Even though the only “fall” we experience in Singapore is rainfall, many of us tend to crave for piping hot soup such as ramen, jjigae, and mala tang.

If you’ve got a hankering for the latter, it’s high time you visited Xiao Man Spicy Soup in one-north.

Occupying a small shop space in Fusionopolis, Xiao Man Spicy Soup, with its cosy Muji-esque interior, is a relatively hidden gem for those who don’t frequent the area. Don’t feel like jostling with the office crowds? Your best bet would be to visit during off-peak hours, especially on weekdays, if you want to snag a seat.

Like most mala tang spots, you’ve got a myriad of fresh ingredients to choose from, so you can load up on all your favourite meats and seafood (like beef short plate, pork belly, and even salmon), crabstick, broccoli, lotus root, instant ramen, cheese tofu, and many, many more.

Ingredients are priced at S$2.80 per 100g, with the exception of selected individually priced items.

There are four different types of broth with three spice levels (mild, spicy, hot) to choose from — Tomato (my favourite!), Bone, Vegetarian, and of course, Spicy Mala. Many enjoy the signature mala broth, with its savoury, mildly sour flavour profile that can certainly pack a punch.

Condiments-wise, you can jazz up your broth with vinegar and garlic, but both the homemade sesame peanut paste and chilli come highly recommended.

A well-made chilli oil should be smoky, savoury, and fragrant, without being too salty, and Xiao Man’s rendition ticks all the right boxes.

Mala tang isn’t the only dish on the menu; the eatery also sells desserts like Snow Fungus Peach Gum (S$3) and Sichuan Ice Jelly (S$3). You can even complete the meal by ordering a Drink and Dessert Combo for just S$4.

Some say Xiao Man has the best mala tang in Singapore, but you can be the judge of that!
