Before we dip our chopsticks into a hotpot, it’s a must to select our hotpot soup base. Over at Awana Garden Hot Pot, you’ll find eight choices of broths, each with its own distinct flavour.

If you’re looking for a herbal and nourishing soup base, go for their Aroma Malaysia broth, which boasts rich, aromatic flavours from cloves, cardamom, and star anise. Their Tongkat Ali Herbal Soup, comprising wild Tongkat Ali sourced from Genting Highlands, is another hearty choice.

For those who prefer a thicker soup base, try the Nyonya Secrets Broth – the restaurant’s take on Peranakan curry – or The Indonesian Connection, a Javanese shrimp-based soup.

If you feel overwhelmed by the options available, don’t worry – choose to have a single (from RM50/pot) hotpot, or twin (from RM26/pot) and quarter (from RM25/pot) hotpot that lets you try several different broths in one go.

Awana Garden Hot Pot takes pride in their sustainably sourced ingredients, with vegetables on the menu grown at their Atrium Greenhouse. So while most hotpot places we know of have proteins as the star of the menu, a highlight here is fresh veggies that are grown at the restaurant.

Patrons can also purchase boxes of fresh leafy vegetables or mushrooms from their greenhouse to bring home after finishing their meals. Or opt to have vegetables (RM8/each) such as red butterhead, green romaine, and fan pak choy while dining at the restaurant.
