There are many cuisines that I really enjoy. One of them is Thai cuisine. Mookata being one of my favourite as I enjoy cooking my own food. Haha. But the major drawback for Mookata aka Thai Barbecue is always the heat. I hate it when I perspire while eating! Hence I always welcome the idea of having Mookata in the air conditioned area. My dream finally came true when Talay Kata opened its door at Orchard Central.
The beauty of Talay Kata is it is buffet style. You can expect a wide selection of meat and seafood. Be sure to try the pork jowl! I am not a huge fan of pork. But after the pork jowl was cooked on the sizzling mookata plate, it was so tender and juicy! Seriously can’t resist it. I tried cooking it with some of the black chilli sauce too. So delicious can!
Vegetables lovers are not forgotten here. There is a good variety of vegetables and mushroom.
If you like thai sausages, fishball and vermicelli, they are on the buffet line too.
Besides the thai green chilli sauce, there are peanut sauce, black chilli sauce and even sweet chilli sauce. Yes yes, condiments such as chopped garlic, lime and bird eye chili are available too. There is also a counter for you to make your own som tam (papaya salad).
But it takes some time to cook the raw food, right? So what if you are very hungry? Not to worry, there are some cooked food available too. To my surprise, the green curry was very decent. Definitely one of the item that you should look out for. I heard several of my dining partners raving about it.
What is life without dessert, right? There are several choices of ice cream flavours to suit your taste. If not, you can always have some DIY shaved ice (aka ice kacang).
We went for the dinner and weekday buffet dinner is $28.80++ which I think it is reasonable if you are looking for a variety. Not to forget that there are 4 soup bases for you to choose from – SALTED EGG YOLK soup, Chicken soup, Tom Yum soup and Bonito soup.
The 2600sqft outlet can accommodate up to 160 pax. So if you are looking for a place to gather with familiy or friends without the worry of the variety of food available, I think this might be the place.
