With the cold weather approaching, friends will be getting together for hot-pot. Hot pot warms you up when you are cold. "Mala" hot pot is noted for being spicy. The most favoured meat is mutton, which Chinese people believe to be "heaty." you dip the...meat in the broth and eat it when it's done. Hot-pot is a fun thing, and it's good time for friends to get together when it's cold outside.More

"Mala" hot-pot means hot-pot that is very spicy. With hot-pot, you have pot, with broth, into which you dip your ingredients. In cooler weather, mutton is popular, because it is considered to be "warming." Chinese people often don't like mutton, because they think that it...has an unpleasant smell.More

With colder weather approaching it time to visit Mala Yangyang Hotpot. You choose your broth and meat, and eat as much as you like. There's a wide range of ingredients to choose from, including meat, fish and vegetables. Hot-pot is a fun night out, it's...a great meal to share with friends. It will certainly warm you up.More

Place is very good located and provide wide choice self cooking food. This is not the first restaurant we try and found Mala Yuanyang good for us. Usually this place is busy by the locals, and if you want table - you better to make...a reservation first. Food was good and enough for the price we paid.More

The tourist friendly Mala Yuanyang Hot Pot was our pick to try Taiwanese hot pot. For about 30 dollars not only do you get unlimited meat and veggies to go with the two broth of your choice, but also included unlimited booze and ice cream....The meat quality was decent and service was efficient if not friendly. There is a two hour time limit but it was plenty of time.More

This is out second time visit to the restaurant and we are so lucky that we could have a table without reservation. This restaurant has few branches and most of them are always fully booked especially at dinner time. Delicious food. Their Mala and Vegetable...soups are the most favorite ones.More

The steamboat is affordable, with freeflow meat (including beef!), vegetables, seafood, drinks, desserts, etc. Will recommend the vegetable energy soup and herbal chicken soup for travellers who are unable to take spicy soup base. The flavour selections for the freeflow Haagen Dazs and Movenpick ice...cream do not disappoint.More

As base soups, we chose 1)Spicy soup and 2) Vegetable Energy soup. We thoroughly enjoyed these and would recommend the soup combo. Then, came an endless barrage of delicious meat and seafood treats. We tried all the beef in the menu, and paired them with...all the shrimp/prawns in the menu. Save for the orange prawns, we enjoyed all of them. Round 2, we chose scallops and sea bass and paired it with japanese pork and angus beef. The mushrooms and the vegetables are likewise good but to our surprise we thoroughly enjoyed the meatballs (squid balls are our fave). I have severe lactose intolerance so I am happy that they have a couple of Haagen Dazs sorbets to enjoy - perfect way to end our dinner adventure.More

My friends see the Mala Hotpot from trip advisor, and they take me to try it becuz top star reviews. We didn’t reserve a table so its not too long time to get a table. The restaurant have biggest appetites and many foods and drinks...selection: pork, beef, lamp etc. but I don’t believe that the dessert is Haagen Dazs and free flow beer. I think we did’t pay much (5 pax 3495 NTD/2 hrs)but got hight quality foods and drinks. We can not speak Chinese but staff try to explain me about details. Thank you for taking care of us. Hight recommendation! This Mala Hotpot is very much visit in Taipei. It not disappointed!More

Me and my Japanese colleague had dinner in Mala Hotpot in Ximen last Aug. 26, 2019. My colleague made a reservation before we went there as she knows its always crowded. This 2hrs unlimited hotpot buffet is really a must to try in Taipei. There...were a lot of food in the buffet but what makes me amazed were the premium meats are included like angus, wagyu and USDA meat and ofcourse the haagen-dazs and movenpick icream for dessert. Even if you eat for 1 gallon its fine lol. Overall experience is good. There were a lot of food and beverages to choose in the buffet. It is truly a value for money. If you wanna try, don't forget to make a reservation to avoid waiting for a long time. Enjoy!More

Meat is high quality despite being free-flow at an affordable price. Beverages. Definitely have what you want. There are twinning tea bags and soft drinks that you can choose from. They also provide 'pearl' if you would like to add it in your drinks to...make it bubble tea. Soup Base is great. The mala soup is not the typical oily type. The taste is strong and yummy to go with the food. Wide variety of dessert. There are more than ten flavours of hagen daz ice cream to choose from. Definitely satisfy your craving for ice cream. Besides that, there is also fruits and cakes.More
