ChokChai Mookata – A Better Experience [MEDIA INVITE]

ChokChai Mookata

Mookata, the renowned combination of BBQ and shabu-shabu originated from Thailand which has gathered decent followers in Singapore. A google search to check for the mookata places in Singapore, the list can be considered very extensive.

ChokChai Mookata Shop

I had my virgin experience with mookata a few years back and I have been avoiding it since. The reason being it is slow to cook and I “hate” it when you bbq the meat / sausage or balls, the food just take a tumble into the shabu-shabu section.

First thing that I noticed in ChokChai Mookata is the bbq pan. There is a mini gate surrounding the bbq section, so the bbq food will not roll to the soup. Wohoo!! Something to look forward.

Oscar's - Supercharged Sunday Brunch [MEDIA INVITE]



Get ready for the Supercharged your Sunday to power your week ahead. The ever popular Conrad Centennial Singapore Sunday Brunch launch a new look Sunday Brunch concept. Oscar's Supercharged Sunday Brunch available from April 2016.

Seafood Bar

From the famous Seafood Bar, you can look forward to oysters from France, Ireland and Canada freshly shuck together; Boston lobsters and other crustaceans as well as fresh sashimi. I enjoyed the fresh lobster, they are solid and brainy. The same as can be said about the oyster, where the velvety texture just glide down in your throat.

Sashimi

The carving station offered US prime rib, whole suckling pig in three different style rotated weekly, and the famous roast “London Duck”. The prime rib is just sublime, the herbs seasoning infused well into the tender, succulent medium rare cooked meat. During the tasting, the suckling pig is roasted Mauritian style. It has a crisp paper thin skin, tender and succulent meat, similar to the Spanish version of suckling pig. For those who enjoy goose meat, I find the Irish farm duck has a similar texture, except it does not have the gaminess like the Asian duck. I personally still like the Asian farmed duck.
