Makansutra Gluttons Bay – Tantalize your Tastebuds with Authentic Singaporean Dishes

It is no secret that sampling the local cuisine when visiting new places, cities and countries is an integral aspect of travel. For those visiting the city state of Singapore in South East Asia, native cuisine is an intriguing and complex amalgamation of many influences. Due to the location of the country and its historic ties with a number of neighbouring states, Singaporean cuisine is heavily influenced by Indonesia, Indian and Chinese cuisine in addition to the local Malay cuisine.

One method of sampling the local food is to enquire whether your hotel can prepare special Singaporean dishes. Hotels such as the Sheraton Towers Singapore will be more than happy to comply with such requests and one can be assured that the meals are of the highest quality. However, it is difficult to deny that the best way to experience the Singaporean cuisine is to step outside and make one’s way to a hawker stall. Since some of the best shopping in Singapore can be done down Orchard Street, one can complete their evening with an authentic Singaporean meal at a number of nearby hawker stalls. Since the Singapore Food Festival is organized in July, tourists visiting at this time will have the wonderful opportunity to sample an array of dishes with ease and convenience.

For those who wish to enjoy authentic meals in the comfort of a restaurant, the Makansutra Gluttons Bay is an excellent option. Offering a marvellous view of Marina Bay, this restaurant allows diners a great degree of choice: one can choose from the famous Singaporean Chill Crab or Oyster Omelettes as well as Fried Carrot Cake and Roti Jala.

Widely acknowledged as being an excellent place to frequent after sunset, Makansutra Gluttons Bay distinguishes themselves in terms of the quality and taste of their meals as well as achieving authenticity.
