They are generous with the seafood servings, large mussels, fat oysters, XL prawns, thick cut salmon and big chunks of fish for that price range.
The owner of Ja Kin Mukata prides themselves with using fresh XL prawns from the market instead of frozen one for their mookata. They have received favourable feedback from their regulars after using fresh market prawns compared to the frozen ones. We notice that the prawns are larger than normal ones and the owner comment that they bought XL prawns instead of the regular size. Check out the size of the prawns for scale in comparison to the grill of the mookata plate. These prawns are large enough for you to enjoy some decent head butter and are best grilled with their add-on sides of SCS butter cube.
The pandan chicken has a familiar flavour like those chicken ketupat starters in Thai cooked food with a subtle sweet vanilla flavour and more tender. The pad Thai chicken also has a sweet undertone with a caramelised crust after grilling. The mala pork is spicy with a roasted smoky flavour released by the speckles of red dried chilli pepper during grilling. The pineapple chicken has a refreshing sweet tangy to it like toppings in a Hawaiian Pizza. For non-adventurous mookata eater, you probably will love their traditional Thai mookata marinated meat flavours such as garlic pork, black pepper beef, sesame pork and more.
They have 3 signature dips Thai Garlic chilli, Thai seafood chilli and Thai sukiyaki sauce. Enjoy some sweet, spicy and garlicky, sour dips to go with your grilled meats and seafoods.
