Mala Xiang Guo (SGD $9) @ Ma La Xiang Guo Stall, Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre.

.
Rarely have the opportunity to eat this, so I grabbed the chance during a recent visit.
.
What I like about this stall is their bright and clear display, and the hygenic manner of serving - the gloved stall assistant will pick out the items from the refrigerated display.
.
Prices are also clearly stated - SGD $1 for vegetables / others, $2 for chicken / pork, and $3 for seafood / beef / lamb.
.
I asked for less salt, and it came out fine, still tasty enough.
.
However, the medium heat wasn't as spicy as I'd hoped, as the fiery burn is rather short. Will get the hotter version next time.

Signature Cha Thai Toast (SGD $8) @ Cha Thai.

.
A platter of golden brown toast and charcoal toast, alongside a Thai milk tea dip and a pandan dip.
.
The toast is lovely and crisp, though I don't detect much difference between the regular version and the charcoal version.
.
But the luscious, creamy dipping sauces are delicious; the pandan / screwpine leaf dip is floral earthy sweet, while the Thai milk tea is nicely balanced, just like their beverage.
