Mookata Bugis is testament to how popular Thai barbecue is in Singapore, owing to the fact it’s one of three Mookata restaurants scattered across the city. Mookata’s indulgent array of meats, marinades and veggies is what makes it so popular, all there for you to combine pretty much any way you want for the perfect Thai barbecue experience. The meat will be done just right and, of course, all the juices running down off the grill create that wonderful soupy broth. There’s really nothing better. You’ll find Mookata Bugis inside Bugis Junction Mall on Victoria Street, right next to Bugis MRT, where it’s well worth heading armed with an advanced reservation.
The Mookata Bugis Thai barbecue experience is unlike any other in Singapore (unless you head to the Katong or Yishun Mookata restaurants, that is) and it starts when the first cube of lard starts to bubble on the grilling surface. From there, only the finest meat and seafood is used where it’s barbecued over speciality charcoal that ensures maximum flavour without any nasty charring. The Mookata Bugis offers rather a lot of choice so, if it’s meat you’re in for, chicken thighs are a good place to start along with pork collar or, if you’re feeling a little more fancy, some black Angus beef.
The beauty of Thai barbecue here in Victoria Street’s Bugis Junction Mall is that you can can mix anything and everything just how you like it. So, if you’re feeling fishy, barbecue some squid or some flower clams along with a few options from the surimi section of the menu. Tip: the Mookata fish dumplings are a treat. Then you’re of course going to need some greens so get involved with everything from seaweed to golden mushrooms and Chinese cabbage. Sound good? Mookata Bugis is worth a visit no matter where you’re based in Singapore.
Overall experience was good. Strong blast of air cond makes it comfortable even in front of the mookata pot. However, the ventilator seems like not functioning well and the meat were slightly salty. We used one-for-one voucher for this visit. So the price after dividing is fine.
Food too salty, and the meats are too thick, should provide thinner slices to let consumers cook faster. The soup base is sweet instead of salty...? Totally different from other mookata i went before. Will not really consider going back again, for now... as a bit disappointed....
Love mookata and this is in my TOP 5 list. Will recommend to friends
Overall food and service was good. But food variety is little.
