Heard good things about Canteen 9's mala and decided to give a try. Prices are very reasonable, we got this + 2 bowls of rice for $12.50. However, was pretty disappointed by the mala here as it was purely 辣 (spicy) with no 麻 (numb) at all. And the essence of mala, at least imo, is the appropriate numbness that the dish gives. Still standing by my verdict that Canteen 1 has the best mala in NTU regardless of the rave reviews that this place has
