A Hot Hideout is opening at KINEX this November
If you’re a fan of A Hot Hideout and you live in the East, here’s some exciting news! You no longer have to travel to Pulau NTU or Sembawang just for their mala collagen soup. A Hot Hideout is set to open its third outlet in KINEX this November. You can easily find them on the first floor, close to Starbucks.
For those unfamiliar with A Hot Hideout, what makes them unique is that they deep-fry their ingredients such as luncheon meat, potato, lotus root, and fried fish. Their bestseller is undoubtedly the Mala Stir Fry, but they also offer various soup bases. You can choose from three different soup bases: Tomato Collagen Soup, Collagen Soup, and their signature Mala Collagen Soup.
A must-try here is their famous scrambled egg that’s creamy and fluffy.

Many highly recommend pairing it with the mala collagen soup instead of the dry mala!

Other essential ingredients to add to your order are their deep-fried lotus root and potato chips which are said to be incredibly crispy. You can request to have them served in a separate bowl to ensure they maintain their crunch!
Normally, I would avoid ordering fish at a mala stall due to the higher price, but here, you have to get it! The fried fish absorbs the mala soup wonderfully, even while retaining its crispness.
The price of mala is calculated based on its weight ($2.38 per 100g) rather than the type of ingredients, so you can pick whatever you want, regardless of how premium the ingredient is.
To relieve the spice, you can consider ordering their Original Thai Milk Tea ($3) or Green Milk Tea ($3) as well.
