CHICKEN HOT POT.

I am game for any type of food but the spiciness of the clay pot food served at Chicken Hot Pot was too much for me.

I am not sure of the type of chillies/pepper that they used and the capsaicin (a safe and effective analgesic found in chillies) level was definitely more than 150,000 on the Scoville scale.

This is the 3rd branch of the Chicken Hot Pot group of restaurants which originated from Shanghai, China and is located in Bandar Puteri, Puchong (opposite the Giant Hypermarket).

All the piping hot cooked food are served on a clay pot, placed on a metal stand and kept warm with liquid wax flame.
Best to eat it the traditional way, pick the food with a pair of chopsticks and down it with
white rice from a bowl,

After the meal proper, peppery tasting broth are added to the clay pot for those who want to continue eating, with "off the rack" ingredients meant for steamboat (stored in a chiller) which are charge separately.

Parking is OK.

The shop front with their "opening date" banner.

Metal stand for the clay pot.

Beef set(small)-served with celery, radish, matchstick carrot and Chinese parsley-beef was soft and tender and the broth was way too spicy and numbing for my palate-Rm18.80.

Chicken set(small) cooked with lots of big onion and garnished with Chinese parsley and matchstick carrot-the chicken pieces were small and not generous-the spiciness was greater than the beef set!-Rm18.80/

Fish set(big)-lightly battered and cooked with milder chillies gravy which was more too my liking and garnished with matchstick carrot, Chinese and sliced cucumber-Rm32.80/.

Total bill: Rm102/
Location:72, Jalan Puteri 2/4,
Bandar Puteri, Puchong,
Tel:03-8063-5696.

Yeah, damn spicy. I asked for the normal spicy version, but tongue-numbing already.

Hello foodbin, I do not like too hot either. The food looks great. Will try one day. TQ for introducing this unique restaurant.

Btw, I am not sure if the rose is bud-grafted originally. Sorry.
