Hid here in Big Box’s food court from the crazy rain and came across this ma la xiang guo stall. It was pretty popular for a quiet food court, so we made a mental note to come back to try. It’s also the first stall I’ve seen to offer free flow complimentary white rice and herbal soup!

Their menu says that its $1.80 for each portion of veg and $2.80 for the meats but how they actually calculated the price was quite a mystery? Bowls are brought into the kitchen after orders and payment comes afterwards. We didn’t order much but it was $12.60 for this. The queue and order system wasn’t very organised too, but just observe and you’ll figure it out. 😂

We got the small level of spice (小辣) but it was much spicier than expected! The gravy was thick (consistency like a paste), quite oily and too salty to have on its own. It tasted quite different from the usual mlxg I prefer!
