Meeting up with friends for a Monday dinner around the Raffles Place area, we decided to give Kin Tub Thai Mookata a try. First and foremost, the view from our table was spectacular. I made a reservation via WhatsApp, requesting outdoor seating, which they kindly accommodated. We were seated right at the river's edge, offering us a great view of the Singapore River and Marina Bay Sands.

We ordered the Premium Beef and Pork set, which, after GST and service charge, came to a little over $150. The portions were generous and sufficient for three people, with three varieties of beef and pork cuts, all marinated and seasoned very well. The set also included a basket of vegetables, glass noodles, and an egg.

The staff were extremely friendly, professional, and attentive, always ensuring our soup was refilled before it dried up. While their prices are on the higher side, the quality of the meats, the excellent service, and the impeccable scenic sunset view during the evening make it worth the expense. I highly recommend Kin Tub Mookata for a great evening with friends and family over dinner, enjoying both the food and the view.

Really enjoyed the extremely rich 𝐁𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐒𝐞𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐓𝐚𝐫𝐭 ($𝟏𝟑) and fudgy 𝐏𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐨 𝐁𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐧𝐢𝐞 ($𝟖.𝟓𝟎)!!😋🤌🏼 Tho the latter could have had a stronger pistachio flavour.

- Chose 2 sauces — 𝙘𝙝𝙤𝙥𝙥𝙚𝙙 𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙞 and 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙞𝙖𝙡 𝙩𝙤𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙤, half a whole fish was simmered on each side with cabbage.
- I preferred the former as it tasted more multi-dimensional with a slightly tangy spicy profile while not being too salty!
- My dad enjoyed the latter more for its lighter flavour though could’ve more tomatoes 🍅

- Slightly sweet and I appreciated how it’s not sour, helped to wash down the grease and spice 🥥

- Stir-fried till tender yet not mushy, my mum who’s usually not a fan of eggplant took servings of this 😆
- Very garlicky with a tinge of sweetness and no beer bitterness, this caught us by surprise!
- Came with crunchy capsicums too, would prefer the dish to be less oily though.

- Came in a super huge cup!
- Sweetness was just right with acidity from the orange and lemon slices 🍊

- Refreshingly hydrating, concentrate tasted like it’s made from mostly real watermelon 🍉

Using the same brioche toast; spread with a layer of creamy burrata cheese; topped with avocado, smoked salmon, dills & pickled red onions; ingredients are fresh & light on tastebud; common but well-executed sandwich worth a try..

Thick brioche is fluffy inside & well-toasted to lightly crisp outside, not too buttery; came with 4 pieces of crispy panko prawn (tempura prawn), avocado, pickled daikon, cabbage slaw & bulldog sauce; the pickled daikon & cabbage slaw helps to balance out the greasiness; love how well the ingredients complement 1 another; worth a try..

Would recommend trying their one-of-a-kind deep fried Kang Kong ($16) when here! Lightly battered crunchy greens without overpowering the natural vegetable flavour, enhanced by the tangy spicy sauce. Also included crisp and succulent chunks of fish, and 2 generously sized deep fried prawns.

Hearty and satisfying traditional charcoal Mookata at decent prices. We went for the Mookata set ($69.90) that’s good for 3-4 pax. Enjoyed the sweet-sour and mildly spicy Tom yum soup. All the meats were well-marinated and tender. One can choose to have them in the soup or charcoal grilled for a smoky finish. Our favourites were the marinated and Tom yum chicken, pork belly, and marinated pork collar.

Decided to forgo the usual HDL/BITP and go with a classier Hotpot place recommended by friends. Ambience was brighty-lit, quiet, and very 'polished'. Service was also friendly and attentive. Went with the Pickled Chinese Cabbage with Pork Rib Soup ($38) - huge portion with lots of pickled cabbage and more than 10 pieces of pork ribs. The sour soup is an acquired taste though. Added on the Beef Platter ($28), Chinese Cabbage ($6), and the waitress said the Japanese Black Pork ($18) was 50% off for the day so of course we had to get that too. Saw reviews saying the Spicy Stewed Rabbit ($18) was good so we tried it as well, but it was nothing to write home about; tasted like tougher pieces of chicken. Overall, definitely fresh and quality ingredients but perhaps we should have gone with a different soup base because I found the meal to be pretty normal. Get the Tong Xin Special Drink ($3) though, it was sweet and tart and refreshing and perfect to wash everything down. Sauce bar was $4 per pax and I found it to be slightly lacking compared to HDL/BITP was they do provide some sort of fried kway tiao which was good. Total damage was ~$131 for 3 pax which was reasonable and we were bursting at the end.
