If you ever notice the F&B trends, Mookata was well-received among the locals few years back and it has been on-going till now. There are many places offering Mookata which is a combination of a Korean barbecue and a Chinese hot pot. Mookata is well-known in Thailand and Malaysia and locals enjoy it with a group of friends.
I was at Chok Chai Mookata few days ago with fellow blogger friends. Chok Chai Mookata is situated within 10-15 minutes walk from Ang Mo Kio MRT station. It is located in a coffeeshop of Ang Mo Kio estate where the target customers are mostly heart landers.
So with S$28.00 for 2-3 pax and S$45.00 for 4-5 pax pricing, customers can get variety of seafoods, meats and vegetables.
Here are some of ingredients that you will get for the pricing:-
1. Thai Black pepper Chicken
2. Thai Garlic Lean Meat
5. Scallop in shell
6. Pork Ball
7. Crab Stick
8. Fish Ball
10. Vegetables (Cabbage & Xiao Bai Cai)
11. Golden Mushroom
13. Slices of carrots
14. Tang hoon
Alternatively, you can order ala-carte which is priced at S$3.00 for thai black pepper chicken, lean meat and pork belly. Beef slices are available with separate pricing.
I enjoyed BBQing the honey pork belly which was well marinated and couldn’t stop having it. Some prefer the thai black pepper chicken which I find the peppery taste was too strong. There is also thai garlic lean meat which was well-received that day.
The soup broth was tasty and flavourful by its own. This is because it was prepared with pork bone, white radish, pandan leaves and their ‘secret’ ingredients. Thus, this explains why it was so tasty. The broth also tasted sweeter after putting in scallops and more ingredients into it.
I would say it is an affordable meal at neighbouring areas. And the best part is that it is conveniently located near HDB and locals can opt for mookata without travelling to central to enjoy one.
And special mention on their home made chilli. It was spicy and challenging. For me, I couldn’t take the level of spiciness but some enjoyed it as a dipping sauce for the ingredients. They were addicted with the aromatic and flavourful. There are two types; green sourish and red spicy sauces. (I forget to take picture of the chilli)
Lastly, everyone was worried about the smoky smell on the clothes after steamboat or BBQ. Thankfully it was not strong. It is an open coffeeshop area so lesser smoke would get to us. So no worries on this!
