Thai mookata is all the rage in Singapore, and it comes as no surprise given that mookata (actually a corruption of the Thai ‘mu kratha’) combines two of the city-state’s other favourite cuisines – Korean barbecue and Chinese hotpot. And if you’re looking for the perfect restaurant to indulge in this culinary match made in heaven, you’d do well to pay a visit to one of the many Bangkok Street Mookata outlets scattered across town. Here in Jalan Besar along Foch Road, close to both Lavender and Farrer Park MRT stations, diners can indulge in all the grillin’ and steamboatin’ goodness that Thai mookata represents.
Rock up to Bangkok Street Mookata and you’re instantly hit by the aroma of the classic Thai hybrid of tabletop barbecue and steamboat moat. The delicious juices from the grilling meats, seafood and vegetables sluice down into your choice of soup, making the best broth possible, and the for is proving very popular in Singapore, with many a mookata restaurant popping up around the city – and there’s no doubt that Bangkok Street Mookata’s Jalan Besar outpost is one of the more popular restaurants offering mookata. With an ideal location along Foch Road, equidistant between Lavender and Farrer Park stations, this is one Thai mookata restaurant you should book.
The menu at Bangkok Street Mookata’s Jalan Besar outlet is either a la carte, using a tally chart-type ordering system not dissimilar to a Chinese dim sum session, or a set platter for two or four people. Go for marinated chicken, beef, pork belly and pork collar if you’re feeling carnivorous, or take advantage of Singapore’s plethora of seafood and fresh vegetables. Add noodles, mushrooms, even hotdogs – mookata is a pick-and-mix style of dining that encourages large groups to get together and create their dream soup. There are many Bangkok Street Mookata restaurants in Singapore, but if you’re in the vicinity of Farrer Park, Kallang and Lavender, or Little India and Rochor, make your way to Foch Road and get your mookata on in superlative style.
Always my to-go place for mookata. Afforadable food and very nicely marinated meat. Jalan Besar outlet is not too crowded and great for supper as they open until 4.00am. :)
Service was great. Staff keep looking out to customer needs. Cleared the table fast without us calling them. Great service. This is our 2nd visit. Will be going there to eat again.
Excellent service and the food there was really good! Even though you might leave the place smelling like BBQ, what matters is really getting your tummy filled with good food, good mood and a happy night :)
Location is easy to find. When we reached was greeted by friendly and cheerful staffs. Food was great! Service was awesome! Strongly recommended for those who love BBQ.
Food was great! fresh and delicious. portions were also reasonable such that we are able to try out different types of meats and seafood and not be overwhelmed with one.
Reasonably priced mookata. The meat was nicely marinated and fresh. Restaurant was quiet and nice and staff were friendly. Will likely go back if I have craving for mookata again.
Good food though ventilation of the restaurant could be improved. It was too noisy to eat outside as it is next to a karaoke bar.
Nice place, pretty quiet. Quality was good, fresh and varied enough especially if you like seafood. Only gripe is that it can get pretty warm, and there's not enough ventilation inside.
Food were fresh and the place was not so crowded. However, servings on seafood were smaller but you can order unlimited times. Will come back again.
The food was delicious. Service was great. Will head there again to satisfy the mookata cravings
