You can now get the famous spicy and flavourful mala from Ri Ri Hong Ma La Xiang Guo at Dakota Crescent

by Kylynn Seng

Mention the word mala, and most people would immediately think of Chinatown — more specifically, Ri Ri Hong Ma La Xiang Guo at People’s Park Food Centre. 

While the popular stall (as proven by their constant snaking queues) has previously opened an outlet at Hougang, East-siders will be glad to know that they’ve opened yet another branch at Dakota Crescent.

For those of you who think you can handle the heat, this is a great time to test just how good your spice tolerance really is, since the mala here is known to be extra spicy and numbing. Patrons have also raved about how affordable and flavourful it is, so you’ll want to come with an empty stomach to eat your fill!

Choose from mildly spicy, spicy, and extra spicy — but be warned, even the mildly spicy is… well, not mild. You can also opt non spicy, but you’ll probably get flamed (speaking from experience).

They also offer a choice of Xiang Guo (dry) or Mala Soup, so you can enjoy your chosen ingredients in your preferred style. Plus, they charge by weight (with the exception of prawns), where ingredients will set you back just S$2/100g. That’s great news for meat lovers, since the OG stall actually charges S$2-3 depending on what meats you select!

Other than mala, you can also get dishes like Green Pepper Hot Grilled Fish (S$20), Chong Qing Spicy Chicken (S$12), Fried Lamb with Cumin (S$14), and so much more. If you’re on a tight budget, you can also try their most affordable meal — Fried Cabbage with Rice, which costs just S$3
