For my ultimate love of ma la (麻辣) especially.

Ingredients were fresh and the place was nice to dine in + there was a good playlist of mando pop playing the whole time 😛 They had a whole fridge of meat, seafood and assorted meat/seafood balls on top of the usual vegetables selection. The bowl was very fragrant and garlicky, though I’d like it to be slightly more thoroughly fried. Heat was great and it was just right in saltiness. It’s not as numbing, but you probably can request for more when ordering. Other than mlxg, they also have a few soup options - tomato, chicken, etc. Was a bit pricey, but will be back to try the ma la soup!

Psst, we came by on V Day Eve so the Beyond deals were locked, but they actually have deals for both their lunch steamboat buffet and ma la xiang guo. That’d be very worth!

Dropped by Green on Earth’s new spot at The Rail Mall! They’ve moved from their previous location in Bukit Panjang to this big brand new space next to Springleaf Prata. This space is air-conditioned and nicely renovated, a huge change in atmosphere from the previous.

Went straight ahead for the mlxg. Really glad that prices have remained the same and it was as good as always. The variety of ingredients to pick from seems bigger now too, with different mock meats like abalone and sea cucumbers. They also launched a new membership plan (woohoo!!!!), where you’d get a $10 off with 100 points accumulated: $1 = 1 point!

I’m not a mutton fan but this was not bad without any stench.

Thank you @damiaohotpot for having us and @brandcellar for the kind invite! ✨

Here’s one of the ready-to-eat side dishes that Da Miao offers, grilled shishamo in peppercorns, red chilli peppers, ginger and garlic. It leaned more to the sticky sweet side and had a pretty good kick of spice.

These skewers of spicy chicken kidney dusted with chilli flakes came paired with king oyster mushroom chunks. We might have cooked it too long as it was slightly chewy. Good to check-in with the waiters for the best cooking time too!

Though I still prefer the usual kelp slices and ribbons, this was a nice change. We were recommended to eat it after a minute of cooking to retain the slight crunchy texture.

Shrimp paste has always been a must order for me during steamboats, so this was something I was excited to try! While pricey, I really liked it with the shrimp paste inside wrapped with the crunchy and soft bamboo fungus. It was good in both broths that we had, with the bamboo fungus soaking the flavours up.

Enjoyed this especially with the Beauty Collagen Soup ($42 for Whole Pot, $32 for Yuan Yang Pot). Pork was tender and there was this touch of numbness and spice that was very addictive.

First tried Da Miao a long while back and it didn’t leave that big an impression. Their ma la, Da Miao Special Spicy Soup ($22 for Whole Pot, $20 for Yuan Yang), tasted much better than I remembered! If you want to keep the ma la drinkable, remember to request for less oil and spice, as their default is kept more authentic to what they serve in Chengdu - where the fiery broth is more for dipping than drinking.

The new Beauty Collagen Soup is made through hours of simmering with pig skin, chicken feet, pumpkin, pork bone, fish maw, etc. It was creamy and extra comforting to have. I especially liked the touch of sweetness lent from the pumpkins. It’s pricey but also came ready with a good number of fish maw.

Tried another new spot for vegetarian mlxg that’s tucked in Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre! It was quite affordable - this big bowl was around $11. They had lots of ingredients to choose from and all were fresh. There’s 5 levels of spice and we went for the 3rd of medium spice. It was less salty and not as spicy than the usuals, so I’d definitely recommend to go higher if you’re usually a 中 or 大辣 person! The fragrance and numbing spice was present, but it wasn’t as thoroughly fried as it could have, especially for the sweet potato noodles. It was still a pretty tasty bowl, but my absolute favourite is still Green on Earth!

Other than mlxg, Nature Vegetarian Delights has a huge extensive menu with lots of dishes - even ramen and a steamboat buffet. Will definitely be back to try the other items.

Came telling myself to try a new soup base but still ended up with mala ops 😂 The outlet here is small, so it might be a little difficult to get seats especially during meal times. The variety was fresh but service could be a tad more attentive. Suntec’s outlet is still our preferred one thus far.
