Málà Project Midtown West

Perfect For:Big GroupsWalk-Ins

MáLà Project is known for its customizable dry pots, which have become popular enough for them to keep opening new locations. The spacious one in Midtown West doesn’t get quite as busy as the others, and it’s ideal for a last-minute group lunch or dinner. You can choose from roughly 70 ingredients—ranging from konjac noodle to tripe and quail eggs—to be mixed in a spicy mala sauce. This location also has appetizers you won’t find at the others, like a tingly spicy popcorn chicken and hot and sour rice noodle soup.
