Addictive spicy hot pot

From only one stall that I have been patroning. Very fast expanding, now they have 3 stalls spread out within the same hawker.  Not only China customer, our local Singaporeans and Malaysian are their supporters.  When I brought friends to come and eat, they liked it very much.

Some friends even known this place, and so coincidentally that we were talking about the same place that we should go for dinner.

The only cons are the place is already hot and stuff, so after the spicy hot pot, you imagine, how much sweat we will end up with.  Next it's the chilli flakes that I have been painfully to dig out.  If not, these chilli flakes will stick to my throat.  Very uncomfortable for me.

Overall, it's a nice and addictive hot pot.  For one, they don't charge the minimum cost for the pot coverage.  Just pick the variety from the display, if I am not wrong, veggies cost about 1buck for each serving, and 2 bucks for meat each serving. White rice another cost.  

Dfferent grade of chilli you want them to stir fry with.  With no chilli, little, medium & extra chilli.  I have tried all the grades.  No chilli, basically no kick out of eating this.  So unless I was sick, otherwise, go for medium or extra chilli.  Be careful, the extra chilli can be extremely hot, because they will put many pepper balls other than chilli flakes.

est mala hot pot in Singapore.  Good price.  Good quality ingredients.  Spicy as can be.  I love it and i love bringing white people here who have never tried it.  A big pot of this with a sugar cane juice and i am in heaven.

Great food...

Was recommended by my one of my friend from China. 1st, pick the ingredient u want;2nd, choose the level of spicy, less spicy/average/extreme...3rd, request for extra flavour if u like the feeling of numb in your mouth, and pay the cash.. 
But recently it doesn't taste that good already.. hope it's temporary...

Beware of Chili!

Friends told me recently that they found a shop which offers the 'Mala Hot Pot' in a 'Yong Tau Fu' style at People's Park Food Center which I tried before in beijing. We were really hungry so went for a big, medium spicy and vegetarian version with lots of vegetables, glass noodles, potato, tofu and beancurd skin (10$). It came out of the kitchen piping hot and smelled wonderful. We  got our grub on and it was exactly as I remembered it from China. The ingredients were all fresh and not overcooked, all covered with a glaze of their biting chili gravy with enough sichuan peppers to numb your entire pie hole. It started quite harmless but the more we worked our way down where the ingredients soaked in the gravy it slowly started burning holes into my stomach. Let's just say we were happy we went for medium. Oh and the noodles, loved the noodles, next time I have to ask for a double portion. This place is great and as 'Dry Pot' is not yet so commonly available in Singapore I will definately come back here for more.
