Makansutra 21st Anniversary Party @ Gluttons Bay at The Esplanade Singapore

Makansutera 21st Anniversary Party @ Gluttons Bay at The Esplanade Singapore

Thank you Makan Guru KF Seetoh for the privilege to celebrate the 21st Anniversary of Makansutra at Gluttons Bay with you, Patricia, your team and friends. I bought your food guides and went on your food tours in the 1990s, tasted many good food stalls you recommended, inspired by many astute insights you shared but never expected to be part of Makansutra's 21st birthday bash 😄

I look forward to and wish Makansutra many more deliciously good years, because I love food lah and cannot imagine a Singapore street food scene without the straight talking voice of hawker champion KF Seetoh 😄

I wish all twelve stalls at the newly renovated Gluttons Bay more success and more great food (for us all 😋 ). Huat Ah!

Woh woh woh, this looks yummaey.

The person rubbing his hands in glee is Guest of Honour S. Iswaran, Minister for Communications and Information. He was checking out the twelve stalls including six new ones.

We were entertained by Douglas O who performed many classics like "Every breath you take" and lots more.

Many of us in the crowd are Douglas Olivero fans including Peter Yeoh, ardent foodie, Chowhound, Hungry Onion and Malaysian Food Whisperer. He flew in from Penang just to attend the celebrations 👏👏👏

Happy 21st Makansutra! Continue to champion our hawkers and street food tradition. We must never let our unique food heritage go out of style because it is about who we are as Singaporeans.

If you are looking for Halal Hainanese chicken rice, get it at Danny's Matahari stall at Gluttons Bay. The poached chicken was tender and juicy with natural chicky sweetness 👍 Ho chiak! (Delicious.)

This big pau cannot eat but gives us the essential nourishment for balanced thinking minds. Multi talented Colin Goh was the man behind the pioneer Singapore satire site TalkingCock.com - he is now into children's books and theatre.

Putting my best foot forward 😛 I tried to emulate this OOTD pose which I saw a lot on Instagram but I cannot..... I just cannot make it 😂

After the sumptuous celebratory dinner, we took a walk around the Esplanade. Buddy photography guru Wilson Wong gave me a few tips on night shooting with a handphone.



Hearty Congratulations! Makansutra 21! Onward to greater heights for Makansutra and a brighter future for Singapore hawker food!
