If you are craving for Asian cuisine and dishes rich in spices and flavor, you have to try Makansutra which opened just last year in Megamall Building A.
I first heard about Makansutra in my trip to Singapore last 2012 but I wasn’t able to try it. Finally finally! It’s here. I was ecstatic to have a taste of Singapore once more. I am really a fan of Laksa and also Nasi Lemak. The latter I first tried when I went to Malaysia plus we also had the opportunity to be taught how to cook this traditional Malay dish. It was such a feast to my tastebuds and a treat to my eyes to encounter an authentic Nasi Lemak here at Makansutra.
What’s good about Makansutra is that it is group / family friendly. Their dishes are for sharing. There are 11 stalls to choose from and everything is equally appealing and worth a try.
From Jin Ki Kway Chap and Braised Duck stall, this is their Combo Bento (P300) which can be shared by 2-3 pax.
The Cereal Prawns (P550) from HK Street Old Chun Kee stall is a must try! We Filipinos love this dish because probably it had a kick of sweetness to it.
The Satay Set from Alhambra Padang Satay and Muslim Food comes with rice and soto soup and it only cost P270 for 10 sticks. It is very affordable considering it can be shared by 2 but it didn’t compromise quality. Its taste was perfect in every way.
If you are up for having noodles, try their Braised Beef Noodles (P280) at the Gooba Hia stall. Their beef was very tender and it was bursting in flavor. Absolutely recommended for the noodle lovers
Let’s not forget the Plain Roti (P80) at Curry Flurry. I really loved the curry flavor and the texture of the roti was very light and airy. It was just right. We also had the privilege to see how this was being made and it was so exciting to eat it – to see how your food is being done. They also had Roti with cheese and it was so delicious as well! Those are 2 of my favorite things.
I also enjoyed their Oyster Omelette (P260/P320) and they were soooo generous with the oysters. They say that oysters are an aphrodisiac, I guess the next time my husband and I drop by we’ll order this again since they were very indulgent in their oysters.
I also enjoyed Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee (P220/270) at Mian Ji stall since it had chili to it and was spicy to my liking.
In my first time in Makansutra, this was what Jason ordered and I had laksa then so I just looked on longingly at him. This was the Chicken Claypot Rice which priced from P280-P540 depends on how many of you are going to eat. I was glad to have my fill of this wonderful dish! This is a must order when you go to Makansutra. It was served uniquely in this clay pot and as you open it, you could see steam coming out which looked extra appealing and it tasted equally great.
What’s good about Makansutra is that they already have lunch meals! Yay! These are served for only P199! How great is that! Check out the many stalls that serve these P199 Meals.
I was glad to meet the man behind Makansutra, Mr. KF Seetoh co-partners with Chef JJ Yulo for Makansutra PH.
It was such a good experience to be dining here at Makansutra because you don’t have to be in Singapore to taste these wonderful flavors and have the same authenticity and quality. (Plus it’s even cheaper than flying to Singapore!)
Wee Nam Kee Hainanese chicken has a stall in Makansutra SG but of course it already has its own restaurant here in the PH. But if you’re looking for Hainanese Chicken, Makansutra PH serves it as well but I’m more up for their other interesting dishes like the clay pot rice and the Nasi Lemak. 🙂
Overall I was so glad that Makansutra finally came to the Philippines and since my husband loves Asian cuisine I’m pretty sure we would be dining often in this place that boasts of heritage, culture and a burst of spices and flavor. 🙂
