I have never had a “ma la xiang guo” with more “wok hei” than the one from “Wang Zai Kitchen” (stall #01-03 at Jalan Batu Food Centre). It’s definitely due to the hawker’s technique as well as the fact that he takes his time to fry. Together, they imbue whatever ingredients you choose with a tantalising “roasty” smokiness. That plus the crunchy pork lard I ALWAYS request for, propel their version of this popular highly-customisable dish to heights other stalls can only dream of.
