Opening in July 2014, Bangkok Street Mookata has since grown to 8 outlets across Singapore. The appeal of Bangkok Street Mookata includes their convenient heartland location, decent quality of seafood, meat, and vegetables, and most importantly, their affordable, value for money prices (they are likely the cheapest mookata around). All in all, a winning mu kratha formula for this Thai hot pot / steamboat & grill concept.

Ambience at Bangkok Street Mookata is no-frills, largely because their outlets are all located in heartland coffee shops. Think bright fluorescent lights and functional modern metal and plastic furniture. Some outlets have more spacious seating than others - I'd prefer to go for those. Atmosphere is typical heartland; bustling and noisy, but at least the open air concept allows for good ventilation, and prevents grilling odour from lingering.

Service at Bangkok Street Mookata is similarly no-frills. There is simply an order chit, with no pictures, from which you indicate the quantity of each ingredient you want. Orders are fulfilled fast - staff are brusque, loud, and work quickly. They setup the mookata grill fairly fast, and if your gas canister runs out, they'll also replace it quickly. Cleaning up is usually performed by their staff or the coffee shop cleaners; either way, it's done efficiently.

Food at Bangkok Street Mookata is all about Thai style hot pot / steamboat & grill - the signature mu kratha / mookata. Choose from a range of 45 different ingredients to self-grill / steam at your table. Generally, ingredients are fresh and tasty, though there have been some misses on occasion. Portions are ala-carte, with each order sized for 2 people. Prices are the most affordable and value for money of any mookata, budget about SGD $9 per person for a meal here.

Every table is served these refillable condiments. Pork Lard is used to grease the mookata grill for cooking. The Thai Chili Sweet has a bright, pronounced sweet savoury salty flavour, but too much of this will leave you thirsty. Loved the Thai Chili Spicy, which has a sharp sour spicy kick.

There is a good range of vegetables to go with your meal. Most should be steamed in the soup / broth, which lends a vegetal earthy herbal sweet flavour, enhancing the base soup / broth. Vegetables I've tried include the Xiao Bai Cai / Baby Bok Choy (SGD $1.50), the Spinach (SGD $1.50), the Golden Mushroom (SGD $1.80), the Oyster Mushroom (SGD $1.80), and the Corn (SGD $1.50).

There is a decent range of cuts of meat to go with your meal. Of these, the pork and chicken are the freshest, and usually safe choices, while the beef was a miss for me. These should be grilled, and contribute good meaty savoury salty sweet smoky flavour. Meats I've tried include the Marinated Premium Beef Shank (SGD $2.90), the Marinated Pork Collar (SGD $1.90), the Marinated Pork Belly (SGD $1.90), the Garlic Pork Collar (SGD $2.20), the Marinated Chicken Thigh (SGD $1.90), and the Garlic Chicken Thigh (SGD $2.20).

The seafood here is mostly fresh, although some are clearly frozen. For the price though, I can't really complain. These are better grilled, giving it a smoky savoury sweet flavour, though steaming works if you want cleaner sweet savoury flavours. Seafood I've tried include the Grouper Fish Slice (SGD $2.90), and the Squid (SGD $2.40).

There is good variety of side dishes to go with your meal, rounding it off. These can either be steamed or grilled, and mostly complement the already savoury sweet flavours present. Sides I've tried include the Thai Fish Cake (SGD $1.90), the Hot Dog Sausage Chicken (SGD $1.90), the Crab Stick (SGD $1.90), the Quail Egg (SGD $1.90), the Cheese Tofu (SGD $2.40), and the Tang Hoon / Glass Vermicelli Noodles (SGD $0.80).
