This cost around $40 (for about 3-4 people), it's pricey for mala but the taste and quality is pretty good. The taste is more of "la" and less "ma" (less peppercorns) though.

Of course price varies depending on what you take and how much you take and mine cost around $20 😅 although it's expensive I must say I quite enjoy the mala. Especially the sweet potato noodles that soaked up those sauce. But one thing I dislike is their tofu. It has a weird taste to it so I'm assuming it's not fresh? Me BEANing nice should not comment further on this. We ordered xiao la and it's very bearable for people who can't really take spice (like my friend 😂). And it's not that oily which is a plus point for me. Other than that it's just a simple mala xiang guo ✌🏻

You can choose your own meat and veggies and have them weighed at the cashier. The taste was descent but the price was a bit more expensive than the usual mala hot pot.

I feel no shame in admitting that this is my first ever mala meal. Due to mala being ridiculously overpriced, I’ve always given it a wide berth, opting for something much more value for money instead.

However, I ended up at Xiao Man Niu mainly due to the fact that everywhere else was packed to the rafters. I sympathetically patted my wallet and started picking out my ingredients of pork shabu shabu, chicken, Taiwanese sausage, fishballs, luncheon meat, instant noodles and assorted veggies. Fortunately, the damage at the end of it was about $25, which was a lot better than expected.

As for the mala itself, I was chose Xiao la due to all the stories of just how butt scorchingly violent some mala could be. It was nicely spicy, and didn’t overpower any other flavors in the xiang guo.

Overall, for $25, my first mala was actually pretty decent.

Freshly prepared ingredients, we ordered the 2pax set which came with a generous helping of vegetables, mushroom and meat. Although we opted for the mildly spicy level, it still packed a punch.
