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

Priced per portion, the mlxg here is very affordable, at $1 for veg, $2 for chicken/pork and $3 for beef/mutton/seafood! It was very fragrant with just the right amount of peppercorns, but a little oily and had much less salt - personally didn’t find this bowl as shiok cause I’m all for stronger flavours! Spice levels are also lower than usual, so take it up a notch if you’re a fan.

I don’t take beef but what’s here is a mixture of beef tendon, brisket and tripe among other vegetables like baby cabbage, potato and turnip - braised and then simmered for more than 4 hours in spices.

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

Unlike most liang pi I’ve had, the sauce here is much thicker and more savoury - wasn’t the kind I expected but it was still nice! The noodles are cut thinner than usual and although they weren’t as chewy, the flavours were absorbed thoroughly. Would have liked a touch more acidity to balance out the heaviness better though.


A pretty nice side to have, a common Chinese skewer you’d find with a rub of spices.

Though these crispy bites were pretty addictive, there were more fried chicken skin than chicken chunks. Probably best to manage expectations.

A good simple dish to have as a palate cleanser in-between the mouths of ma la. Refreshing smashed cucumbers with a generous amount of garlic!

Good sharing appetiser to go for! The beancurd strips are tossed in an addictive sour-spicy sauce. Ours were gone pretty quickly! 😂


Ordered a variety of skewers and our favs of the night were the Grilled Bread 烤面包 ($1), and Grilled Scallop 碳烤带子 ($4.80)! All skewers are grilled back in their kitchen but are kept warm on the heated box placed on each table. Most of the skewers are rubbed in the same spices and you get to choose the level of spice you prefer. Their Grilled Bread surprised us the most, it was toasty and buttery, topped with lots of sugar but still had a touch of savouriness. Probably sinful but tasty!


Not the best as their noodles could be much softer and chewier, but that tangy spicy broth was very appetising!


Came by with a friend’s strong recommendation and I loved it! I can’t say for sure how authentic this is but it was addictive with a good heat and had a tingling numbness. I especially liked how it wasn’t too salty, but sufficiently savoury and flavourful! It’s a little pricey but the portion of noodles was huge with an egg, pork chunks and vegetables. Be sure to toss them up quick to mix in the chili flakes and paste thoroughly. Think their noodles are handmade, but mine were a little soft - might be due to the takeaway. Will be back to have it again!

Chinatown Point added lots of new food stalls to their basement 1 area and Ah Xin Malatang’s one of them! Ordering’s simple: 1) Pick what you’d like at a standard $1.80/100g (minimum 300g), 2) Select your soup out of the 6 they have like mala, herbal, wild mushroom, etc., 3) Choose your spice level and 4) Decide if you want to upgrade to a set meal at an extra $4 for a Chinese pancake (煎饼果子) or $4.80 for that and a drink.

Price is affordable compared to other mala tang around, but it wasn’t as flavourful as Gong Yuan Mala Tang that’s at Orchard Xhange, Westgate and Heartland Mall. Ah Xin’s tasted a little more nutty with a more muted pork bone broth base, but it’s also not as salty. Ingredients were pretty fresh but preparation takes quite a while.

Shi Xiang Ge’s most famous for their Hot and Spicy Intestine Shaved Noodles 麻辣肥肠刀削面 ($5), but I read a few reviews of its pungent intestine flavours and decided to go for something else. Since the handmade shaved noodles is one of the highlights here, we requested for a swap from the default vermicelli and they kindly allowed! Glad we did as the noodles were of the right thickness, cooked well and not at all doughy. As for the spicy broth, it wasn’t too oily, hence surprisingly drinkable. There was a nice lingering numbness too, but it unfortunately wasn’t that fragrant/flavourful albeit being quite heavily seasoned.
