New ma la stall just behind the office. While flavours seem slightly muted - the xiao la is more salty-spicy than tongue-numbing - we found the spread of ingredients fresh and the bill very pocket-friendly!

My ma la order of noodles, cabbage, mushrooms, beancurd skin and pork belly would typically cost me close to $10 (sometimes more), but this big bowl only set me back $7.50. Score.
