Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot Sungai Buloh
There is a hotpot (or steamboat) restaurant is making its name in Sungai Buloh. It is called Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot and it is located at PT 11, Jalan Perkhidmatan, Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh. Due to its location, it is near the Subang International Airport, Kota Damansara, Bandar Utama, Kepong and Sungai Buloh. It is in the middle of all the places but by name, it is in Sungai Buloh.
Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot opened for around a year and it is one of the popular restaurants in the area. The restaurant is opened by a group of friends who are passionate in offering good and quality food for its customers. The restaurant is fully air-conditioned.
The restaurant is opened for dinner only as the rest of the day the chefs are busy preparing the soups. If you read my previous hotpot restaurants reviews, the soup (or broth) always plays an important role in a hotpot restaurant and the freshness of the ingredients is equally important. In hotpot, you always drink the soup before and after you cook the ingredients. There is always a significant difference in taste of the soup before and after especially after you cooked seafood.
They offer three types of soups, their Signature Pig Stomach Chicken Soup, Tomato Soup and Salmon Head Tomato Soup. I managed to try their Pig Stomach Chicken Soup and Tomato Soup.
Signature Pig Stomach Chicken Soup
Signature Pig Stomach Chicken Soup starts from RM 22.80. I am not a big lover of pig stomach soup but their Signature Pig Stomach Chicken Soup is really fragrant and flavourful. Even before you put any ingredients into the soup, you will already enjoy the soup. This is highly recommended.
Tomato Soup starts from RM 28.80. First of all, this is not ABC and this taste many times better than that. I thought the soup will be sour-ish due to the tomatoes used but the taste is gorgeous and sweet.
Before heading to the ingredients, let’s check out their condiments and sauces. If I didn’t count wrong, they have seventeen types of condiments and sauces! I love to mix with their foo yee sauce (fermented beancurd sauce), sesame sauce, ginger and special mushroom sauce. Remember the soup is quite strong in flavour so with these or not, it is not important.
I ordered the seafood platter at RM 69.90 with yee mee and egg (not in picture). It comes with mushrooms, vegetables, tiger prawns, scallops, deep fried beancurd skins, fish balls and sotong balls. This platter portion is for four persons.
Homemade meat balls
I tried their homemade meat balls. They are pork tendon balls, beef balls, mushroom pork balls, celery pork balls and sotong pork balls. Each plate of six balls priced at RM 9.90 except beef balls at RM 10.90. The beauty of homemade meat balls are they are fresh (obviously) and the taste is well seasoned.
Pork Belly Slice
Pork Belly Slice (RM 11.90) is thin sliced pork belly and this is absolutely addictive. Just dip it onto the hotpot with chopsticks and stirred it gently until it is cooked and compliment it with sauces and condiments. I always love this.
Pork Neck Slice
Pork Neck Slice (RM 12.90) is different than the thin sliced pork belly as the meat is leaner and thicker. Even though I prefer the thin sliced pork belly, my parents loved this.
Twin Chinese Sausage Rice in Claypot (RM25.80)
Twin Chinese Sausage Rice in Claypot is the side order you must order for Chinese sausage lovers. I enjoyed this very much and I don’t mind coming back for this. They use Hong Kong made Chinese sausages only and the rice is cooked in perfection and well season. It goes well with the sliced fragrant Chinese sausages.
I enjoyed the hotpot and the Twin Chinese Sausage Rice in Claypot. This definitely will make it into one of my top hotpot places in Klang Valley. Since I am not familiar with the roads near Sungai Buloh, the GPS location saved me of getting lost while driving there. Remember to book before you visit the restaurant and this is definitely one of the top of the crops in Sungai Buloh. For more info visit https://www.facebook.com/XiaoLaoWang
