We were invited to MooJaa for dinner last Sunday 🙂
Was so thrilled to receive the email from Shaun, because I had been wanting to try out mookata. So it was an evening well spent with good food and with the hubby haha.
I quite like the decor and layout of the restaurant. At least each table is spaced out reasonably, and I love the cushioned seats! Make BBQ-ing more comfortable haha!
Classy black interior with splash of reds 😉
Mookata means “pork skillet” in Thai, which refers to the special cooking equipment that allows diners to enjoy both BBQ and hotpot at the same time. I like that MooJaa uses charcoal underneath the special dome shaped grill pot.
To start off the BBQ dinner, we were served the cooked items first – their famous cheese balls and fish skin. Oh, and I SUPER love their sauces! Both the tangy seafood sauce and chilli sauce. The seafood sauce is sourish enough to whet your appetite, and never feeling gelat from all the BBQ food; the chilli sauce is spicy enough too!
You can also soak the fish skin into the soup later on for a more texture bite. I am avoiding fish most of the times now (pregnancy food aversion -_-), but I took some bites of the fish skin, and it’s really crispy!
Pork lard is placed at the top of the dome, which melts into some fatty goodness, adding fragrance to meat BBQ on the dome grill. The hubby was quite happy to see the pork lard because he truly believes adding pork lard to food makes the food tastier lol.
The MooJaa menu!
