What’s better than spicy hot pot that goes in hot and comes out hotter? Well, unlimited refill at one fixed price, of course!
This is essentially what Fei Fan Hot Pot at Subang Courtyard offers, while I would have been a lot more excited about the prospect of buffetsteamboat/hotpot 20 years ago, I was still pretty excited about it when Carol suggested that we check it out.
Fei Fan Hot Pot at SS15 Courtyard
We did, and as it turned out, we weren’t the only two who thought paying RM 45.90++ per pax to fill our stomach to the brim was a great idea.
There was about an hour’s wait before our turn, which led to me getting a hair cut, and Carol did her eyebrow.. or something.
Anyway, finally we got in at around 9 p.m. with the host ushering us to a shared table located at a semi-outdoor dining area, which worked out just fine to diffuse the steamboat smell while not being overly too warm since it’s pretty late at night. No complains from me other than it being a bit far from the buffet spread.
condiments, vegetables, balls, mushrooms, and more
Fei Fan offers quite a decent selection of condiments with just over a dozen types of various spicy/salty/fresh “stuff” you can mix up. They include cili padi, raw garlic, green onion, cilantro, fermented tofu, soya sauce, chili paste, and more. With that many choices, you are probably bound to get overly excited and mess it up.
As for soup base, there are four to choose from, with a maximum of two choices – pork bone soup, pepper pig’s stomach soup, tomato soup, and spicy mala soup.
We went with pork bone & spicy mala, though I’ve heard good things about the other two types as well.
unlimited refill on everything you see here
The way it works is like this – pick the ready-made items from buffet spread – including various types of vegetable, mushroom, balls, tofu, and so forth.
There’s also a self-ordering sheet that includes pork/chicken/beef balls, shrimp dumpling, chives dumpling, tofu pok with pork, fish noodle, and beef/chicken/pork slices, intestine, liver, and such. You can use the sheet multiple times but food wastage will be charged 20% of total bill, which I thought is fair.
these thin sliced meat’s pretty good, as attested by Carol
What’s the verdict you may ask?
Well, Fei Fan Hot Pot certainly offers great value especially if you’re a big eater. The mala soup offers a good enough kick, while those pork bone soup was quite proper as well.
The meat slices might be a tad thin, but that also means they get cooked fast, and with unlimited order it’s not an issue anyway. I also like that there’s enough options for greens.
Overall it was a rather positive experience and I would certainly happy to go there again, but this time around I’d be sure to call ahead and make bookings.

One of my favorite canned food is the stewed canned pork. It is basically savory heaven contained within a can that can be unleashed upon in the kitchen at your convenience throughout the clock. If I had to build a nuclear bunker, this will definitely be one of the stocked up item for me.
Today, I’m going to share with you one of the easiest ways to make use of this godsend ingredient – by making canned stew pork with potato dish that goes very well with steamed rice.
cooking potato with canned pork
one canned stew pork (big)
3 potatoes, cut in 1/2 cm thick slices
2-3 cloves of garlic, smashed
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 tablespoon dark soya sauce (optional)
potato with stewed pork
boil the potato until soft
heat up cooking oil and fry garlic until fragrant
add canned pork, add potato
add dark soya sauce (optional)
mix well and serve while hot
This dish can be prepared in less than 20 minutes, super simple and positively delicious. Give it a try if you like some of those homey cholesterol laden taste.
One of the many wonderful dishes that mom makes when we were a kid involves fatty pork and meehun, and whenever she cooked them, we would finish it in record time. The succulent and overly savory pork with those soft vermicelli never disappoint, and I’m glad to say that I finally manage to do it at our own kitchen.
I present to you – fried meehun with canned stew pork, the sin food.
ingredients – meehun, vege, garlic, canned pork, chili padi
The ingredients are plenty simple and should be available from just about anywhere in the world with an Asian/Chinese grocery store.
canned stew pork
choi sam (or any leafy vegetable)
half a clove of garlic
chili padi if you like it spicy
2 tablespoon cooking oil
soya sauce to taste
dark soya sauce (1 teaspoon)
fry the greens first, then the pork
soak meehun in water for 30 minutes (or until soft)
heat up the cooking oil and fry garlic until fragrant
add vegetables (always add the stems first as they take longer to cook) and cook for a couple minutes
add canned pork and stir for a minute
add meehun, chili padi, soya sauce, and dark soya sauce
stir, and close the lid of frying pan for a minute to steam and avoid losing too much moisture
serve while hot!
add some soya sauce & dark soya sauce, then steam it a bit
The recipe is fairly simple and you really can’t go wrong. A big can of stew pork is probably good enough for four portions of meehun, do use appropriately sized frying pan for this job. We cooked for only 2 of us so the amount of pork we ended up consuming was a bit too insane.
