In 2020, four young NTU students with a shared passion for Mala came together to co-found "A Hot Hideout." Their mission was crystal clear: to transform Mala into an unforgettable experience rather than a mere meal. They envisioned a welcoming space where people could come together and bond over their mutual adoration for this beloved dish. Devoting countless hours to research and development, their unwavering determination ultimately resulted in the creation of the delectable Mala dish now served in their three outlets today.
