The place offers various broths of which toppings are already pre-determined. They have spicy broths and Malaysian broths like their curry. They also have some minor snacks and fried chicken too! Wanting to try a bit of both, the girl and I shared a bowl of Malaysian curry hot pot and Korean fried chicken (my friend Lambert will probably try sometime soon).

The Malaysian curry hot pot was actually real nice. The toppings included fish balls, tofu, chicken, veggies, mushrooms, and sausages. You can also add most toppings for an extra dollar each (like crab meat, shrimp, meatballs, etc). The curry was a thinner soup base that was thick enough without being watery. The flavor was very good and it had a nice kick of spiciness without being overbearing. The items in the soup really soaked up that flavor nicely as well. It comes with rice, but you should upgrade to noodle as it is the best way to be having your soup.

The Korean fried chicken side we ordered was pretty much like Taiwanese popcorn chicken that was tossed with a spicy Korean sauce and topped with green onions. The chicken was crisp and not greasy at all. Decent enough.

I always tend to think of hot pot as a time to gather friends to hover around a giant pot of boiling goodness, but this individual hot pot idea was pretty good. They range in prices from $12-15, so its a bit pricey but a nice dinner to have. Ours came out quickly too, which is opposite of what I've been reading, but I guess I came at the right time (and yes, it was packed).
