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).
