Sedap Thai – Halal Certified Thai BBQ in Jalan Besar
Mookata restaurants have been gaining popularity in Singapore in recent years. In Jalan Besar Food Centre, there is a stall called “Sedap Thai” selling Thai mookata. And what’s the best thing? It’s halal-certified! Mookata – Moo means pork and kata, skillet, in Thai – refers to a dome-shaped grill with a soup trough that is placed over fire.
Okay, it is not exactly mookata, because there is no pork in their BBQ. That’s why, it should be called ayam-kata or kambing-kata or simply halal certified Thai BBQ instead. A special feature of Mookata is the use of pork lard in place of oil. Instead of using pork lard, chicken oil is used here. We ordered a platter ($20) which consists of chicken, lamb and beef, with some prawns and vegetables, enough for 2 pax.
The marinade is more pepperish and because chicken powder is added into the marinade, when the meat juices flow to the soup, it feels like I am having maggie mee soup. While it may not work too well for me, some of my friends like it. The sweet tangy chilli sauce is pretty mild, and more towards the sweet side. I hope they have a more spicy chilli sauce next time. Finally, a place where our Malay friends can enjoy Thai BBQ!
