I’m addicted to the xia hua (prawn paste) as you can obviously tell from my photo that I ordered 3 full portions for 4 diners 😋 Favourite soup base is of course mala! My hai di lao hack is to ask for the prawn paste sauce so you don’t have to pay extra for the usual condiments and fruits. That is if you don’t mind not customising your own sauce and is willing to give the 小菜 a miss. They usually will serve you fruits at the end of your meal regardless.
