Mookata is usually prepared in a non-halal manner, hence not allowing our Muslim friends to enjoy the full experience.
However, the team behind Astons, which many of us would know for their affordable steaks, recently opened up a mookata restaurant, Sedap Mania.
Not only is this mookata place Halal-certified, it is also extremely affordable.
For just $10 per person, you’d be able to get the real deal, which includes all your seafood, meat and soup choices.
