Time Out says

Just a couple of doors north of Dragon Hot Pot Russell Street lies beloved Chengdu chain Malu Bian Bian Hot Pot. This comparatively laid back, 22-seater serves three delicate and nuanced broths: Sichuan spicy (pork and chicken), pork, and pickled veggies. The broths here smack more of the subtle flavours of Sichuan’s neighbouring province Yunnan than the heavier, meatier varieties common in Sichuan and Chongqing. While Malu Bian Bian Hot Pot also offers a solid range of meats, the ingredient cabinets here skew more to the vegetable side of the malatang equation, making for a lighter, fresher experience, and it features the warmest service of the bunch.
