New + Noted: Makansutra Seefood Seeshore
This semi-alfresco food court by Makansutra at Sentosa’s Palawan Beach is where “you can see food and the shore,” so says Makansutra founder KF Seetoh. For his second food court (following Glutton’s Bay at The Esplanade), he has roped in nine hawker tenants offering a mix of old school dishes and mod interpretations of hawker faves. "Some old stalls, some new stalls. All have new dishes," he says. Only four of these nine stalls are currently open for its soft launch with the rest coming on board only in May. For now, you can check out three outposts of well-loved hawkers, like Bukit Merah's Keng Eng Kee Seafood and its famous Mingzhu Rolls ($8) — aka salted egg yolk, prawn, mushroom and ham wrapped in deep-fried tofu skin — as well as fusion numbers like the Popiah Quesadillas ($12) and Potato Prawn Grits ($15). Another noteworthy stall is 3 Stars Chicken Rice — an offshoot of Hong Kong Street Old Chun Kee — that is offering a Japanese-Singaporean Roasted Chicken Rice Onigiri ($6.50) created specially for Makansutra. Alhambra Satay sizzles up a special Prawn Satay ($15 for five skewers), while The Sweet Spot is a drinks and dessert stand which also offers breakfast items like Crispy Roti John with Chicken Curry ($6). Details on the yet-to-open five stalls remain sketchy for now.
