Makansutra Asian Food Village

Makansutra Asian Food Village

Makansutra Asian Food Village is located at the 2nd floor Manila Ocean Park at the back of Quirino Grand Stand in Luneta. Receiving good feed back from our friends, me and my beloved have decided to dine at Makansutra for our first anniversary celebration. The ambiance is great and it was a different dining experience compared to our usual fast food dining. There are many food stalls and food choices from different Asian countries but we have decided to order Grilled Chicken in Barbecue Sauce, Nasi Lemak, Chen Tng and some fried noodles that looks like pancit canton (sorry if I forgot the dish name).

Here are some short background about Nasi Lemak and Chen Tng:

Nasi Lemak is considered to be the national dish in Malaysia but it is also sold in other Southeast Asian countries like Singapore and Thailand. It is served in a platter with rice, sliced cucumbers, roasted peanuts, hard boiled egg, small fired anchovies (dilis) and chicken wings with spicy sauce. It is traditionally sold wrapped in banana leaves.

Nasi Lemak 

Chen Tng is a recipe that originates in China. The main ingredients for this dessert are longans, lotus seeds, bargley, ginkgo nuts, gelatine sheets and tai hoi lam.
