Singapore’s Makansutra Hawkers to open in Manila next month

Missed the World Street Food Congress? Soon it'll be here to stay!

( It was only in April 2016 when the Philippines hosted the World Street Food Congress in Bonifacio Global City for the first time, drawing a crowd of over 73,000 in a five-day event where they could sample some of the best street food from 10 different countries. If you missed it (or you miss it), here's something to celebrate: Singapore-based Makansutra (S) Pte Ltd, the company behind the successful congress, is marking their second milestone for 2016 by opening a world street food market, Makansutra Hawkers, at SM Megamall on September 8!

Makansutra will feature twelve hawker stations that will serve a wide range of international street fare including Teochew Kway Chap and Braised Duck, rice noodles with pig offal and braised duck, and Bak Kut Teh or pork rib broth cooked with sugar cane, both of which will be making their debut in Manila’s food scene. Four stalls which drew long lines at the World Street Food Congress will also be part of Makansutra Hawkers:  Singapore’s Alhambra Padang Satay, famous for their rare Satay Bee Hoon; Hong Kong Street Old Chun Kee, which will cook up Cantonese-style stir-fry and Ha Cheong Kai (bagoong chicken); Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck and Kway Chap; and Malaysia’s Donald & Lily which serves Nyonya Mee Siam and Laksa.

The dishes will range from P100 to market rates for seasonal seafood, but most one-meal dishes will be affordable at P200. Makansutra will be able to accommodate up to 500 people, with two cozy alcoves for private dining events. Even with that seating capacity, we bet the lines will be crazy anyway!
