Food: Moo Kata Steamboat & BBQ House @ Kuchai Lama food court

Recently, I was invited for a review at MOO KATA STEAMBOAT & BBQ HOUSE located in the Kuchai Lama food court itself. My first thought of having steamboat and BBQ concept dining in a food court setting was rather odd. However, weather that night was chilly and breezy best suited for steamboats and BBQ!

Here's the pricing for your convenince :) 
            Children/kids   - FREE! ( below < 110cm)
                                     - RM23 ( Above > 110cm)
Adult - RM38    
Simple and spacious setting of the restaurant

Mr Chua and his sister in-law, Angel decided to start this business after a trip up to Bangkok. According to Mr Chua, 'Moo Kata' means 'steamboat concept' in Thai. Here at Moo Kata, they served more that 120 different types of food ranging from fresh seafoods, tender and juicy meats,  there are 3 ways for you to cook your food. 

 The Grill
This grill uses charcoal to cook your meat. There are advantages of cooking your meats with charcoals. The dry, white- hot heat of charcoal sears the meat quickly, thus creating a crusty, caramelized exterior and it also gives you a smoky flavour to your meat.

 The Sizzling hot plate.
Be careful not to put too much oil! Otherwise, it might just splat on you. 

The Hot pot or Steamboat
To those who wants a healthier and lesser oil to their meal, this would be the one for you!

The wide varieties of meats!
If you're a meat person, this is just the corner for you! Just grab any meats of your desire and cook them to your liking :) 

Thin - sliced pork
Specially sliced pork where you can cook and eat your meat similar to Suki-Ya

 Choices of various types of seafoods and fish balls

Various choices of leafy greens
It's always good to add in some greens into your steamboat for a change and not only meats. It's healthy afterall :)
Mixture of different types of meats of the sizzling hot plate
Sizzling hot place cooking my juicy and tender lamb meat for the night! It was awesome! You should try their Black pepper Lamb if you are here! ( MUST TRY!)

 The Pork Bone soup
20KG of pork bone is used to produce 170 litres of this amazingly rich and tasty soup that goes well for your steamboat!

Homemade Tom Yam paste
If you want to add some "twist" into your steamboat soup. This homemade tomyam paste will surely do the trick! I personally do love this tom yam paste added into my hot pot! Beware, not to add in too much as it's a little spicy :)

Moo Kata sauce (My personal favourite!)
I personally likes to eat spicy a lot and this Moo Kata sauce has won my heart that night! It goes well with every meats and seafoods.

 Seafood sauce 
This seafood sauce has a sour taste accompanied with some garlic

 Thai sauce
If you like your sauce to have a strong ginger flower (bunga kantan) taste to it, this it just the right one for you!

Sweet sauce
Consist of sour, sweet, with some taste of a fermented beancurd

Last but not least, the desserts! 

Various ranges of Ice-creams
(Strawberry, cendol, chocolate, cappuccino, yam & rainbow)

Durian Float (MUST TRY!)
A homemade fillipino delicacy who is made from pure D24 durian flesh which can only be found here at Moo Kata! To those durian lovers out there, this might just be the perfect dessert you're looking for after such a heavy meal.

Event: First anniversary of Palsaik Korean BBQ Restaurant @ Scott Garden

'Palsaik' means 8 colours/flavours
'Samgyupsal' means thick, fatty slices of pork belly meat  

On the 5th of February 2015 , it was a memorable date for Palsaik Korean BBQ Restaurant Malaysia as they celebrated their first anniversary at their second branch in Scott Garden. I was fortunate enough to be invited as part of their guess together with other media & bloggers that night to try out their famous 8 different coloured/flavoured pork belly.

 Private and spacious long tables for you and your family and friends for gathering and celebrations!

Next, allow me to take you through what happened that night! Something unexpectedly happens too! 

Chils cider 
( A refreshing Korean soda drink which goes well with the heaty bbq meat. *Taste like 7-Up to me*)

Special non-stick alloy plates
(This special alloy will allow meats to be cooked in a super short time! If you dine here, if your meats starts to stick onto your plate, just inform the staffs there and they will change a new one for you! If you notice, this plate is actually slanted to one side towards the opening at the far end (not too clear in this picture). The reason for this is to minimize the oil content in your BBQ meats for a healthier meal!)

We were served with their Premium set ( RM 142 for 3-4 pax). Here are the foods for the night!

( Salad with special dressings which consist of soy sauce, vinegar, lemon juice, a small amount of alcohol, and a taste of wasabi!)

 Side dishes
( Some sides which goes well with the BBQ meats. As you can see, Korean foods usually have lots of green leafy vegetables. A good choice for those who wants to eat healthy!)

Spicy Seafood soup
( Spicy korean bean paste soup with various choice of fresh seafoods such as crabs, prawns, clams, muscles, and squid. Give the soup approximately 5-10 mins of waiting time for it to boil upon reaching your table, this will get the best of taste out of this pot of goodness!)

8 flavoured pork belly
( The MAIN dish of the night which is marinated in 8 different types of marinate/sauce. It ranges from ginseng, wine, pine needles, garlic, herb, curry, soy bean & hot pepper. My personal favourites is the pine needles sauce as it has a very strong aroma and it goes very well with the pork belly) "Belum cuba belum tau, Sudah cuba pasti mau lagi!"

Thick & juicy meats on the grill ready to be eaten!

Premium Kimchi
(These premium kimchi had been fermented for over 1 year under constant low temperature! It does taste differently (more sour) compared to the normal kimchi that we find in the supermarket. However, try grilling them, it taste way different compared to eating it just like that!)

Grilled Deodeok
( Deodeok is the roots of the 'mountain herbs' which only the Kings could consume this in the past. They serve this here too!)

We were also served with cheese stir fried rice after our meal. ( This does not comes together in the premium set).

Cheese stir-fried rice
( It consist of Stir fried rice, seaweed, chopped sesame leaves, fried fish egg, & not forgetting the generous amount of cheese on it! If you realise, this dish was done NOT on the grilling plate which was used to cook the meat earlier on. However, it was cooked using the pot of the spicy seafood soup earlier on. This is also a way of encouraging healthy eating! Less Oil!)

To end the night, they also had a session of lucky draw that night!
