Season 5 THTP Sidetalk Ep.#7 | Lukhon Thai

By Halal Trip | 25, Aug, 2022

With one of us traveling soon, we talk about recent travel hacks we've come across over a Singaporean pastime - eating!

Halal mookata is becoming increasingly popular among locals and Lukhon Thai is a Halal-certified location in the East.

It's a great way to catch up with friends and family over food and this Halal alternative uses butter, margarine, and sometimes chicken fat.
