The popular pick would certainly be the 3 Flavoured Pot (RM50). You can choose 3 of your favourites from the soup choices of:
Traditional Spicy Soup 麻辣汤
Mushroom Flavoured Soup 菌汤
Tomato Flavoured Soup番茄
Pork Bone Soup 大骨汤

We tried the spicy, mushroom and the tomato soup. Our personal favourite was the tomato soup. Those who love the fiery spiciness can savour the spicy level 4 . The thick broth offered a nice blend of herbs and spices with that fiery kick of spiciness. Not forgetting the aroma that was flowing up. We tried level 2 and we looked like we just came out from the shower.. hahaha..*shy shy*.  The mushroom soup had an earthy mushroom taste with a tinge of light bitterness in the ending. While the tomato soup was just perfect. A gentle tomato taste with aroma.

The sauce is made using a mix of chopped garlic, chilli, spring onion, coriander and XLK’s special “xiang you”. A pure indulgence when you dip your items into it before eating. Further elevates the flavour in every bite.

Apart from the hotpot items, don’t miss out on trying these bites too. I loved the Rice Cake with Brown Sugar Syrup. One bite into it and you experience a nice mix of crispy outer, sticky inside that comes with a light sweetness from the brown sugar syrup. This was addictive.
