[Food Tasting] Talay Kata @ Orchard Central | NEW Tom Yum Soup and Spicy Cheese Dip

I'm back at Talay Kata @ Orchard Central for a huge feast again! Not sure if you remember, but I wrote a review for them last year (Click HERE to read). They are back with a wider selection of food choices and a whole new Mookata experience - NEW Tom Yum Soup, Spicy Cheese Dip and a really huge platter of decadent seafood! 

Unlike most typical Mookata restaurants, Talay Kata offers different soup base varieties - the original Chicken soup, the all new Tom Yum and even unique flavours such as Salted Egg Yolk and Bonito Flavor. The Tom Yum could be a tad bit spicier (for my liking) but it would be great to share among the non-spicy lovers as well. But you know what? I'm just really glad that I can finally find a Mookata restaurant that serves Tom Yum soup! 

Have you ever tried getting up from your seat to the buffet counter several times just to find that your favourite dish has not been refilled? The seafood platter is here to save your cravings and kickstart your Mookata feast. It's a really generous portion for two -  fresh succulent lobsters, crayfish, scallops and prawns. Definitely more #instaworthy too. 

Talay Kata also serves a wider array of beef and pork, including marinated meat. I personally prefer the all-time favourite pork belly/ bacon which were quite juicy and fattening (It's a compliment and I don't mind the unhealthy fats for such delicacy). The marinated selection, on the other hand, suits those with a stronger palate. 

The Thai style cooked food choices were not only appetizing to look at, but had an authentic thai taste. We were told that the food are cooked by an authentic Thai chef! This explains why the food had such high standards even though they were served in a buffet.

The Tom Yum Chicken is one of my favourite - sour, spicy and so tantalizing. It's a little cold when you take it off the counter, I think it would taste better if u just BBQ it for a little while.

The Mama Big Bowl is included in every buffet session. Trust me, it's not like any other Maggi Mee noodles. The combination of the sweet, sour and spicy flavours were on point, and I could still feel the refreshing taste lingering in my imaginative taste buds even after a few weeks of eating it. 

The spicy cheese dip was a good complement to the overall meat dishes, adding a savoury taste without being too gelat. I prefer a spicier and "cheesier" kind of cheese but considering that the buffet is incredibly affordable, I would gladly enjoy the cheese dip.

We were so impressed with the food variety, though it was such a pity that we couldn't finish trying every single dish due to the huge portion of the seafood platter and Mama Big Bowl. Our tummies are greatly satisfied, ending the day with a food coma. 

Guess what? If you're coming on a weekday (Mon-Thurs), you don't even have to pay much to enjoy the same food as we did. 

Bring along your partner and enjoy 50% off the 2nd person! 
Let me do a quick calculation for you: After discount, each person will only be paying less than $26 nett! If you are in for a hearty meal, Talay Kata is a Mookata place you definitely wish to consider.
