Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot @ Sg Buloh KL - Shifted to Damansara Uptown PJ

Update: Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot have shifted to Damansara Uptown. It is now located along the same row as Lammeeya and HSBC bank. Will pop by for a review soon. 

New Location:
Address: 47G, SS21/37 Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya.
Phone: 03-7725 9513
Opening Hours: 5pm - 11pm Daily.

On stuffy nose and fuzzy eyes the plan was this: Attend a friend's eatery opening then go home and sleep the rest of the day of.

Little did I know, a supposedly brief lunch trip became an extended full day outing instead.

Feeling rather groggy and weary towards dinner time, I dragged myself to Sg Buloh as nothing can deter me from trying out new foods - Or so I thought.

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot

Opened merely a month ago, Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot managed to spur a good amount of interest and garnered a noteworthy clan of foodie followings, especially from the buzz created from its dedicated facebook page.

We made a booking prior to arrival and got there at about 7pm.

There was an abundance of sauces located right at the centre of the restaurant - self service or served. You can either opt to follow the step by step guide of custom mixed sauces or simply create your own unique blend.

My personal favorite has to be the special mushroom sauce - also the crème de la crème of their sauces, a definite must try!

SLW Pork with Chicken Soup. RM18.90.

We ordered the pork with chicken broth as our soup base. Essentially, hot pot broth is slightly thicker in consistency compared to the typical steamboat soup base and the pots used are different. This version was clear and tasted pleasantly mild yet smooth. It came with generous portions of chicken and pig stomach as well. 

Prawn Paste. Rm8.90.

Our pretty server was nice enough to assist us with our first serving of fresh prawn paste. According to her, hotpot should be enjoyed and consumed slowly by not dunking in everything at once like the usual ways of steamboat. The steaming balls of prawn paste turned out to be one delightful treat. It was fresh, springy and well done.

Assorted Seafood and Vegetables. Rm4.90 onwards.

You can either order à la carte or based on their predetermined platters.
HK Twin Sausage Rice. Rm18.80.

Their signature claypot rice was extremely appetizing and definitely worth trying. The grains of rice was cooked just right and was strikingly fragrant - good enough to be relished on its own. The pig liver and chinese sausage on the side simply complemented the dish further. I would highly recommend this.

Smoked Duck. Rm8.90.

I was told that the smoked duck should only be added towards the end of the meal; simply because it carries more oil and its strong flavours will change the taste of the soup base. Notwithstanding, I found the smoked duck a little too chewy for my liking.

Homemade Kumquat Honey Lemon. Rm10.00.

Snow Beer. Rm8.50.

We also ordered some more vegetables and noodles along the way, in which I lost track of taking pictures after awhile.

Prices came to about Rm35 per head.

I was so exhausted when I got home. I hurriedly showered and popped a flu med before heading off to bed - on a full and satisfied stomach that is.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10 This warming, comforting pot of goodness that reminds me of my younger days when I had occasional steamboat sessions with my extended family with an exceptional twist of heartiness on rainy nights. Oh~ the 15%-off opening promo is still valid!

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot is located at:
PT 11 Jalan Perkhidmatan Kampung Baru Sg Buloh Selangor
