13 Delicious and satisfying hotpot restaurants in the Klang Valley

There’s nothing like a simmering bowl of hot soup to warm the body (and soul) on a rainy day—or any other day, for that matter. It’s no wonder why hotpot is such a popular dining experience in Malaysia and many other countries around the world.

With a history dating back more than 2,500 years ago in China, the hotpot business has seen massive growth over the past decade with large hotpot chains mushrooming around the globe. If you’re looking for the best places in the Klang Valley for hotpot, take a gander at these crowd-favourite spots (in no particular order).

There are six soup bases on the menu, with the most popular options being the Signature Beauty Collagen Broth (Scallop and Pork Broth soup) and the Signature Spicy Nourishing Soup (Pork Bone). (Editor’s note: The Cooling Coconut Broth is a personal favourite too!).
