If there is something Malaysians just cannot get enough of, it is hotpot. There is something communal and convivial about sharing a simmering hotpot of goodness with friends and family. With over 1000 years of history rooted in ancient China, hotpot has seen the development of distinct regional variations and styles in which all are unique on their own while bringing people together. The popularity of hotpot is evidenced by the mushrooming of hotpot places in Klang Valley and looking to shake things up is the newest kid on the block, Diao Yu Tai Hotpot.

Signature must-have dishes at Diao Yu Tai Hotpot are the Deep Fried Pork Belly, Glutinous Rice with Brown Sugar, Miyazaki A5 Wagyu Beef, Iberico Pork Belly, and the Homemade Fish Paste and Shrimp Paste which are Chef’s Specials.
