Top Mookata Places in Singapore to Try (or Revisit!) in 2019
Few places pop into our minds when we speak of supper fares – McDonald’s has always been the textbook answer to our midnight hunger pangs. Is either that or a good ol’ greasy plate of maggie goreng. It seems like our bellies tend to crave for the most unearthly foods when they are the least available.
Fortunately for night owls like myself, mookata, the ultimate Thai-style barbeque and aromatic hot pot, is a superb supper alternative. Whether you’re in it for a late-night grub hunt or just a cheaper alternative to the conventional BBQ options, we have here a list of options around the island for this Thai speciality!

2. Siam Square Mookata
Siam Square Mookata is often regarded as the first of its kind to offer a more affordable Thai BBQ. Patrons can purchase small-plated ingredients that cost as low as S$1.80 per plate, a tasty and economical alternative if you’re just looking to have just your fill of the meal instead of the usual free-flow buffet style of eating Thai BBQ. Siam Square Mookata now has 10 outlets across Singapore, a true testament to the quality of the brand.
- Average Price: ~ $30
- Address: several outlets, including Golden Mile Tower (Basement) at 6001 Beach Road, Singapore 199589

3. Happy Mookata
Upon arrival at Golden Mile Tower, one would be instantly greeted by the waft of grilled meats and an eye-striking neon light signboard that distinguishes this establishment as the monument of grilled food in the area. At a mere S$29.90 nett, a price point that is lower than most BBQ buffet joints, customers at Happy Mookata are entitled to one of the most spectacular seafood spread one would see at any buffet outlet; ranging from the usuals to premium ingredients such as snow crab, bamboo clam and crayfish. Other options that really make this place the most bang for one’s buck is the spread of cooked food that includes nuggets, popcorn chicken that are included in the same buffet menu as well!
- Average Price: ~$30
- Address: 6001 Beach Rd, #01-55D, Golden Mile Tower, 199589

4. Cheese Story Mookata Buffet
As the name of the establishment suggests, Cheese Story Mookata Buffet edges over the rest of its competitors by including the addition of an in-house concocted cheese mixture to add on the already delectable BBQ spread. Fresh oysters are definitely not native to the traditional Mookata but hey no one’s complaining when everything is included in a single price point of S$29.90. As the saying goes, ‘all things taste good with cheese’. Alright, perhaps that’s not a real saying but you can imagine how it can be true. Choose from the diverse cuts of meat to pair with their signature cheesy concoction or with their unique satay sauce!
- Average Price: ~$30
- Address: 5001 Beach Rd, #02-01 Golden Mile Complex, Singapore 199588

5. Huay Kwang Thai Kitchen
Huay Kwang Thai Kitchen is probably the priciest option in this list but we’re definitely ending off with a bang here. If you are a night owl who frequents the upper Thomson supper stretch, then you should be no stranger to the fragrance of grilled food that perfumes the stretch of stores.
Eating at Huay Kwang Thai Kitchen is not only an aromatically stimulating sensorial experience but they’re also known as the only mookata establishment islandwide to dish up premium cuts of meats such as the publicly bestowed wagyu beef and kurobuta pork. Who would’ve thought the clash of different cultures could result in such beautiful harmonies on one’s tongue? Visit Huay Kwang Thai Kitchen to find out for yourself today!
