During my 5-day stay in Singapore, I was able to dine at Makansutra Gluttons Bay twice. I met two different sets of friends on two different days and the funny thing is, they ordered almost the same set of food. Well, I wonder if that means those are the best-selling dishes there. Maybe they are or maybe Filipinos have the same palate for food.
Makansutra Gluttons Bay is filled with many food carts that offer different food choices. You dine in open air with the view of Marina Bay on the background. I think it’s better to dine here at night so you can eat under the moonlight.
My favorite among the dishes I had in Makansutra Gluttons Bay is the Cereal Prawns. Cereal Prawns are well, prawns coated with cereals. I think they are deep fried because they are so crunchy that you can eat them all without removing the shells. Or maybe my friends are playing with me. But I am them all and I’m still fine so I think that’s okay.
Satay is a popular dish in Singapore. I have tried it in other food spots in Singapore aside from Makansutra. Satay is similar to the barbeque that we know but I think the ingredients they use to marinate the meat are different. They use a lot spices to marinate the meat. I could taste the spices with every bite. The meat they commonly use for their satay are pork, beef, goat, and chicken. They serve satay with spicy peanut dip.
I also had a taste of their BBQ Chicken Wings. The chicken wings are also marinated using certain spices. I was curious how the chicken wings got so straight. The secret was in the way they cooked them.
These Seafood Rolls are delicious!
I experienced something different in Makansutra – the Hokkien Hae Mee. Hokkien Hae Mee is egg noodles cooked in stock then topped with slices of shrimp and squid. It’s served with sambal (chili-based) sauce and calamansi on the side.
Of course, it isn’t a complete meal without rice and for this instance, Yang Chow Rice.
Our thirst was quenched by the popular Sugar Cane Juice with Lemon. I didn’t know that I had to squeeze the lemon in the juice. Lol!
Here’s a shot of me and my Singapore trip buddies dining in Makansutra Gluttons Bay.
