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

This has been my regular mlxg spot near work. Theirs is saucy and more heavily seasoned. Definitely make sure you opt for less oil and salt, because even though I usually do, it’s still more oily than the usuals 😂 I like that their ingredients are always fresh.

Back to this mala spot after quite a while! Glad we had foresight and bought bubble teas before we sat down to eat 😂 Had their medium spice but it was fiery! The mala here maintains its standard pretty well - fresh ingredients, thoroughly fried and reasonably priced.

Rainy day weather calls for anything spicy (am I right)! It’s a flat $1.98/100gm for the mlxg here and was surprised by their range of ingredients to pick from. They even had my favorite veg that I’ve only seen at Gong Yuan Mala thus far. Pretty good bowl in terms of flavour, though it was really quite oily (and I actually requested for less oil). It’s much less in its numbness as well. Would get this again and specifically request for much, much less oil 😂 They also serve the zi char style dishes!

57 Ma La Xiang Guo is a chain shop with outlets in Ang Mo Kio, Pasir Ris, etc. Pricing goes by portions instead of weight and ours here was $8.50. It wasn’t as good as we hoped for unfortunately. It wasn’t fried as thoroughly and the ingredients were mostly dominated by spice, but lacked flavour. The wide sweet potato noodles could be better cooked for a softer texture too.

The dish we preferred most for our meal here though still average. The fried dumplings had a pretty juicy filling of pork and shrimps. The slightly crisp base was thin and not too greasy. I would have liked it fried a little bit longer for a better crunch.

This comes in 3 sizes and we went for the small that had 5 pieces. Had pretty high expectations for this, and while decently seasoned and each of them had a good amount of broth in it, we found the filling too mushy soft for our liking. Skin was a bit thick as well.

Noodles had a good bite, but unfortunately our bowl was quite salty as a whole. The sauce had a strong peanuty smell, but the taste of it wasn’t as distinct (which was a plus for my preference). The saltiness aside, it had a likable tang. If you’re one who needs more heat, they have chilli on the side to add on.

On top of their new bentos, we took the chance to order more spicy lotus roots which got us hooked last round. Perfect balance of flavours + the heat and lingering numbness in it is suuuper addictive. It’s as good as I remembered If we didn’t stop ourselves, my sister and I probably would have finished a box each in one sitting 😂

Continuing from their Sichuan style kway chap & spicy cold dishes, 聪生家 SG Chengdu Family now has these Sichuan style bento boxes - 三道菜便当! The dishes rotate twice a week and ours was 鱼香茄子, 手撕包菜 & 土豆烧排骨 (garlic sauce eggplant, stir-fry cabbage & braised ribs). Sounds simple enough but they were delicious and really good with rice, especially the super unassuming cabbage!

Always enjoy getting 拉皮 and though they look similar, usually the difference lies in the combination of sauces. Yan Lai Ju’s had a distinct nuttiness but glad that the sauce wasn’t too thick, so that it was still refreshing to have. Was only hoping it was a tiny bit spicier! Noodles were still chewy even though it was delivered. It’s a bit pricy for the portion.

Pretty good dumplings with a balanced filling to skin ratio. Though these were delivered, the filling retained its juiciness.

Satisfied the ma la xiang guo cravings using HungryPanda a couple of times before this. They are a delivery service app new to our island and focuses on delivery of Chinese food. Wanted to try something different this time and chose dong bei cuisine from Yan Lai Ju. We ordered pork chives dumplings, chilled century egg tofu and cold potato noodles 东北大皮.

The chilled century egg tofu came in a bigger portion than we expected and was a good rendition as well. It was vinegary and spicy, which kept it appetising.

To be honest, we had a few delivery hiccups this time round (last few times were smooth though), but I must say, that their customer service was friendly and very efficient in resolving the issues. They are offering free coupon ang baos when you sign up and they can be used to offset delivery charges. More details can be found on their page. Thank you @hpdelivery_singapore for sharing this meal with me! ✨
