Bangkok Garden BBQ- Mookata @ Automall, Georgetown, Penang.
For a no-frills Thai Mookata experience, look no further than this curious space at Automall, Karpal Singh Drive. Affordably priced at Rm 19.90 for a basic set (serves 2), budget watchers can now enjoy delicious Thai Steamboat at unbeatable price, well-complemented with sea breeze. The simple set includes some basic meat balls, greens and meat but those with a deeper pocket can always top up extra few dollars for the additional spread. Bangkok Garden BBQ is not air-conditioned and instead, it relies on the sea breeze so the best time to visit would probably in the evening. The serving portion is not that great but it would be perfectly fine to be served as supper in lieu of a proper meal. Bangkok Garden BBQ can be found right next to Sae Ma Eul Korean BBQ Restaurant.
Before the pan was heated, rub some Pork Lards over it... the broth was delicious- clean, non-greasy and reasonably seasoned with mellow vege-sweetness but we had a gripe... we did not get to choose what type of broth we would prefer... as Bangkok Garden only offers one type of broth- clear soup. The baskets of meat and vegetables were pretty straight-forward but the real draw was the heat-inducing home-made Chili dips. None of them disappoint but since the restaurant is not air-conditioned, be prepared to walk away in sweats! If you feel unsatisfied with the basic set, you can always top up for the extra selection of meat and greens.
