Donald & Lily offers Laksa, one of my favorites when I'm craving spicy and noodles in soup. Theirs has excellent broth, good amount of fish balls and shrimp and, at P250, not bad a price. Not great value for money, but, like I said, not bad.

The only thing I'd change here is the use of rice noodles instead of egg noodles. That's it.

Singapore cuisine dominated this newest food hall in the Metro, Makansutra. If you haven’t been here, it’s just on top of National Bookstore of Megamall Building A. It replaces the KFC before.

When one visits Singapore one must visit its iconic Hawker area. Somehow this location replicates that vibe. There are 12 stalls total and this one offers only two dishes. The idea is for each restaurant to focus on their masterpieces. The main chefs are all experienced and foreign.

Authentic Laksa impressed despite a price tag of Php 250 to a good for one bowl. The spice has a good kick and the presence of coconut milk is very much felt. It’s also got thicker soup base which I think is better. No need to fly for the real deal.

I also got to try the refreshing Mee Siam with Prawns also retailing at Php 250. Nice thin vermicelli noodles in a combination of spicy, sour and sweet taste. If you are a fan of tamarind this is for you. Two people can share this one.

Makansutra made waves when it first opened. We let two weekends pass after its opening before going there ourselves. Yup, this is a very late review...

It is pretty overwhelming at first-- well that's my initial reaction upon entering any new food court. This one had a lot of stalls with different specialty items and with one theme in common. What is food you encounter in Singapore, Alex? So we are talking of our Singaporean favorites and there are so many! Choosing a handful is the problem and that's how I felt while walking around Makansutra.

My fiance settled on laksa from this stall. I'm not a fan of laksa to be honest. This one is no different for me. It had a strong broth for me, but he wanted it to be spicier. There were lots of ingredients in the laksa, but I still thought it was just okay. To be fair, he also thought it was just okay. When it comes to Singaporean/Malaysian specialties, I prefer chili crabs, cereal prawns, satay and roti...

The laksa here is good . Enough to satisfy a craving, but still not the best you can find in Manila. The broth was spicy, flavourful, and complex - but the noodles reminded me too much of what you get in mami. Something was a miss, and i cant figure it out yet.

Despite falling short of expectation, i believe inwould come back for it if i find myslef in makasuntra again.

Makansutra is a little piece of Singapore here in Manila. Located on the 2nd floor of SM Megamall building A, Makansutra offers fare from Asia that you will traditionally see in the hawker stalls of SG. The food you will get here, whether you like it or not, tastes the way it would from where they originally came from.

Unlike some of the hawker places you may have visited, Makansutra is vibrant, lively and clean. This foodcourt style ‘restaurant’ currently houses at least 11 stalls with each one specializing in a different dish, making sure that we have a wide variety of choices.

So whether you’re feeling nostalgic and just want to get that taste of Singapore, or just want to experience that ‘hawker vibe’, then Makansutra is definitely a place you should visit.

Because Geylang Claypot Rice's claypots were all served, our main entree became DL's nonya laksa and mee siam. Dennis O was able to order fast since at that time, therr was no line here (i ever wonder kung talagang pinipilahan ito)

Well, they only serve two kinds of dish that costs about 250php each.

128204 mee siam
Two pieces of prawn, slices of crab meat kikiam and some more , was that alamang that i tasted? There's a special sauce that generally made the dish taste seafood like. The taste was unusual, pwede na. I find the serving small.

128204 nonya laksa
Worst laksa i've tasted. Honestly, i like and i find the laksa at shiok shiok or bugis chomp chomp a lot better-- the soup lacks the spiciness that i was looking for. Worst of all, they use glass noodles lang instead or rice noodles. The serving is also small for 250 pesos.

I heard that imported daw mga ingredients dito pero i am sadly surprised (wew) how our experience here went. Too bad they offer two dishes only.

I've been reading a lots of reviews about Makansutra last weekend. So I did a quick visit @ Megamall after office and decided to dine. Since I'm on a solo flight, I can't try everything inside the food hall.. Maybe next time 128522 With friends 128111128111

Donald & Lily is my choice since I wanted Laksa for dinner for only P250. Generous serving, and looks so enticing when it was served. The laksa has rich soup (lots of coconut cream!), has 2 prawns, 2 squid balls, slices of fish cakes , sliced scrambled eggs and its mild spicy. I ordered lemongrass iced tea in another booth (mostly drinks) for P70.

Food: everything is good! Best laksa i had.
Price: for a quality food, price is reasonable.

Aside from Geylang Claypot Rice, I got 1 bowl of Nonya Laksa at Donald and Lily for Php250.00. The counter told me that I need to consume once served and while it's hot for better quality which I did.

Nonya Laksa - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5

A little bit pricey but the taste, it is very creamy and flavorful. I like the balance of coconut cream and the sambal. I think they need to use bigger bowl for the soup. "medyo bitin"
