Do note that there is a minimum order of 300g, so come hungry!

Afterwards, opt for your “spice power”, ranging from mild to hot — there’s even a non-spicy Fragrant Garlic option for those who can’t take the heat.

Otherwise, order the Stir Fry Chicken Hotplate (S$18.90), which can easily feed two to three diners, comprising chicken stir-fried with garlic, ginger and the eatery’s signature sauce. Choose between mala or soy, with add-ons like Baby Corn (S$1.80), Shiitake Mushroom (S$1.80), and Fried Tau Kwa (S$2.80), and you’re all set for a hearty meal.

All ingredients used at Ma La Power are halal-certified but we hear that they are in the process of undergoing halal certification.
