recommendations:

Malat soup comes with a few level. Some of you that could not take spicy then it is best advise to start off level 1 or 2. those of you that are used eating malat and would like to try the authentic’ness of it, start with Level 3 onwards.

  • best to only dip with all the ingredient of pig/beef spare parts and meats
  • Chengdu customers do not drink soup like us. Soup base level 3 and above is more like towards drinking oil. The meat goes it is more for dipping for fragrance of malat oil.

Love the tomato soup base as it is sourish enough to my liking, slightly creamy from the beating of tomato and the thin layer of oil on top, is fragrant of the soup. Must order if can.

  • dip mostly with vegetable to enjoy the sweetness and fragrant of the soup base after that (if you were to drink it)

Pork bone soup – we start of with the prawns and the whole pot is punch with the fresnhess of the prawn shell flavour. then after that we just pour in the rest of meat or veggie that we are looking at. Base on our ingredient and soup base, best to refill max 3 times of soup to enjoy maximum flavour of the soup base from all the meat and vegetable.

In China hotpot, my damage for bill never comes in 2 figure. Always ended up 3 figure per head. Here is my order and guess what? I have a new favourite dish in Chengdu and now they have it here. The green Bamboo slices is my new favourite and a must have item.

A mixture of their special sauce and condiments comes with additional RM 5 per head.

Best way to enjoy the dipping Sauce is with a mix of scallions, Xiang Chai, chopped garlic and chilli with Xiao Long Kan secret “Xiang You 香油” aka fragrant oil. (original way)

To some of you that used to add in vinegar and oyster sauce is another way to tone down the spiciness level of the meat. (where I am used to mix this 2 in)

First round of ordering, ordered mostly Xiao Long Kan Signature Dish. Their XLK Spicy Chili Beef 双辣牛肉 @ RM38/full – best to dip into malat soup.

Xiao Long Kan Hotpot (9)

My new favourite, Sliced Bamboo shoots @ RM 8 love the crips texture of it. There a few ways to eat this.

  1. Eat it raw
  2. Best to dip it for 3 second and eat
  3. 9 second (my friend favourite style) – where it is soft.

Shrimp Paste 手工虾滑 @ RM38

Xiao Long Kan Hotpot (10)

Rose Meat Ball 手工玫瑰丸子@ RM26 – hand crafted signature meatball. dip the whole thing into the pot and was told best to eat along with the rose petal too. To enjoy the flavour of it.

Xiao Long Kan Hotpot (11)

Pork Brain if you are up for it. Have to cook in a metal basket for at least 15 minutes and a bite of this give you a creamy texture.

Xiao Long Kan Hotpot (12)

Brown Sugar Glutinous Rice Stick 红糖糍粑 @ RM13 – a must order item for me as love the texture of the muarchi goie’ess with brown sugar is just perfect. Do not take a huge big bite when it is serve as it is pippin hot.

Fried Crispy Meat 现炸酥肉 @ RM16

We went slightly crazy as we hit for the extreme level of Malat Pot. For a trio pot, I think the extreme level might not be suitable as it is too concentrated and spicy level is max high. I would prefer it if it is only 2 soup base pot. Bigger volumme of soup and more equal. I think this would be perfect.

The rest as below are the normal items that usually I would order for my hotpot.

Xiao Long Kan Hotpot (15)

Australian A5 Beef @ RM90/full

A must have item for me – Duck Intestine 冰球鸭肠 @ RM28 (do not over cook this as 1-3 minutes is perfect) and also Pig Intestines  @ RM12, Sliced Kidney 手工猪腰片 @ RM16 – Which i forgot to take picture.

Their new shop name is currently known as Xiao Long Xing Jiang Hu instead of the famous Xiao Long Kan at Sunway Velocity.

updated 19th May: I was told by my friend that Xiao Long Kan in Sunway Velocity is not original and it is a copy cat.

I am a big fan of China Mala hotpat. My friend arrange a dinner at this famous Xiao Long Kan Hotpot 小龙坎重庆老火锅 in Sunway Velocity as she rate this is one of the best China Szechuan hotpot in that area. Also got to find out that they are well known in China and this is their first outlet out from China.

[went back again Jan’19 and it seems that their soup quality had drop. order medium spicy turns out to be less spicy and the herb after taste not that prominent]

Along this new boulevard of Sunway velocity, I am impress on how many other China restaurant that is operating in this area and amount of China Chinese is dining in. I am sure it is quite authentic that drive them to these few shops.

There will be a long queue if you come during peak hours and some of other shops operate till 3am.

For China stemboat, we will not miss out with your own diy sauces that are basic with freshly chopped chili, garlic, coriander and spring onion. To add in at least half bottle of their sesame oil into your sauce.

For soup base, we order their signature : Butter Spicy Soup with 1 chili (which you can choose on your spicy level till level 3) @ RM 48, and Mushroom Yuen Yang @ RM 42. First timer, I would advise on level 1 spiciness level as it is quite different from others. If you think you can really take ma la spicinness then start off with level 2. I had mine in 2 chili. Loving it.

I have had quite number of China Szechuan steamboat in KL and certainly this is one of my top recommendations now. Price is on the steep side but near comparable with Xiao Fei Yang (XFY). Another of my favourite is also CQB in Kuchai Lama.

Certainly not cheap as the total bill came about RM 500 with 2 bottles of beer.

my second visit 3.11.2018:




Do remember to call to make reservation. If You walk in, the waiting time during peak hours is 2-3 hours. I waited 3 hours without booking. So its kinda bad.

[update: went on 6th Jan 2019, the quality of soup had dropped.. Order medium spicy taste non spicy and the herbs ingredient is less prominent] downgrade ratings from 9 – 7.5

Food Rating 7.5/10, one of the best SzeChuan Hotpot !!! Recommended! ~-Stamped-
