Mookata is a Thai-style barbecue that combines elements of Korean BBQ and Chinese Hotpot. Basically, the meat is grilled on a dome in the centre, while other ingredients are cooked steamboat-style around the dome. Raevian and I simply love indulging in Mookata, and below we have compiled 6 of our favourite Mookata restaurants in the Western part of Singapore (arranged in alphabetical order). Enjoy!
1. 1345 Mookata @ Bukit Batok
1345 Mookata is located inside a coffeeshop at the ground level of The Elitist (a commercial building in a small industrial estate in Bukit Batok). We enjoy coming here because of its relatively ulu location, which means the area is quite peaceful and quiet. More importantly, we have visited this joint numerous times and the ingredients are always extremely fresh and delicious. We usually go for the Set Platter ($32.80) which is just nice for two persons. You can order Ala Carte too. 1345 Mookata has never disappointed us, and I’m sure you will definitely enjoy the food here too!

2. 2211 Mookata @ Jurong West
If you are looking for a Mookata joint with friendly staff and a great vibe, 2211 Mookata is the place for you! The stall is located towards the far West end of Jurong, so it is relatively difficult to get there by public transport. On the other hand, this means that the place is usually not too crowded. We were impressed by the great service; the staff were all friendly and prompt. 2211 Mookata also serves delicious Thai Milk Tea which goes nicely with the feisty Tom Yam soup base and fresh ingredients. The platter for 2 goes for just $22, while the platter for 4 is $40.

3. Bangkok Street Mookata @ Jurong West
This was one of the first Mookatas we tried and till today Bangkok Street Mookata is still one of our favourite in Singapore! This is because the ingredients are extremely fresh and delicious. The price is very affordable too (Platter for 2 = $22, Platter for 4 = $39). We loved Bangkok Street Mookata’s homemade chilli sauce, which tasted great with the barbecued items. This joint is perfect for a quick supper fix if you are living in the area.

4. Dee Mak Mookata @ Jurong West
We wouldn’t have discovered Dee Mak Mookata if not for a tipoff from a friend living in the area. This Mookata joint is located in the heartlands of Jurong West. We suggest going at night so you can dine outdoors in the cool night air, with a glass of beer in hand. The platter for 2 costs just $22. We loved the savoury Tom Yam soup base, along with the savoury and delicious ingredients served in large portions. In fact, Dee Mak is perhaps our favourite Mookata restaurant in the West!

5. Siam Square Mookata @ Boon Lay
Siam Square has expanded their business rapidly in Singapore, with branches now at Jurong East, Boon Lay, Woodlands, Tampines, Havelock, and other locations. We dined at the Boon Lay Shopping Centre branch, which is a no-frills joint with a vintage-Singapore allure. Near the stall you can find old-school fruit stalls, traditional provision shops, clothing stalls, and even a record store that sells cassette tapes. The shopping centre is itself surrounded by aged HDB buildings. Other than the standard Mookata items, Siam Square Mookata also offers pricier items like scallops and abalone. Take a trip back to 1980s Singapore by dining at Siam Square Mookata Boon Lay!

6. Soi 33 Mookata @ Holland Village
Soi 33 Mookata is located at the hip enclave of Holland Village, inside Holland Village Food Court. We like coming here to eat because we can revel in the bustling atmosphere of Holland V while indulging in sinful Mookata. The set for two persons is just $20, which is one of the cheapest in Singapore! For soup base, choose the feisty Tom Yam base which goes perfectly with Soi 33 Mookata’s fresh ingredients.
