Oh for the love of hotpot, a heartwarming classic that brings comfort to the soul. It’s somewhat more of an experience than merely a dish, where friends and family would gather to cook various ingredients in the centred pot of boiling broth, ready to eat within minutes! Although the basic hotpot as we know it would only consist of a soup base, Hong Kong Kool Chicken Pot at Sunway Velocity Mall chooses a unique direction that changes the hotpot game entirely.
Hong Kong Kool Chicken Pot Serves 2-in-1 Dry Pot That Turns Into Soup
Hong Kong Kool Chicken Pot is a restaurant that features hotpot and BBQ skewers prepared by real Hong Kong head chefs. These chefs brought age-old Hongkongese recipes and even ingredients all the way to Kuala Lumpur, thus birthing delicious and authentic dishes at this restaurant.
Their interior instantly sets the mood for a cosy gathering with friends and family, with private karaoke rooms for those who love singing a tune! There are three (3) sizes of karaoke rooms available: Small, medium, large (left to right)
Instead of solely adhering to the standard concept of hotpot, what’s kool about this restaurant is their special dry pot. The protein of choice (chicken, prawn or frog) is freshly cooked with Sichuan peppercorns, coriander and other herbs, taking about 20 minutes to prep. It’s then served in a steaming pot that whiffs of fragrance which would quite literally knock your socks off.
Here comes the unique part- once you’ve finished the dry pot, the server will come around to pour in a clear chicken broth, turning it into hotpot at no added cost! Depending on your spice tolerance, you can build the level of spiciness of the soup upon request or even tone it down!
There’s a wide array of hotpot ingredients to choose from such as Angus beef, Iberico pork collar slices, Japanese clams, tiger prawns, lotus root, vegetables and more.
They also have a delicious but humble homemade fried beancurd roll and mushroom platter! One of the hotpot ingredients includes luncheon meat imported from Hong Kong that truly differs from the ones in Malaysia too.
Teochew dumplings are also a great addition to your hotpot.
We also tried their double hotpot that holds two (2) types of broth: preserved vege & pork intestine, and spicy chicken. Apart from those aforementioned, there are other broths available too like the Sichuan spicy chicken soup and tomato soup base.
Preserved vege & pork intestine soup
Create your own condiments at their station filled with sauces, oils, herbs and more:
Their peanut butter sauce & chilli oil are a must-try!
If you’re looking to try new things as well, don’t miss out on their BBQ Sticks! Using Sichuan-style powdered herbs, they have interesting meats like Iberico lagrima & secreto, along with chicken cartilage.
Lovers of scallops can also find grilled ones here, with glass noodles & minced garlic!
To finish off the sumptuous meal, try their homemade watercress honey lemon tea! It’s beyond refreshing and the watercress adds a surprisingly fresh touch to an otherwise regular tea.
