Makansutra Gluttons Bay: Singapore Hawker Food

Prior to this recent visit, we've never tried the hawker food in Singapore. I don't know. We just didn't know where to go I guess.

During our past Singapore trips, we always go to a mall's food court whenever we want to eat hawker style Singapore food.

This recent travel however brought us to Makansutra Gluttons Bay courtesy of my husband's college friends who are based in Singapore.

Makansutra Gluttons Bay is located at the back of Esplanade. It is a group of stalls serving authentic local dishes. You'll find Satay, Hainanese chicken rice, BBQ chicken wings, seafood in chili, etc. They have 1 Filipino stall that serves sisig, and other Filipino fare. I guess this is a reflection of the number of Filipinos in the country.

That's just some of the food we ordered. We also had pakchoy in oysters sauce, pork sisig, grilled and stingray. It's my first time to eat the crunchy squid. I love it. It's sautéed but it has retained its crunchiness. Perfect!

What I like about Makansutra Gluttons Bay is, it's in the middle of so many attractions in Singapore. There's the Esplanade, Merlion Park and of course the view of the Marina Bay Sands.

After our dinner, we just sat at the bay area while catching up with each others lives. At 8pm, the Marina Bay Sands Laser show started, to our surprise and delight.
