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. 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.
Serving an authentic Chengdu style of hotpot, Diao Yu Tai Hotpot is headed by Chef Reno Foong Keng Yew with an impressive 18 years of experience under his belt. Chef Reno’s speciality includes Chengdu Hotpot Cuisine, Cantonese Chinese Cuisine, and Szechuan Cuisine and by masterfully combining all his specialities, he has created a contemporary Asian fusion which is at the heart of Diao Yu Tai Hotpot Cuisine.
Besides taking hotpot cuisine to the next level, Chef Reno is also a master at plating and ice sculpting, having raked up a collate of industry awards from ice art sculpture showcases from around the world.
The 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 the Chef’s Specials.
The essence of hotpot is in the flavourful broth in which raw ingredients are cooked. Hotpot lovers here can choose from the Mala Soup, Pork Bone Soup, Tomato Soup, and more bases. Furthermore, you can also choose which special sauce you’d like to pair it with, there is the Magic Hotpot Sauce or Secret Dry Plate Sauce to complete the mouth-watering hotpot experience.
