11 Mala Snacks In Singapore That Will Set Your Tongue Ablaze Including Mala Fish Skin & Mala Oden
Aside from salted egg and bubble tea, there are few things that make Singaporeans as happy as mala. We don't know what it is about this mouth-numbing concoction, but it is as addictive as it is painful.
We used to be able to satisfy our mala cravings with a hearty bowl of mala xiang guo. Today, many snack brands have hopped onto the mala bandwagon by producing innovative mala snacks that will undoubtedly set your senses ablaze.
For all you mala lovers out there, we have here a list of fiery mala snacks that you can try the next time you need to update your snack collection. From crispy mala fish skin to mala oden, here are 12 mala snacks in Singapore that you need to try.
The popular Hei Ren Bu Luo Mala Oden is similar to a Japanese oden and comes with a variety of chewy fishcakes. Here, the instant noodle snack replaces the usual sweet oden soup with a tongue-burning mala broth for a spicy remix.
Each cup comes with sweet potato noodles, dried vegetables and a copious amount of fishcake. All you need to do is add hot water to enjoy your mala oden.
Price: S$46.90 for 1 carton with 12 cups of Hei Ren Bu Luo Mala Oden, S$89.90 for 2 cartons with 24 cups of Hei Ren Bu Luo Mala Oden

A recent addition to the instant food scene is the Hai Chi Jia Guo Ba Fen. This instant noodle snack features sweet potato noodles and crispy rice soaked in a spicy peppercorn soup base.

It is very different from your usual instant noodle ensemble but trust us when we say that it is worth a try!
