Let’s talk about food! đŸ™‚

Last week for our Valentine’s date, we dined at Makan Makan Asian Food Village. Formerly known as Makan Sutra.

(click photo for more details)

“The restaurant embodies the main cultures of Singapore through its diverse cuisines—Chinese, Indian, Thai, Malay, Filipino and even Western. “Makan” is a Bahasa Indonesian term for eating.”


The place is big, with many tables, chairs and couches but just enough that it does not look very crowded when full. The see-through kitchen is in the middle of the room so you can see what’s cooking. There’s also a guitarist/singer who serenaded us while we dined.

We sat at the side by the glass wall, near the singer, and with a nice view of the sunset at Manila Bay. So romantic! đŸ™‚


I would like to commend how great their service was! The waiters were very friendly and accommodating. They are keen to their customers’ needs and they always serve with a smile.


To briefly summarize, the food was great! đŸ™‚ We waited for about 15-25 minutes until all our orders were served.

Here were our orders!

Sautéed Dry Beef Hofan

SautĂ©ed Dry Beef Hofan (150php) – Juicy thinly sliced beef with sticky rice noodles. It has the perfect blend of flavors with just the right amount of sweetness.

Chicken Pandan

Chicken Pandan (250php) – Yummy chicken wrapped in fragrant Pandan leaves.

Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak (160php) – Coconut rice with a medley of fried chicken, atchara dilis and potato pattie. The rice and potato pattie tasted great!

Beef (L) and Chicken (R) Satay

Beef Satay 5 pcs. (180php) and Chicken Satay 5 pcs. (150php) – A little smaller than I expected but it was good! The chicken goes best with the special peanut sauce!

For drinks, we ordered:

Lemon Barley

Lemon Barley (50php) – Lemon juice with bits of sweet barley. I don’t know what barley really tastes like but here it was a little sweet. It’s soft with a hard center so you have to bite it a little.

Bandung Chinchow

Bandung Chinchow  (95php) – Rose essence juice with black gulaman. A must try!

And finally for dessert…

Ice Kachang with Mango Pudding

Ice Kachang with Mango Pudding (90php) – Or in layman’s term – Singapore halo-halo! This halo-halo has different colored gelatin with Monggo beans and coconut in a perfect mix of ice, sugar and milk, topped with a big jelly mango pudding!

Food: 5/5

Price: 5/5

We had a great time we stayed there for 2 hours. đŸ˜€
