Xiao Manniu Mala Xiangguo at Star Vista

Mala Xiangguo

When I first saw this place (1 Vista Exchange Greem #02-25), I was excited to see yet another mala xiangguo stall at a foodcourt, hopefully being a sign of more to come. But this one was kinda nasty, as it lacked the punch of Sichuan peppercorns...and was surprisingly watery at the bottom! One of these days we should try that stall that I saw at Jem to see if it is any good.

Addendum: I just came back to this place four weeks later, and realized that if one requests the spiciest level, then the dish finally becomes bearable enough to eat. I'd still prefer to go elsewhere, but if I'm stuck here, then the trick is to request the highest level of heat.

The Jem mala xiangguo (at the foodcourt) is my favourite and the peanuts add a crunchy aroma to the dish!

yup agree! i prefer the one at Jem's foodcourt (Cookhouse). More flavorful imo.
