The first time I tried Mala Xiang Guo was at the hawker centre in Chinatown. Just like Yong Tau Foo, the customers have to pick the ingredients (veggies, meat or mushrooms) and hand them over to the staff. Then choose the level of spiciness and the staff will stir fry the ingredients in mala seasoning. If you need some carbs, there are instant noodles, rice and potato noodles to choose from.
I tried the Mala Xiang Guo in West Mall food court. From 11am to 3pm on weekdays, they offer a set meal (consisting of a bowl of pork/beef + veggies, a bowl of rice and soup) at only $6.80.
I chose the most spicy version and my lips were a bit numb after eating. The seasoning is a bit salty (no MSG detected though) so I need the white rice to neutralise it. Overall, I find the seasoning very addictive and I was already craving for it the next day.
It’s much more pricey to have it in food court compared to Chinatown, but for the convenience, I will definitely return to satisfy my cravings!
Had sudden cravings for fried carrot cake on weekend. The nearest place to get it is West Mall food court. The carrot cake there is pretty good but quite pricey compared to the coffee shops’.
I could decide whether to get the black or white version, so I ended up with the mixed flavors ($4+). The portion size is bigger than the usual single flavor, but I still find it pricey.
Anyway, quite yummy to have both the flavors. It’s a good mix of sweet and salty, and crispy and soft.
I have been wanting to get the Egg Ben from Coffee Bean, but twice I went to the outlet in West Mall, it was not available. And last week, I woke up super early, hoping that they will have it, but was disappointed again. Really wonder why that outlet doesn’t serve Egg Ben. Did they ran out of hollandaise sauce? Did the egg master went on holiday? Oh well…
Usually I will go for the Salmon Scramble but this time I tried the Ultimate Breakfast instead.
That was a very filling breakfast. The thick patty (though a bit dry) tasted pretty good with jam and the two turkey bacon were so crispy.
Pakcik said he didn’t see this set, or he wouldn’t have ordered the Egg Club Sandwich.
The breakfast set comes with a brewed coffee/tea, but I changed it to a regular latte (+$2.50).
This weekend I think I will try my luck again to see if they have Egg Ben.
