Renovation- 11 April to 7 May
It has been 10 years and it’s high time we give Makansutra Gluttons Bay yet another make-over. A little botox here and a lipo there, but we will still be the same, better, newer and niftier. So don’t miss us too much and just go for a little diet from 11 April to first week of May. See you soon again, you skinner people. MORE

Red Hornbill Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee
It’s hard to find good Malaysian food in Singapore. I’m not sure why, since the two countries share so much in terms of people and food culture.

One of these things is Sarawak Laksa - notable for its incredibly complex spice base which seems to be a closely...MORE
World Street Food Rush..

I had not anticipated the response- we opened the first World Street Food Congress in Manila, Philippines last Wednesday at 4pm (the Jamboree food festival component) and by 6pm, over five thousand people flooded the little field in Bonifacio Global City, where it was held.

Try biting into these facts for starters:


The World Street Food Congress, now hawking in The Philippines

It’s such a huge event covering all 10 halls of the Singapore EXPO (plus annexes) that it can be easy to miss interesting stuff.

Master Tang is back..
I had thought that at age 82, the daily long and demanding queue (of at least 20 at any peak meal hour) would have taken a toll on him. Mr Tang Siu Nam ran his stall alone and three months after he opened to much fanfare, he shuttered up for good about 14 months ago, much to the disappointment of many fans. It is a pity, as he is the...MORE
