This store is actually 3 restaurants combined to one - Fatbird, Taan and Huolala. So it offers a wide range of food from chicken pot to skewers and mala! Got only the mala this time cos the waitress informed us that whatever we ordered ($20 worth of mala) was quite alot for 2pax, and can hold back on the skewers (how honestπŸ˜…). The mala was really on the spicier side, and portions were generous. Though one thing missing was the numbing effect of the peppercorns. We were also recommended to try their tomato soup, but it fell short of expectations cos we thought it'll be like HDL but really hahaha. Its a good to have but not a must have. Can just stick to a full portion of mala if you can take the spice. Oh yes! And they've happy hour promo for draft beer with a full pint of suntory at $12 πŸ‘πŸΌ

Having eaten from the δΈ­θΎ£ bowl prior, I could barely taste anything from this bowl. Nevertheless, my family members really enjoyed this and had only praises for the mala sauce.

The price structure is as follows: $2 pot base, $1.80/100g vegetables, $2.50/100g mushrooms and meats, $3/100g seafood.

I found medium spicy really spicy, but my spice tolerance isn't the highest to begin with. πŸ˜… On the rare occassions that I got relief from the numbing sensation, I enjoyed the savoury flavour of the spice blend. The pork belly was my favourite of everything as it was more lean than fatty. Another item that deserves a mention is the tofu skin which soaked up the sauce very well.

Generous portions
Nice ambience
Friendly staff
Reasonable price
Flavourful mala that is not too numbing on the tongue
Free tissue provided

Seriously, what more can a diner ask for?
**note, burpple beyond's lunch buffet is not available. I think they stopped doing buffets.

EDIT 19 DEC 2020: the restaurant has since fallen out of my "hit" list because standard dropped after the business changed hands. I have since stopped patronising.

Bought with Burpple 1 for 1 for the 10 dollars off the mala hotpot! We got the medium mala dry and it was SUPERRR HOT. Compared to the Clementi Mala this one is a lot more hot! hahaha so beware! But food was good and otherwise worth!! 😊

$31.50 ($18.80++ buffet charge & $8++ soup base charge)

variety was good
