KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 6 — Hotpot lovers take note!

There is a new authentic Szechuan-style hotpot restaurant in town that offers a tasty array of dishes, a cute concept, nostalgic interior design and a franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs.

The restaurant, called Supamala Hotpot, opened its doors in Sunway Pyramid in August and created a big buzz last month when it hosted a two-day free food-tasting event that attracted an overwhelming crowd.

For the initiated, Mala is a spicy and numbing seasoning made of Sichuan peppercorn and chilli.

The seasoning originated from Szechuan, China in the 19th century and eventually made its way to Malaysia.

The tingling sensation of the seasoning combined with the heat of the dish creates an exhilarating and addictive experience that keeps Mala lovers continuously craving it.

Pays close attention to cultural diversity

Supamala offers an authentic Szechuan-style hotpot that combines the culinary cultures of Nanyang and Malaysia.

The brand founder, Datuk Azmi Hassan humbly learned the techniques from the giant in the hotpot industry, Hai Di Lao, and strive for continuous improvement.

The dishes were also crafted to embody Malaysian flavours.

The restaurant features regional flavours created with consideration for all racial and cultural groups to meet the brand’s objective of “Hotpot for Everyone”.

It combines the latest trends in modern cooking methods to reimagine urban cuisine and offer a flavour suitable for Malaysians’ taste buds.

One of the main highlights at Supamala is the variety of dipping sauces.

Be greeted by Supamala Panda

A distinctive interior feature at Supamala includes the most representative mascot of Szechuan, a panda.

The restaurant founder believes that pandas have played a crucial role in the diplomatic relations between China and Malaysia and are beloved by Malaysians.

The mascot not only captures the unique charm and adorable appearance of pandas but also incorporates elements of traditional Malay attire, making it more culturally relevant to the local culture.
