The best mookata in Singapore

If it’s one thing we know and love, it’s BBQ – from upscale Korean BBQ to your standard BBQ sessions at East Coast Park – you can’t say no to some chargrilled goodness! However, our favourite and definite standout has to be mookata!

For the uninitiated, mookata hails from Northern Thailand and it’s slightly different from your run-of-the-mill BBQs. The Thai rendition features a skillet and moat, allowing you to enjoy both BBQ and a steamboat. Now, ain’t that the best of both worlds? But enough talk about what mookata is, we’re here to dish out the best mookata hotspots in Singapore.

1. Tom Yum Kungfu

Tom Yum Kungfu’s take on mookata is impressively authentic (the folks there use charcoal as their source of fuel)! A standard set consists of pork, pineapple chicken chop, pork belly, scallops (seasonal), prawns, fish cake and an assorted vegetable basket ($39.90 for the regular size, $44.90 for the large size). For a little bit more, you get some squid strips, surimi crab sticks, roast, pork, pork belly cheese rolls and Thai noodles ($49.90 for the regular size, $56.90 for the large size).

Their broth is boiled from a mix of crabs, pork bones and vegetables, which lends to its sweetness. Oddly enough, what got us really hooked to this restaurant is the ambience. Tom Yum Kungfu’s mosaics, retro motifs complete with vintage-looking decor is reminiscent to that of Bangkok’s vibrant culture!

2. Cheese Story Mookata

Mmmmm, cheese. If you’re not completely sold on the idea, we’re here to completely assure you that grilled meat AND cheese is the bomb dot com. The dip found here is a mix of mozzarella and nacho cheese, which gives it that superb cheese pull similar to that of pizzas and creamy mac & cheese (can we get a yas please). The free flow of seafood (selected) and Thai ice milk tea have got us quaking too. Oh and the best bit is, prices start from as low as $29.90, a pretty good deal for the amount of food you’ll be chowing down.

5. Happy Mookata (Golden Mile)

Happy Mookata, one of our favourite haunts in Golden Mile Tower, offers a hotpot that is slightly different from the rest featured above. There are no grill holes in metal skillet and this allows the grease from the meat to flow straight down into your broth – perfect for those who go crazy for a rich broth. And it’s only priced at $25.90 for weekdays and $26.90 for weekends.

6. Siam Square Mookata

After the “mookata boom” in Singapore, this joint has seen so much success that it has expanded across the island. However, we still find ourselves going back to the main branch located at, you guessed it, Golden Mile Tower. Their food is prepared daily including all the cutting, marinating and brewing of their special soup. The highlights here are undoubtedly the price (SGD29.00), long opening hours and their special chilli sauce (a secret recipe that elevates the taste of the grilled meat). Don’t fret if you can’t take the heat though, they offer 3 different spice levels to cater to your tolerance for spice.

Address:
6001 Beach Road
Golden Mile Tower Basement
Singapore 199589

Opening Hours:
Mon – Sun:
3.00pm to 5.00am

7. 2211 Mookata

We’re not going to lie, 2211 Mookata is a little bit hard to get to, especially if you’re planning on taking public transport (it takes a little bit of navigating). However, thanks to its slightly obscure location, this means that there’s less of a crowd.

Their soup base is a little bit unique – it’s actually a spicy Tom Yum. Served with a refreshing Thai milk tea, the mookata for two goes for just $22, while the serving for four is $40.

Address:
Block 907
Jurong West St 91
Singapore 640907

Opening Hours:
Mon – Sun:
5.00pm to 3.00am
