Pla Tong Mookata (Pan Fried Pork) - Thai-Western Fusion BBQ

Foodies would know.. Cheap eats in Bangkok has to include the Pla Tong mookata (pan fried pork),.

Do note this place is NON-HALAL!

For dinner, my friends and I came here.. It is located just at Victory Monument BTS.. Most directions available online aren't clear.. Although it's very, very easy to get here, we still got lost, thanks to Google Maps (because searching for this place usually leads you somewhere else), and blogs who gave very contradicting directions (because they can't draw a map), yes that blog..

Pla Tong Mookata is fairly cheap.. At just THB159 per person, it's all-you-can-eat buffet.. Drinks (only have water, beer, EST cola, ice) are charged separately (reasonably).. If you dine alone, it's THB199 as I noticed.. If you waste food, it's another count of THB159 extra..

Staff speak little English as this place is pretty much frequented by locals.. But there's nothing much to order anyway except perhaps drinks.. They will give you a trolley to put your drinks and a chit.. You eat first and pay when you're done..

There's a huge selection of meat such as seafood (frozen in ice/icy water - I can tell you it's really fresh), chicken and pork marinated in different flavours, you can try a little of each and find your favourite..

There's also bread and a few choices of spread (butter, jam etc).. And another row of finger food like sausages, croquettes, fries.. and another row of greens and leafy vegetables..

On another corner there's the make-your-own desserts, from ice-kacang with ice from the ice-box, sweet desserts, and a few kind of fruits such as guava, pineapple, watermelon, melon, etc..

There's no oil to cook with, with the pan, they'll give you hot water for boiling and my suggestion is to pick some pork belly and "wipe" the plate for the lard..

How to get here: 
BTS - Victory Monument
1. The easiest way to get here is by using the BTS.. One cannot NOT know how to use the skytrain..  Get off at Victory Monument.. Use Exit 2 and walk down the stairs..
2. On your left is Century The Movie Plaza..
Eat Am Are
3. In front of you is a T-junction with a corner restaurant with the name "Eat Am Are"..
4. Cross the road, Pla Tong Mookata is just right beside "Eat Am Are"..
You cannot miss it.. It's just 30 seconds walk from the BTS.. 

Google Maps
1. Type "Pla Tong Pan Fried Pork".. Not any other words..



Taxi/Tuk-tuk:
1. Just say BTS Victory Monument, in Thai, it's actually called Anusawari Chai Samoraphan..
2. Then set your eyes on the Century The Movie Plaza, and follow the directions set out above..
Seriously, taxi? Tuk-tuk? Unless you are staying in this vicinity.. Otherwise, BTS people.. BTS..!!!

I set out to get this map for those who are visual people..


As simple as it is..

Forget other blogs - because other blogs made us lost our way..
