MooJaa is not to be mistaken with the Mookata in the East, where mookata is a Thai generic term meaning pork bbq. Here at Keong Saik Road is the one and only branch – located deep inside one of the Chinatown veins.
‘When a couple get together, the male usually puts on a little happy weight, the lady in the relationship would then rub the guy’s tummy and go MooJaa (which loosely translates to…my lovely little pig)’ – there you go, another term you could pick up for your other half.
The mookata assembly takes place inside a recessed sink on the dining table, the sink is also equipped with exhaust holes on the wall around it piping out the more intense smoke.
Very nice to dip the fried fish skin into!
I missed a snapshot of the cheese balls, these little molten cheese filled balls were tasty.
Due to longer cooking time, they will be served cooked alongside with the meat platter for munching on.
We liked that the meat slices came prepared without any heavy marinade, the only flavouring was the lardons grilled throughout the course.
Sip the soup at the very end of of the grilling, the meat infused broth was finally complete with the needed flavours.
Overall, a fairly quality mookata set indeed.
Good news – if you are feeling peckish past 10pm, this is one of the only few places serving mookata throughout the night until 6am!
There are also Thai cooked dishes here – the usual suspects are Som Tum (green papaya salad), Green Curry, Pad Thai, Pineapple Fried Rice, you name it.
This shop is the obvious choice when it comes to late night meaty supper in town.
