Situated within the rows of shophouses in Geylang, Ladyboy Mookata has always been a hot favourite among mookata fans, its numerous molten cheese dips being a main draw. But this month, there’d be even more reason for you to head here for dinner: Ladyboy will be releasing its exclusive Truffle Cheese Dip, available for a limited period of time only.
You can either go ala-carte or buffet-style with this outlet, but let’s be real – you can’t turn down free-flow Truffle Cheese.
For this month only, each person may also get their first bottle of Chang Beer at a whopping $1, with subsequent beers costing the usual $7. Get ready to have a really good night!
First, you’d be presented with an extensive menu, each item pictured and colour-coded according to its price. Food items such as vegetables and fishballs are priced at $1.90, while the mid-range pricing for meats such as the Ladyboy Pork Collar, Ladyboy Chicken, and Pork Belly is $2.90. The most expensive items cost $3.90, and are, of course, the more popular meats such as Bacon, Beef Shabu, and Bacon-wrapped Enoki.
But what’s Mookata without the seafood? Predictably, the seafood items here go for either $2.90 or $3.90, but don’t just expect the usual prawns and squid when you’re here. Ladyboy offers an array of seafood that you’d won’t usually see at a Mookata buffet – think Baby Lobsters, Crayfish, and even Abalone Slices.
Having tried almost every item on the menu, we can safely affirm that the must-order for any dining party would be the Crayfish ($3.90). A single serving consists of 3 crayfish tails, each tail being decently sized.
Of course, any Singaporean’s barbecue meal would not be complete without a vital component – sauce. The selection of sauces available at Ladyboy is perfect for the Singaporean palate, especially with their very own Ladyboy Chilli which delivers such a kick when paired with your barbecued food. For those who can’t handle spice, opt for everyone’s favourite sweet Thai Chilli Sauce, which goes especially well with barbecued chicken.
The star of the meal, however, has to be the Truffle Cheese Dip ($3.90). Once a piece of truffle cheese-coated meat enters your mouth, the aroma begins wafting into your nostrils, the truffle fragrance being ever-so tantalising as usual. The truffle is more on the milder side, allowing the cheese to shine through without overpowering it.
However, don’t expect the Truffle Cheese dip to be all gooey like melted mozzarella. Truffle oil is used to infuse the flavour into the cheese, ultimately creating a more liquidy consistency. Think cheese fondue, instead of cheese pizza.
Besides Truffle Cheese, another brand new addition to their menu would be the Peri Peri Cheese Dip, a flavour familiar to any Nando’s fan. Tangy with just a touch of spice, it tastes best combined with the saltiness of grilled bacon.
Other dips such as the classic Ladyboy Cheese, Mayo Cheese, Mozarella Cheese, and cult favourites Golden Salted Egg Cheese and Tom Yum Cheese are available as well, each costing $3.90 ala-carte. Can’t make up your mind? Don’t worry. The ring around your grill will have 3 moats – perfect for when you just want to have them all.
With a $5 top-up, you will receive a Personal Yuan Yang Steamboat Soup, one half containing red tomyum soup and the other chicken soup. Though a little milder, the tom yum was packed with flavour, its richness and sweetness making it incredibly addictive. Quickly, the tomyum soup climbed ranks and became one of our favourites that night. Be sure to order a serving of Thai Mama Noodle ($1.90) to cook in your broths!
Besides washing down the tons of food consumed with Chang Beer, homemade drinks such as Thai Milk Tea, Green Milk Tea, Thai Lime Tea and Lemongrass are available as well, with each costing you $3.50. Go for the Lemongrass if you need yourself a refreshing thirst-quencher – it is light and citrusy, the best drink for you to cleanse your palate with.
The best part of any meal? Dessert. With an extra $8, you’d get yourself free-flow icecream and free-flow homemade drinks. Flavours here are pretty interesting: besides mango, Thai Milk Tea and black sesame, look forward to trying flavours such as bubur hitam and rose bandung, Ladyboy’s take on the popular local dessert and drink.
By the end of the night, you and your friends would probably be full from – not just the food – but the good conversations that you’d have over grilling seafood and meat. With opening hours stretching from 6PM all the way to 2AM, Ladyboy can, and should, be your next supper spot if your friends are looking to unwind and just have a good time.
