Besides the freshness of the food and the perfect balance of mala sauce, the prices are pretty reasonable as well.

Not too oily, salty or numbing.

Definitely one of the must try for mala fans.

Third time at @welovetangtang 趟烫麻辣烫 located at Selegie / Parklane.

Besides their mala soup (which is really one of the better ones I've tried), they also have tomato and chicken broth 😊

Decided to try their chicken soup this time round. While it is pretty flavourful, it is not as rich or creamy as I would like it to be.

Nonetheless, the ingredients are really fresh! I personally also like that they offer noodles that isn't Maggi Mee. However, waiting time was 25 mins although they wasn't full house.

Will be back for the Mala noodles 😋🍜.

Lured in by the smell and wow, it was a disappointment on so many levels.

1. Food wasn't fresh - wanted to eat fish but.. It really didn't look very fresh and wasn't in the mood to risk it.

2. Pricing - a standard charge of $2.68/100g which includes your vegetables and noodles. This means 100g of Maggi Mee would cost you $2.68 but if you get rice instead, it will cost you probably $1.

Since the food didn't look very fresh, we gravitated towards the preserved food which was a mistake because they're so heavy.

Guess the total cost for 1 person 🙃

3. Taste: the soup is okay, decent enough.

4. Service: the cashier initially charged me $36 and I looked at her and asked - one bowl for $36? Then she realised she keyed in the weight twice 🤦‍♀️ if I didn't asked then I guess I'll be paying $36 for this bowl of mala tang.

Never coming back.

Hong Chang Frog Porridge and BBQ Fish - supper place that opens till 2am (Tues to Sun).

The garlic butter squid looks unassuming but it was so good?! You can never go too wrong with garlic butter. Just imagine the fragrance of garlic with the creaminess of butter... On fresh, chewy squid. And the onions absorbed all the goodness so we ate it up too 😂🦑

Love their sambal stingray - fresh, tender and lovely spicy sambal sauce with a tinge of sweetness.

Mala Fen, the taste is decent but nothing to rave about.

Mala or Suan lela Fen typically doesn't have much ingredients such as meat. They did give some chicken meatballs but it was very little and too expensive for $6. The best Suan La Fen I had is still at Chinatown.

Was craving mala and I guess this will do for now...

🌟Zhong Guo La Mian XLB 中国拉面小笼包🌟 needs no introduction.

My favourite place for 锅贴 (Guo Tie / pot stickers). Thin, soft skin with juicy meat within and a ring of crispy skin on the outside.

The 红油抄手 (Hong You Chao Should / Chilli oil wanton) has silky smooth wanton skin with just the right balance of vinegar and chilli.

The 小笼包 (Xiao Long Bao / Soup Dumpling) is better than Ding Tai Feng 🙊.

📍Chinatown Complex Red Zone!

From the stall BBQ Seafood Kitchen was very fresh, tender and the sambal has a good kick to it!

$4.50, never ending slices of beef. Very generous. Soup is light but flavourful. Ramen is very q, cooked to perfection.

An amazing bowl of noodles.

Curry Hakka Yong Tau Foo.

More spicy than Lemak.

Generous portion of ytf for $3.50 🤤.

Zhichar the other day via @grabfoodsg from KPT 78 Zhi Char.
🌟 Special Tofu
🌟 Pork Ribs (排骨王)
🌟 Gong Bao Chicken 🌟 Kai Lan with Salted Fish.
Both the Pork Ribs and Special Tofu were very well done. Pork was flavourful and tender. Special tofu was soft and topped with minced pork and quality sauce.
Gong Bao chicken on the other hand did not taste like the Gong Bao sauce at all! It tasted more like oyster sauce plus corn flour.
Veggies sauce was also very odd with no taste of salted fish.
Although the rating from Grab food was around 4, personally, I think it is more 3.5.

Alot of people complain about the service here but I thought it was okay. Yes, it is crowded. Yes, you have to find your own seats. Yes, they may not be clearing tables as they are super busy.

Yes, there is a queue for tables and then to order and of course, waiting for food. In total, the wait was 40 mins during lunch.

But the fried rice priced at $6.80 is really comparable or better than Ding Tai Feng. Love how crispy and tender the pork chop is. The fried rice is also hot and fragrant! Love it.

Would be back if not for the venue not being very accessible.
