When you see Mookata stalls popping up at even heartland coffee shops, you know it is a trend that has hit the hearts (or stomachs, rather) of local peeps.
My first time with Thai Steamboat & Mookata was aptly in Singapore’s Little Thailand – Golden Mile. The ground floor is packed with Thai food stalls, money changers and transport service companies (buses to Malaysia & Thailand) and Thai clubs tucked away in nooks and corners. A little gritty, a little grimy, with character.
Up to the 2nd floor are clothes stalls and larger food eateries / restaurants, and round the corner is the bright and spacious Suki Thai serving steamboat and mookata.
I was very excited to see the colorful display of the All In One Combo veg/meat/seafood Set menu ($40). You can also order them separately (Seafood combo $29.50, meat combo at $24.50 & veg at $14.50). But I think the All In One Combo Set is more worth it. Portion can be for 2-3 persons.
For the steamboat, we had 2 stocks – chicken & tom yam. The tom yam stock was surprisingly light, which I thought was good so that as the dinner progresses, you don’t end up with overly salty soup. The seafood and meat was fresh, no fishy / mushy stuff. The vegetables are also fresh, delivered directly from a truck that drives down from Thailand regularly.
Suki Thai also carry many delightful side dishes starting from $2.50. The deep fried enoki mushrooms was very pretty looking dish.. There was also jade noodles (very qew) and cheese sausages (always a crowd favorite), and the very authentic (spicy!) Mango salad.
