    Steamboat @ Bugis

    'Ma Lat' steamboat @ Bugis

    We ordered clear herbal soup and Ma Lat soup (medium spicy).
    Upon ordering they will ask you whether you want 'small' spicy, 'medium' spicy or 'big' spicy.

    I like this clear soup. Very 'sweet' and nice.

    We ordered 'medium' spicy, as you can see, half of the Ma Lat soup is covered by Dried Cili Padi.

    Operating Hours: 11.00a.m - 5 a.m
    Price : SG$18 per head

    Drinks provided: Water chestnut drink and Lime juice (but they do sell can drinks and beer too)
    Soup base : Tomyam, Ma Lat, and Herbal clear soup

    Most of the time, you have to queue up in front of the restaurant in order to get a table, that day Chloe and I waited approximately 30 minutes. We ate from 6.30 p.m to 9.00 p.m. lol

    Now I have craving for steamboat! At 6.30am! lol

    I'll steer clear of the spicy soup though. From the look of it, not something my tummy can handle. :D

    Yo,yeah doesnt look like medium spicy. Looks like super spicy. :P
    I like clear soup always when i eat steamboat.

    pete: I don really like ma lat, I dislike oily food. I prefer Tom Yam. Ordered Ma Lat that day because this restaurant is famous of Ma Lat.

    Ben: Ya, I know tea helps to 'cleanse' oil, but they do not serve tea. I drank Lime juice. Lime juice also helps rite? If not why they put in dish washing liquid? lol

    irene: My colleagues call me "chili padi Queen". Craving for steamboat at 6.30am? Cool! Was it raining or what? I normally crave for steamboat when it is raining.

    Edward: Let's go for steamboat one day!
