Unveiling the Spicy World of Malatang in Auckland CBD


Explore the rich history and unique culinary experience of Malatang at Three Flavour Malatang in Auckland CBD.

The Origins of Malatang

Malatang, which translates to “spicy numbing soup,” originated in the Sichuan province of China. It is a beloved street food known for its liberal use of Sichuan peppercorns and chilli peppers, creating a distinctive numbing and spicy flavour profile. Originally, Malatang was popular among workers and travellers looking for a quick and hearty meal.

The concept of Malatang is simple yet ingenious. Vendors set up large pots of simmering broth filled with a variety of fresh ingredients. Customers can choose from an array of vegetables, meats, tofu, and noodles, which are then cooked in the spicy and aromatic broth. This communal style of eating not only provides a warm and comforting meal but also fosters a sense of community as people gather around the steaming pot.
