Located on the eighth level of Orchard Central is 160-seater mookata restaurant Talay Kata. The Thai seafood barbeque buffet restaurant’s concept is different from most other eateries—you get to cook your food in the comforts of indoor air conditioning equipped with smoke suctions. Barbeques minus the nasty smell? We are in.
Prices range from S$18.80++ per adult during lunchtime buffet and S$28.80++ per adult during dinner buffet. The buffet’s highlight would be their decadent seafood spread such as crayfish, king crab and slipper lobster.
Talay Kata offers a variety of soup bases, from Bonito Soup, Chicken Soup to Tom Yum Soup, and the popular Salted Egg Seafood Soup.
From Japanese scallop, squid cube, slipper lobster to white clam; we must admit that we were pleasantly surprised by the impressive selection of fresh seafood. Furthermore, you can indulge in these free flow for just S$18.80++!
Seafood aside, Talay Kata also serves cabbage, chicken, fish sausage, pork belly, pork jowl, sea urchin ball. If you are too hungry to wait for the food to be cooked, why not help yourselves to the hot food live station first?
Gather all your desired ingredients and start cooking the raw food on either the dome-shaped grill or let them boil in the hot pot. A rich salted egg seafood broth is poured into the appliance’s moat. Just in case you are wondering, you are also entitled to unlimited soup refills.
We dunked heaps of ingredients into the steamboat and watched it cook in the piping hot yellow broth.
Interestingly, the broth actually solidifies when left heated over an extended period of time; it even became charred!
And we are sorry to disappoint but… we are not sure what the salted egg seafood broth’s recipe entails, and we will be honest that we would very much rather stick to classic Thai flavours.
