Fine Fare and Tacos in Mexico City
“A taco is a spoon, plate and napkin, all in one..” and that is one simple story behind Mexican food that Prof Alberto Peralta weaved at the recently concluded Foro Mundial Gastronomia Mexicana. This fourth edition of their gastronomic festival in Mexico City was a celebration of this rich and often misunderstood food culture of their country. The five day festival had a series of talks and conferences with  food...MORE
Food Trucking in San Francisco
Oh the irony. One day I was checking out Malaysian laksa, Indian roti prata and Teochew kway chap in our Makansutra Hawkers market in Manila, and to get away from it all, I headed for a break in San Francisco. Of course I had to check out the best in the food truck scene there and it led me to among others, a Filipino sisig (chopped pork in soy and...MORE
Gang Shi Xiao Chao: A little Cantonese makan fair
Chinese food is getting more westernized and I don’t mean things like mugugaipan (some American mushroom and chicken dish), Singapore Noodle or chow mien appearing commonly in our menus these days. Chinese restaurants are just that- they offer a rojak of anything Chinese people here eat- from sambal something to truffle oil this and that. We are quickly losing our grandma’s makan heritage. Back in the day (and that’s not...MORE
Haig Road Food Centre: Boiled Noodles is not Boring
This is one of the most boring dish…names. It means “boiled noodles” and really, can anyone expect anyone else to line up and even pay for a platter of noodles with such a name? In fact, yes, you can, in smart makan nations like Singapore. Because the mere mention of Mee Rebus, conjures up way more than just what the name spells. It’s like chilli crabs.. truly really a misnomer,...MORE
Assam Pedas in Batu Pahat
The name of this little old quaint town is unashamedly used here to refer something or someone who’s ulu (from unknown kampong origins). But there are plenty known respected Singaporeans and PRs (like food blogger Cathering Ling of Camemberu and Phillip Lim of Keropokman) who once hailed from this little town. So Batu Pahat or “chiselled stone”, is small in size, ulu by reputation but normal in so many other...MORE
North Bridge Road Food Centre: Unknown little gems in north of town
There are over 100 public hawker centres in Singapore and every time I think I have visited them all, another obscure one comes up and demands a visit from me. Yes we have only too many top ten lists of everything edible and colourful found in your social media news and kaypo pages but, of course, there are way more than ten in any top lists anyone care to share....MORE
Spying for more Deliciousness
Work does not stop now that we’ve inked the Makansutra Singapore 2017 edition. In fact’s, it all back to the drawing, I mean chomping board. We need to revisit existing listings to check consistency and changes, uncover new ones and often come across mediocrity plus list new types of dishes, either the old and forgotten or a new heritage fusion. Fresh images have to be taken and done in a...MORE
