Story Behind Mookata

There was a period of time when the Mookata craze hit Singapore, many of us were thrilled to try  this delicious creation but how many of us know the story behind Mookata and what exactly is the correct way of eating it?

In my video you will learn some tips on how to achieve that perfect meat you always wanted, coat some pork lard before you start your barbecue and you will be surprised with the difference. We ordered Tom Yum and vegetable-based soup individually, it is the best choice when eating Mookata because you can taste the spicy and non-spicy, both are distinctively good. Tom Yum was slightly spicy yet very appetising, the vegetable soup is infused with various spices added from the juice of the meat that flows down from the top giving an extra oomph to the flavour.

Talking about how Mookata came about, it is quite an interesting story actually. In the olden days during war time, the starving soldiers from Chiang Mai Thailand would replenish their energy by eating the meat they hunt but they had no apparatus to cook. Fortunately there was one smart soldier who suggested to use his helmet to cook and this cooking method actually works which was then widely accepted and improvised till the Mookata today. I bet you will have more ‘feel’ after understanding the concept of Mookata, Charcoal Thai is one of the places that I would recommend for an authentic eating experience like a Thai.
