With its unique style and daring levels of spice, the Sichuan way to hot pot quickly gained popularity around the world which led Sichu Malatang’s owner, Jeff Li, to bring the Malatang experience to Manila. Sichu Malatang was then first opened in 2019 in Double Dragon in Pasay, and with its success, they now opened their 2nd location in Mall of Asia to cater to more customers in the area. But with this kind of success, it won't be long before we find a new branch popping up in other parts of Manila as well.

Once you get your fill of fresh assortment in your bowl, it goes to the weighing station where they will price your bowl by the gram.


The 250g bowl is perfect for solo eaters while the enormous 1-kilo bowl is good for sharing for 3.


And as for our favorite step is finally choosing your cooking style where your food if being prepared by their exclusive in-house Chinese chef using his housemade broth and sauces that require utmost skill and techniques for a perfect dish. You can choose from:

  • “Malatang” for the traditional hot pot with soup (if you're more interested in spicy numbing soups)
