📍Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo @ YewTee Point

On a Monday night, I visited Singapore’s Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo at YewTee Point, which is located 1 minute walk away from Yew Tee MRT Station Exit A.

Upon my arrival at Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo, I noticed that akin to YewTee Point’s Penang Savour which I had visited just a week ago, Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo also had an exiguous capacity for dine-in customers - which is beginning to emerge as a trend for the eateries I visit in YewTee Point. The small eatery also felt overshadowed by the comparatively gargantuan 云吞仔 to its left and Long John Silver’s across it, which could perhaps cause non-regular visitors of YewTee Point to overlook Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo.

After entering the eatery, I was pleasantly surprised by their means of displaying the ingredients, which was through the use of multiple refrigerated sliding display cabinets and upright sliding door display chillers. I thought that this was a huge boon for such eatery, particularly for Lok Lok and Mala stores, as it is an additional benefit on the area of hygiene in comparison to open-air display.

On top of that, I also thought that the crockery the eatery used was quite exquisite - particularly the large Chinese bowl, as it made me feel that there was a hint of China culture being brought into the dish alongside the inscriptions on the bowl and the pictures of the face-changing mask commonly used in Sichuan opera.

For that, I give Singapore’s Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo a 8/10 for ambience.

I ordered, of varying quantities, (1) Little Spicy, (2) Glass Noodle, (3) Maggie Noodle, (4) Vegetable Noodle, (5) Enoki Mushroom, (6) Lotus Root, (7) Yuba, (8) Pork Belly, (9) Chicken, (10) Lobster Ball, (11) Cheese Tofu, (12) Taiwanese Sausage, and (13) Chinese Sausage.

At a total cost of S$37.80 (2 pax), Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo fell onto the pricier spectrum of the Mala Price Scale. However, for each extra dollar that you are paying here, the improvement in quality and flavour that you are receiving is exponential. The meat that you pick out from the fridge are all individually vacuum packed to preserve the hygiene and freshness - which really comes through as you bite into the meat. The infusion of the Mala spice also gives that extra fragrant, spicy kick that makes you want to go back for more. For foodies who can’t take spice very well, Little Spicy is the way to go.

The eatery service was on point as well, with tissue papers standing by at the counter for dine-in customers who were sneezing through the Mala spice.
For that, I give Singapore’s Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo a 8/10 for flavour and 8/10 for service.

Overall, Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo at YewTee Point scored a 24/30 after combining the scores for Ambience, Flavour and Service. To quickly conclude, if you are looking for a quality Mala store selling authentic flavours and are not mindful of paying extra for it, Wan Xing Mala Xiang Guo is the place to visit.

On Thursday night, I visited Singapore’s Penang Savour at YewTee Point, which is located 1 minute walk away from Yew Tee MRT Station Exit A.

Upon my arrival at Penang Savour, I noticed that the size of the eatery was really small, with not many seats available for dining-in customers, especially during peak hours. As a result, we had to wait close to 15 minutes before a seat was available for us. Nevertheless, despite the small size of the eatery, I do see efforts placed into utilising the spaces they have to design their interiors to fit the theme of the eatery - such as the blue door at the storefront, the faux greeneries hanging near the ceiling, and the choice of wallpaper. However, what really impressed me was Penang Savour’s service, where the staff who was in-charge of queue management handed out menus to all the dining-in customers who were queuing up for a seat before the customers even headed into the eatery. The staff also allowed the customers to place an order with her while queuing up for a seat. I thought this was a pleasant surprise as it kept us - the customers in line, occupied while waiting for a seat. It also allowed the kitchen to prepare our food first in anticipation that we will be heading into the eatery for a meal soon - which saves us waiting time in the eatery after queuing up for so long. As a matter of fact, approximately 4 minute after we entered the eatery, most of our food had arrived - piping hot.

For that, I give Singapore’s Penang Savour a 7/10 for ambience and 10/10 for service.

I ordered (1) Crispy Noodle with Egg Gravy, (2) Hot Chinese Tea, and (3) Penang Chendol.

If you are simply craving for a well-executed traditional crispy noodle - with no additional gimmicks to the dish whatsoever, at just S$5.50, Penang Savour is the place to go to. The combination of the crunchy crispy noodle together with the traditional egg gravy is simply a match made in heaven. What's even better is that Penang Savour was extremely generous with their portion size, which makes the dish such a value for money. The S$1.20 Hot Chinese Tea also acts as a good palate cleanser.

On the negative side, I really didn’t like their S$2.80 Penang Chendol. It tasted extremely flat and bland as I couldn’t get the fragrant, sweetness, and taste from both the coconut milk and the gula melaka at all. I was also disappointed to not find any attap chee within the desert.

For that, I give Singapore’s Penang Savour a 7/10 for flavour.

Overall, Penang Savour at YewTee Point scored a 24/30 after combining the scores for Ambience, Flavor, and Service. To quickly conclude, if you are looking for a well-executed basic traditional noodle dish such as crispy noodle or ee mian that has a generous portion size, this is for sure a place to consider visiting. But I most definitely would not go out of the way for it as you can likely find a similar tasting dish in most better zi char stores in Singapore.
