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
Keng Eng Kee: And now, Cze Cha Burgers
While I am a keen preserver of the old flavours and the old ways, which gives us our international culinary reputation (say what you will, they still come for chicken rice and chilli crabs), I also keep a “third eye” for new creations based on old ideas.

Hey Handsome

Plus the fact that the Filipino owners and chefs are all specialising in Singapor-esque chow and many have not been to this little red dot of ours. I am a believer of change but only if you have a respect and...MORE
Hong Kong Mongkok Tim Sum: This Dim Sum gets my vote anytime
When I took a bite of this har kow and the “smiling” cha siew pao (done with a soft and porous pao skin) I was immediately reminded of how my Culinary Institute of America guest Ms Mai Pham and her husband , Greg Drescher, the VP of Strategic Initiatives and Industry Leadership, behaved at the East Ocean Restaurant here a few years back. They so loved the steamed paos and...MORE
Great Finds in Makansutra Edition 2017
It’s been almost 20 years since our first edition of Makansutra hit the streets back in 1998. It should seem like a breeze to put out a new edition each time, but, in reality, it is getting harder. It’s not about the challenge we face from online guides and blogs but rather, the ability to keep that sense of wonderment intact. It is not easy to find good eateries anymore....MORE
