It is a rather known stall for its Fragrant Hot Pot, located at one end of the food court. As it is almost 9pm, there is not much selection in the display shelf left. Looking at the prices on the menu, I feel that it more on the high for a stall in food court. One selects the items from the shelf which is chargeable from vegetables $1.40/100grams, to mushrooms $2.60/100grams, to meat $3.20/100grams to seafood $4.50/100grams.

A bowl of rice is priced at $1 per bowl and soup base is priced at $3 to $6 depending on the amount of selected items. For the small amount of items which I choose to go with a bowl of rice, I am charged $9.95. I have selected it to cook in a less spicy way, which tastes just right for me. Like the topping of peanuts in the dish, which give an additional crunchy to the dish. Beware of the pepper corns which have a quite effect on the tongue.

There's always an ongoing line there

The food was not cheap it was $28 total and we had Kang Kong, White Cabbage, a bit of shrimp, beef, chicken, and pork. The food is priced based on the weight of your food and the cost per gram. Your dishes are cooked in their house mala sauce and garnished with some peanuts.

I don't eat chili padi but I could take the mala sauce as long as I had a bowl of rice. It's really a very satisfying meal as the food is served hot and it makes you feel warm inside. The trick is not to let it touch your lips and to avoid biting on the black small pepper balls which will make you feel numb. Overall, though priced high, my tummy did not get upset from the food so I definitely will consider heading back there sometime

I am a big fan of Ma La Hot Pot thus when someone told me that there's one at the Food Republic of 313 Somerset, I had to try it.This Ma La Hot Pot stall is definitely one of the most expensive I had been to. Even their vegetables cost $1.40 for 80g. The cheapest Ma La Hot Pot Stall that I went to had vegetables at $0.80 for 100g.However, the plus point for this stall is that they keep all their food in these chillers for good hygiene and maintain freshness.I picked some of the ingredients I lik

I picked some of the ingredients I like for a take away. Overall I feel that it's a little too oily, but most Ma La Hot Pot are like this.. which is why I usually prefer soup.

Their pot base charge is also slightly more expensive at $3 compared to $2 of most stalls that I had went to.

This is my first time trying Fragrant Hot Pot, we have to pick the ingredients that we want and then pass the picked items and let them weight and charge accordingly; I took chicken, pork, black fungus, lotus, toufu, etc. They cooked the stuff that we pick in a SUPER spicy, oily, sauces. I can't even feel my tongue as it’s spicy to the point that it’s numbing. So best eat it with plenty of rice.

Super hot dish that can blow fire from your mouth, nose & ear! Just a gentle reminder for those who are not train to take super spicy food. The dish itself can be tasty provided you don't mind it to be super spicy or do what I suggested - request for less chilli & black pepper to be included in your dishes! : )nevertheless, it is an expensive choice in a food court

They do not have a wide range of items for you to select, few type of veggies, 3 type of meat and some seafood. You pick your own ingredients @ $3.50-$4.50 per 100g, and they will stir-fry with the ma la sauce.

When eating Ma La Pot you will notice that the flavours appear richer and more intense... Expect to have some numbness. We had middle level of spiciness and it was ok for me, lots of black pepper taste thou. It will be perfect if the ma la is more flavorful, beside the dried chilli and black pepper, there isn't much taste to it.

It is nice but too expensive for food court, I pick n mix and they weigh and fry. It is at 100g for range of 3.50 to 4.50(depending on the meat or vegetable). With the work based of $3, my dish add up to be $10. I chosen the middle spice. Therefore it is not very spicy. It is nice with the bean curd skin I chose. Lovely. The chef inside the kitchen cooked them with the prepared ingredient, stir fry awhile. If you love china ma la, I think you will like this

My lunch partner suggested that since I like Mala hot pot, I should try this dish at the foodcourt. You choose your own ingredients and they mix it up for you. I find the mala spicy enough and my partner chose lots of vegetables which I like. The vegetables are fresh and every bit produces crunchy sound. We had cabbage, fungus, lotus roots, celery, luncheon meat, bamboo shoots. The presentation was also quite interesting! It came in this huge bowl that almost look like a basin! We spent $

We spent $25.15 for the meal which I think it's a little pricey in terms of foodcourt setting.
