Cat cafes are extremely big in Bangkok, if you didn’t know it by now. While there’s many well-known cat cafes scattered around the city, barely any of them feel like you’re at home with the cats. And that, my friends, is what makes Mohu Mohu Cafe special.
I’ve heard about Mohu Mohu Cafe from my friends on many occasions, but I never got the chance to visit it until just recently. My friend tells me the cafe is very easy to get to and I agreed to go because why not? It’s not like I had anything better to do in the evening. And plus, it’s always great to catch up with friends an moopings alike. 😉
Mohu Mohu Cafe
Walking to the cafe is a breeze. Take the MRT to Ladprao and head over to exit 1. Use Google Maps to find out where it is since I’m not going to give you step-by-step instructions to the cafe. It’s effort.
The cafe is located in a townhouse. That’s not something you see everyday. Sure, most animal cafes in Bangkok tend to appear in rented spaces across town. Fair enough. In Mohu Mohu’s case, the cafe is a townhouse. Sweet! The house has 2 available parking spots, perfect for anyone who wants to drive there. Though, I’m not sure if you can park on the street since the street is quite narrow. Anyone who lives in Bangkok knows how ridiculously small sois are here. Absurd.
Mohu Mohu Cafe Rules
All of us removed our shoes and went to wash our hands. Above the sink, there were three nifty little signs everyone should read before entering the cafe. These are very important.
It’s basically common courtesy if you think about it, really. Don’t disturb the cats. Period. Anyone who has cats will know what to do or what not to do. But alas, there will be those who can’t contain their excitement and break the goddamn rules. Sad.
It pays to know this cafe limits stays within 90 minutes. Yeah, I know how much people want to hog seats or spend as much time with the cats as possible. But, really, 90 minutes is more than enough to snap much-needed selfies and cat pics. And it’s called courtesy, just FYI.
At every cat cafe, there will always be this sign to remind all customers the need to wash their hands! Nobody wants sick cats, got it?
Enter the Cafe!
With all that jazz out of the way, it’s time to enter the cafe!
When we stepped inside, we stepped into the living room space and along the wall boasted a DIY shelf held together by clips. Pretty cool! Most of the books there are in Japanese and Thai, I think. I didn’t pay much attention to it, though.
And of course, on top, is a sleeping cat! Remember the rules? No touchy!
The rest of the seating arrangement is downstairs, dominated by (fat) cats.
We got to the cafe pretty late. I’d say we arrived there around close to 7 PM. There is literally no one around except another table with 2 girls, who were well-mannered. That’s a plus. Well, we got most of the cafe to ourselves! Whoo-hoo!
To the left of the wall at the entrance is a detailed board with the possible residents we may encounter.
Oh my god, I mean, just look at those faces! Aren’t they super adorbs? Eagle-eye readers probably notice most of the cafe’s residents aren’t purebreds, but rather, local Thai cats. They say (I mean, stressing on ‘say’) Thai cats are unbelievably affectionate. I had to test the theory, naturally.
My friends and I headed to the counter and each of us ordered our dinner and drinks. You see this card above? This card is given to us after we ordered our meals, that allows the owner can correctly locate our table or check the bill.
Food & Drinks
Once our meals are served, oh man, I started to drool on mine. (Because I got damn hungry by this point). I ordered pizza toast with egg and egads! It looks like a taste bud killer. The pizza is topped with melted cheese, tomato sauce, ham chunks, salt and pepper, and an egg.
Once I cut into the egg, parts of it just oozed out, just the way I like it! I shamelessly gobbled everything up in 10 minutes or less… It was soooooooo good!
As for our drinks, my friends ordered Thai milk tea, Thai ice tea, and I absolutely forget what I ordered. Oh, and one very important note about ordering food and drinks at the cafe (or rather, any cat cafe) is to make sure the cats don’t eat your food! If anyone sees a cat approaching their table, try to gently push them away or lift your food up or do whatever it takes to stop them! Obviously, don’t scream at them or anything since you’re not a hairy-ass barbarian, am I right?
Okay, with vital information out of the way, I know why you’re here; you want to see cat pictures, right? Well, here you go! Soak it in, furballs!
I had an a-ma-zing time at the cafe! It’s great to go there at the end of the day knowing for a fact it should be close to empty. Should. Most of the cats are friendly once you befriend them. Hell, I spent a chunk of my time taming some of them and in return, he sat by me. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. What I really adored about the cafe is its homely feel. I really enjoyed that.
Service-wise, it was satisfactory. I’d like to point out that the prices here are mostly standard for cafes, with or without animals. So, be prepared to pay a little extra.
And okay, I lied; here’s the map to the cafe since I’m nice. Sort of.
