Steamboat often goes hand-in-hand with cold weather. But in Singapore, who care? We have this hot food at any time of the day, and any season of the year. Just because we love good food. In this week’s article, we are looking forward on Mala Steamboat. What is that?
Mala is a spicy and numbing sauce originating from China, particularly the Chong Qing and Si Chuan region, which has now found a home in Singapore. Consisting of chilli pepper and various herbs and spices, it is simmered in oil before being served. The level of spiciness can be adjusted as well.
