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.

I was expecting a lot from this place, I even convinced my bf to bring me here because I really miss Singaporean food. Well, the food was just ok (could be better) but boy was it pricey! I 128517

You don't have to go to Singapore. Makansutra has everything you need for the authentic Hawker experience, all you have to do is add "-lah" to the end of your sentence.

My faves here are the chicken satay, roti and laksa. Some of the other highlights are the salted egg prawns and bakuteh. There were other dishes we tried but I forgot what they were. Everything was generally good. Portions just right depending on what you order, some were good for one. Although, they display a "sample" plate to show you what it looks like so it gives you an idea before you order.

Price - it's the same as prices in Singapore. (except you are in Manila, paying in Peso, earning Manila rate)

The place is super insta-friendly also. Has a nice grunge, urban vibe. Lots of interesting color, graffiti, texture and character. Fun for friends.

Slight Downside: you will smell like food after coming here.
But worth it, lah.

Since we were in Megamall we decided to try this place since I like Asian street food. The noodles with chicken wrapped in paper was not bad-i liked the chicken. The wanton soup i didn't like. It was not as flavorful as the wanton from other chinese restos. This place is street food but with resto prices

Hokkien noodles is my #2 favorite next to Fried Kway Teow in Chinatown in Singapore. When I lived there a few years ago, I would always take the train to Chinatown for my noodles fix and it always make me happy!

Yesterday, while waiting for my glasses 128083 to be ready, I decided to eat in Makansutra and have my noodles x SG fix. The reviews were mixed, so I decided to give it a try. I found Mian Ji and the staff told me that their bestseller is their Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodles. So I went ahead an order it's (220php). Serving wise it was good for sharing, but taste wise I got really disappointed. 128557 I had to put so much chilli paste so I could taste it, it was bland. Shrimp was overcooked or maybe not fresh, it was rubber-ish. 9996️ I only finished 1/4 of the dish. I should've just went somewhere else for a nice lunch meal. Waste of money!

I also had lemon grass iced tea (80php) I liked it. Reminded me of the drinks in Bugis where you can't decide which one to get as there were so many choices.

I always wanted to try this place because i'm just so miss Singapore Food, but never have a chance because to go SM Megamall, I really really need to make sure have something on around there too, else, i will need to think thrice hahaha, why? Coz I can't handle the traffic 128518 at Megamall area.

So it's lunch time & heading to Megamall after doing something at surrounding there, and directly heading to Makansutra,

So excited to see so many stall selling the food that i miss, feels like to order all hahah but well tummy have capacity, so decided to order,

127848 Black Gluttionous Rice (Bubur Pulut Hitam) w/ ice cream & Ice Barley Lemon
127860 Roti Prata (plain) with curry (on another review)
127859 Oyster Omelette or Oh Luak (chinese name) & (on another review)
🍽 Black Carrot Cake with ikan bilis 128031 (on another review)

Waiting for about 10mins, here comes the food,

128077🏻The portion is generous (3-4 pax) , taste is so good, the thickness of the pulut hitam is perfect, not so sweet (the sweetness come from icecream), & the blend between hot & cold are so so so Perfect combination,

127865the lemon barley, i think could be prove, too much lemon, can't taste the barley but overall is good,

P.S. Barley is good & healthy drink for your body to fight the heat & improve your metabolism :)

So if you have time, go try singapore local dessert at makansutra,

Late post peeps.
Had lunch with the wife and her girlfriends. Can't think of anything I'd rather do than listen to girls doing girl talk.
We tried 4 different stalls and I can say they were all delicious. The table had their own different opinions but it was all on the good side. Will definitely try the other stalls again. Cheers!

If you've tried the authentic Hokkien Mee and Satay in Singapore, this will definitely disappoint!

The usual 4-pcs shrimp in SG was replaced with 2 shrimps and 2 small cuts of pork. Also a bit pricy!

As early as 10am, I went to Megamall today for Laksa's sake. Heard that we now have Makansutra in the country(I know I'm already too late for the news). Remembering how good the food are in Singapore's Makansutra made me really excited. Plus I am really a BIG fan of Laksa.

As we know, Makansutra does not only cater Singaporean dishes. So yeah, I was also excited to trying out food like Roti Prata and anything that would catch my attention.

Prior to arriving to the place I already have dishes in mind.

Donald and Lily's Laksa:
- For me, it's 7/10. The broth was okay. The spices were not that bad. What disappointed me was it's not hot. I was hoping for a hot spicy soup this morning. So yeah, I didn't enjoy it. It made a big difference for me

Curry Flurry's Roti Prata:
- I would give it a 5/10. The curry wasn't strong. They initally gave me a wrong dish. The chicken was cold. And the roti prata was very oily.

Gooba Hia's Dry Beef Kway Teow Noodles:
- This is a 8/10, for me. I liked the noodles. But the tripe and beef servings were too small you couldn't even savor it. I like the taste of the sauce though. Plus it was hot! Yey! Very flavorful.

Am I going back again? MAYBE. But it would definitely be for a different dish. Not for the above mentioned food. The ambiance of the place was okay, by the way. :)

I don't remember exactly which 3-4 stalls we bought from, but they made me feel like whatever I eat in this place will generally be a good experience.

I have a distrust for "street food" / community style food places, especially after a horrible experience at maginhawa's streat.

To me, it is the responsibility of the community's curator to make sure all the food is above the bar (rather than just taking anyone who could pay rent). Makansutra fulfilled this responsibility well.

The place looks like those hawker stalls. It has a vibe that would make one feel that he is dining in Singapore.

The hainanese chicken was tender and flavorful but the sauce was a bit salty for my palate. My favorite though was rhe Lormee. It looked like maki with pansit, veggies, fish and meat. Just think lomi in thick starchy sauce.

Will definitely be back to try other food there.

Happy to be back in Makansutra last Monday. I am starving after busy afternoon at work. Since I'm alone, I looked for something enough for my appetite. I noticed that this place is ideal for groups, most are big servings.

Lucky to find a perfect bowl. I had Gooba Hia's noodle bowl with sace (P120) Perfect for my solo flight mode. Thin noodles that I usually have in Chinese restos. Its is topped with a beef sauce, that is rich and tasty and mustasa. On the side is a tamago egg. This is a simple yet satisfying meal

Also, on the beverage station, ordered a cup of Barley with Lime (P80), refreshing and has barley grains128522 something new!

​Chicken Rice. 50% of the chicken was uncooked. Seryoso. Nrealize ko lang nung himihimay ko na sa plate ko. I can't help but compare sa 101 Hawker, mas masarap pa din dun. LOL.

Ito Chicken Wrap masarap, pero feeling ko kung may ganito sa 101 Hawker mas masarap pa din dun! Hahahaha!

One of the establishments found in Makansutra, which is inspired by Singaporean food hawker.

We tried the following at Gooba Hai:
Slow Braised beef with tendon (rice - 280PHp)
Mixed beef platter (300PHp)

Both dishes where flavorful and good for sharing depending on your appetite.

After trying out Gooba Hai, we tried this one next.

We ordered:
Coffee Pork (300PHp), it wasn't worth the price. It was fatty and the serving size was small for the amount we paid.
Chicken claypot small (280PHp) this one was pretty much a hefty dish that can be shared by two people. Unless you are hungry this is one sulit dish. 128514
