6. Shu DaXia HotPot Genting @ Resort Hotel
Another hotpot restaurant in Genting Highlands:
Shu DaXia HotPot resembles a dynasty palace. There are golden lattice decor and red lanterns.

Mushroom soup is a less spicy alternative. Combine the tasty broth with juicy and fresh fish filet for even more flavor to the already divine soup!
But the location of the restaurant is a little obscure and hard to find. Head towards Genting Grand Hotel and then towards Marrybrown to get there.
It’s advisable to book at least a week in advance. Above all, bring your Genting membership card to enjoy an extra 5% discount!
