The Mala Fragrant Wok has a base of $2.50 to cover the cost of spices and cooking one's selected ingredients ($1.50 to $2.50 each). We picked a scrumptious combination of lotus roots, black fungus, mushrooms, venison and QQ chewy noodles. These were stir-fried in a wok with mala spices for a moderately spicy, numbing effect which beckoned for rice. Ask them to increase the spiciness if you are a chilli head! Moohehe.
Also good to eat here is the Mini Steamboat ($3 for soup base) which offers Tom Yum, Mala, Tomato and Mushroom soup stocks. We tried the mushroom soup and loved its deep earthy flavours with a gentle sweetness. Clean and light, it was a delight to drink. Pick ingredients like veggies, seafood and meats for a simple but enjoyable steamboat.
