It was a recommendation by my friend to try out and little did I know that my once a week lunch place Sunway Geo also does have them, but came all the way to check VeryThai Mookata & Street Food at The Starling Mall, PJ.

I do come to Starling Mall quite often and just miss them out. Consider it like a hidden gem for Thai food in the mall. It is located at the Popular bookstore wing at Level 2. very thai sunway geoIt was my friend’s family affairs that came here for dinner and the food here was good and the price is affordable.

the ambience indeed a nice and comfortable. I had late lunch at 2.30pm on that day that is why looks quite empty.

best mookata in pjThe menu seems quite extensive and I was into their Mookata cuz of the pricing @ RM 59 for Set A. very thai menuThen they do have a lot other kind of street food which is available or even order ala carte dishes. Today only 4 of us we have some mix and match. DSC02951Again we ver order again for first timer, as everything does looks good in the menu. starling mall uptown damansaraThe classic drinks that usually will order are:

Thai Milk Tea @ RM 8.50 , Lemon Grass @ RM 7.50 , something unusual is the Thai Pink Milk tea  @ RM 8.50. best thai saladFor the Octopus Salad @ RM 22.50, this has swim to one of my top recommendations if you are looking for one. Fresh seafood was added in as prawns were fresh and juicy, octopus just boil to perfection. Thai glass noodle were cook to perfection. Right texture, slight chewy, soak with the classic sour sauce. Yumz!. The amount of sourness, sweetness, hint of spiciness just the right balance as you can taste all of it in one go. At the end you get those classic Thai street food after taste. pork neckDeep Fried Pork Neck @ RM 22.50 is also another classic street food that I would usually get when I am at Thai. It is a dish not for everyone from this stall. with the word mention its deep fried. Hence you will get the texture of slight rubbery, smooth meat texture to dip with the cher special sauce is the magic of it. You will get this confusing taste as it looks spicy but do give a nice salty, mild spicy, sour aftertaste.very thai pjbest thai pork leg riceThis would be one of my highly recommended dishes. The classic street food is Stewed Pork leg Rice  @ RM 20.50.  It is one of the best pork leg rice that suits my liking. The pork leg did not overcook, where the fats is still bouncy and not soft. Meat boil to perfection that is not too soft nor hard. The 2 secret that makes this one of my top recommended is the little side soup base which is actually the gravy. Strong aroma with hint of herbal, and hint of saltiness. Once  you add onto the meat, with a spoon of rice and top with the chili. It is the best combination. The explosion of flavours in your mouth is just satisfying.

thai hotpot

On the picture it looks seems small, thought that its easily for 2 pax. I am wrong when I am ordering that much amount of food. It is actually quite a big portion and most unique, first time seeing this with cheese in it. Makes me think that is Korean x Thai???

Cheesy Tomyum Pot with Mama Noodle @ RM 49. If you have a strong palate, then this dish will suits you well. Creaminess of this dish is quite interesting as it could be from the cheese effect. Nice balance of sourness and mild spiciness. The soup is pack with flavours. very thai mookatajeng jeng jeng.  Next is my Mookata  Set A @ RM 59.. I am certainly in love with their cutleries and also the look of its mookata. First time I see such a premium golden bbq soup holder.

Before we start, we were told the usual, need to move around the pork lard to oil the top. Then only start adding in the pork slices. 

Good point here is after you had mookata you wont smell it as they have a strong suction that goes underneath the table, clean environment too.mookata in pjbest thai steamboatbest mookata in klDSC02980Just look at the amount of food for 4 pax. seafood mookata klFor the soup base, we started of with clear soup as we were told we can do that then only add tomyum soup after that. Soup base is actually quite tasty after you have meat oil that flows into it. Tomyum will be subjective in thispoint as we love soup. After cooking a while, there is a mixture of flavours into it that might makes it unique. If you drink it before mixture it is actually decently good. best phad thaiPad Thai with Tiger Prawn @ RM 19.  Pad Thai have many version. I enjoy more those on the slightly sweet side. then I can add their condiments like vinegar, chili powder to enhance the flavour. The dish here which is exactly like I had when I was in Bangkok last year.

Again, might not be your cup of tea as a lot people associate this like Thai Char Koey Teow
best Tub Tim Grob pj

For ending, I will never miss my Tub Tim Krub – Red Rubby with Coconut milk @ RM 8.50. This is certainly must order here. A nice balance of coconut and evaporate milk, that gives a nice coconut arom that it needs. Ice here is not the harsh shaven ice, more towards the smooth side. Generous ingredients for its waterchesnut jelly and decent since. Every bite you can get the crunch of chestnut, the softness of jelly and the nangka aroma and sweetness just makes it well.

Cendol and Melon with Coconut Milk @ RM 9.50best thai food in pjvery thai uptown starling mallIf you are looking for a decent strong flavour profile of Thai food, I will be recommending VeryThai Mookata & Street Food in Starling Mall. Just note that my food was good as it was 2.30 pm. this could be one of the best Thai food in PJ.

Started off with Pomfret @ RM55 (400-500g) – curry leaves puree marinated Golden Pomfret, charcoal roasted. 

The fragrant of the curry leaves on the top, makes it fragrant. This certainly is My special higlight of the day. The Pomfret is so fresh and cook to perfection. Charcoal roasted till fish oil is oozing out, the oil its one of the element that gives a nice hint fragrant, and the meat is so soft and juicy. Feels like taking a knife cutting it thru like a cake. 

DSCF4904The clever mixture of Curry leaves puree is the secret ingredient that enhances the flavour of it. Fish meat is soft, fresh and juicy. It gives you a nice green aroma that its need with light fish meat and a bit of nice bite texture on the gravy is just well balance.

Garlic Cheese nan. I looks simple but the nan is dough and bake nicely. Nice bite chewy texture, and the Swiss cheese that the chef use is perfect! give a nice bitter, saltines to enhance the taste of the nan. I quite like it as the taste of it is quite harmonious.

flour famous butter chickenButter Chicken @ is totally on point. Curry is slightly thick to my liking. It is smooth texture, everybite is filled with satisfaction. Chicken meat is soft, tender and juicy. Well coated with the curry.

Pairing it with their rice is on point. The grains texture is quite different from many others as was share that they used different cooking method. It is a long grain that cook to perfection. A bit of like uncook texture 20%. Every bite is a nice bite of grains, yet pair with the curries is pretty well balance. Pack with flavours yet it is not overpowering. 

best modern indian restaurant klCoconut Red Prawn @ RM 88 – Red Prawn with Coconut Sauce and Thai Red Chilis is a clever cooking. It looks simple, it is fill with simple fragrance umaminess. Coconut sauce that the bottom is smooth,  prawn is cook to perfection and it is very fresh. You can taste the freshness of prawns with its hint of coconut sauce, hint of chili after taste, with the oil gives  a nice balance touch.best indian restaurant klprawnDSCF4936 I enjoy every little sip of this gravy. 
best briyani kl

Mutton Biryani  @ RM 90. Single portion grass Fed mutton, Biryani served with Basil curd. another dish that worth the shout out. To cook medium rare mutton in this pot of rice is certainly another skills set that need to be mastered. Cooking it well along that the grain is not over cook yet the mutton remains medium rare inside a pressure heat. 

Mutton is soft and tender, that gives a nice bite texture with long graints mix with spices, gives a nice mixture of well balance spices. Mutton do not have the lamb strong taste. The after taste spices of briyani just linger around your month.   best poori kl butter chicken   modern indian cuisine

A perfect ending for my meal. The dessert is highly advise not to share. I enjoyed every bits of the perfect biscuity base baked fragrant that I like, a taste f nature with hint of nutty end yet brings out the aroma of mild sweetness. 

chef yogi flour restuarantI am suprise to see Chef Yogi serve the last dessert. an honour to meet him in person with such a strong passionate chef that is cooking all ingredients with respect. Understanding from his perception of coming out with food  concept and ingredients that he has, quality food in this lunch menu he is serving definitely with the price tag and the taste worth to explore. .

t had been a while since I enjoy a meal with such a big smile and remain happy for the rest of the days. It is slightly expensive but it is money well spend for myself. A highgly recommended place by me.

definitely will be back again.
