Best Restaurant To Eat was invited to a special review at MooKata Steamboat and BBQ House located at the Kuchai Lama Food Court (KLFC), Lot 31208, Jalan Awan Makmur 6th Mile Jalan Old Klang Road Kuala Lumpur.
Mookata Steamboat BBQ House is located at the junction of Old Klang Road Puchong intersection i.e. adjacent to the Old Klang Road Police Station.

These days, most steamboat and BBQ either use gas or electricity for their steamboat but at Mookata Steamboat BBQ at Old Klang Road it uses a special Charcoal Briquette; which is long lasting, clean and environmental friendly for the steamboat and the BBQ. This way it is more authentic and taste even better especially the BBQ.
