Thailand is one travel destination most Singaporeans frequent. With the good SGD-THB exchange rate, everything seems more affordable there in the land of smiles. We are undeniably fond of their native cuisines. Tomyam goong, padi thai, green thai curry – they all certainly hit the spot, as we share a common love for all things spicy. Often, we find ourselves hankering after those very flavors once we are back home.

Solution? Streetdirectory #makanmonday’s list of Thai Food to Try will satisfy your thai food cravings without you having to fly over to Bangkok!

Mookata Thai BBQ
Grill portions of seasoned meats and fresh seafood in a slick of lard. The charcoal used is a special type of white charcoal, termed 'binchō-tan' - noteworthy for its ability to cook ingredients thoroughly to a beautiful sear. Mookata’s chili sauce comes in three different levels of spiciness, all of which tastes tantalizingly good.
