Since their inception in 2013, Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot has relocated twice. They started off in Sungai Buloh, moved to Damansara Uptown and now they are operating in Jaya One.
Their hotpot sets consist mainly of real, natural ingredients and it's only accompanied by a handful of homemade meatballs. Live prawns are the highlight, as you can see they are larger than usual and taste sweet, succulent and firm to the bite.
Impressed with the food at Senthai & Mookata, we returned shortly the next day to try their Thai barbecue and steamboat. But let me preface by saying that both their mookata and steamboat are excellent (as we hoped) and the ingredients served were high quality and fresh.
While most steamboat restaurants in Kepong operate in commercial areas, Popo Steamboat Cafe occupies a breezy, open space next to an industrial area. It might be a little challenging for outsiders to find Popo, but I assure you the extra effort will be worth it.
Just when we thought we have tried all the steamboat restaurants in Bandar Menjalara, we actually missed out a big one - Taifeng Taiwanese Hotpot.
Taifeng offers a few unique soup bases that cannot be found at other local steamboat restaurants. One of them is their signature Sour Vege with Pork Soup @ RM26.50. Yep you read that right, soups are not provided free here.
Only Me is a relatively new steamboat & BBQ buffet restaurant that opened in Kepong early this year. Despite being the new kid on the block, they are doing exceptionally well and are giving QQ a run for their money. If you don't know yet, both restaurants sit in the same row and they are just a stone's throw away from each other.
