Suding Xiang Hot Pot is inspired by cuisine from Chongqing, China. They serves authentic flavours from some of the region’s best food, namely Sichuan Mala.
Sichuan Mala is widely used in China cuisines from both Chongqing & Sichuan region. Mala is a popular oily, spicy, and numbing Chinese sauce which consists of Sichuanese peppercorn, chili pepper and various spices simmered with oil.
Mala is by far 1 of the flavours that you’ll have to tried at least once in your life, but even if you can’t handle the spicy mala soup, you can always opt for the Pork Bone soup or the chicken broth soup for a milder taste.
Suding Xiang Hot Pot, Sunway Velocity
Suding Xiang Hot Pot is located at Sunway Velocity, 1 of the newly erected shopping malls in the Kuala Lumpur region. Situated nearby Jalan Peel, Suding Xiang Hot Pot restaurant itself is placed at its outer boulevard, just right outside of the entrance.
They do not have the outer seating, but the inner decorations are heavily inspired by China culture and influence, for example the bowls and plates that they used and also the wooden furniture.
What to eat in Suding Xiang Hot Pot?
If you chose to order the hot pot, you’re given a squarish metal pot, which you can opt for 2 different soup base. I went for their Sichuan Mala – mild spicy and also their Herbal Chicken soup, which serves in a limited quantities every day.
You can then order ingredients to your liking and boil it away for your gastronomic adventure.
If the soup ain’t spicy enough for you, you can even add in even more this sichuan chilli oil to increase the spiciness.
Right at the entrance, they also have on display tonnes of different ingredients to make your own sauce. Traditionally, they will include peanut sauce, fermented sauce, chillies, dry chillies and salty bean sauce, all into 1 mix. They do have the sauce portion listed on the wall, so you can just follow along to try it out.
After all the sensational chillies and numbing taste, they will serve you a bowl of sweet dessert to soothe you down. This one here is the Barley dessert, served cold.
I haven’t been to a lot of different Sichuan Mala restaurant, nor had a lot of different Sichuan Mala dishes. But SuDing Xiang Hot Pot Mala soup base does have its own kick to it, and not just numbing spiciness but with the aromatic spices to it. The ingredients serves are also high in quality and fresh.
