Chong Qing Chicken Hot Pot @ Kuchai Maju

I have heard a lot about Kuchai Maju area from WenChing and some TV programmes keep promoting the eateries at this area. Since then, this area becomes very hot and popular. Crowded sometimes and hardly could find a space for your lovely car.

Since there are many restaurants popping up in this area, I nagged WenChing out for a lunch with me. Here we were in Chong Qing Chicken Hot Pot located at Kuchai Maju area (always want to come here and finally here am I).

Look! This place is featured in HoChak before. There are stickers on the see through glass where chef was preparing the dishes.

Icy jasmine and honey lemon ice at Rm 3.80 each

We chose the smallest Chicken Hot Pot (priced at Rm 16) and asked to be made into medium hotness. This was prepared with chicken, lots of garlic, onions, carrot, coriander, celery and other spices which are known as their secret recipe.

The chicken was well-marinated and fragrantly served in the hot pot. It was best served in piping hot or you could ask them to light up fire to allow the chicken to be warmed up or allow to be maintained at a higher temperature. Hence, you can enjoy the hot pot slowly. While we were almost done, we requested for soup to be added into the hot pot (I have photo after adding soup into hot pot but guess you wouldn’t want to have a look. It turned out to be black due to the left over sauce. Well, just use your imagination). As the soup keeps boiling, you could opt for some side dishes such as vegetables and have them like steamboat. We didn’t as this hot pot came along with 2 bowls of rice were more than enough for us.

The service was okay and the chicken hot pot was nice (as we love spicy food). A revisit? Not that soon yet as there is still a lot of restaurant out there for us to try on! I have eyed on another restaurant in Kuchai Maju area, shall we have a try-out?! ~
