Super Makan Asia is a new restaurant that recently opened in the Star Vista Mall in Buona Vista. It is a modest restaurant that serves local Singapore food. Super Makan Asia is located on the ground floor and takes over the space formerly occupied by an Italian restaurant.
There is an indoor air-conditioned dining area and an outdoor space which was understandably deserted because the haze was still going strong. The decor of the restaurant is kept simple. This is a no frills, quasi self-service restaurant. Order and pay at the counter and the food gets served to you.
Super Makan Asia serves local favourite food like nasi lemak, mee siam and mee goreng. They also have a section featuring chicken dishes. Here is a copy of their menu.
We ordered a punggol seafood mee goreng ($4.90) and a curry curry chicky ($6.90). A can of Fanta grape with ice costs $1.60.
The curry chicken was served in a generous portion. A huge curry chicken drumstick, a fried egg, some pieces of potatoes and rice. It was a very decent chicken curry and we would be happy to recommend this dish.
The Punggol mee goreng takes its name from the famous mee goreng served at Punggol point in the seventies. The mee goreng was fried with some stock so that it was not dry. Sufficient seafood was used to impart a seafood flavour to the noodles. We actually thought the flavour was very good but it was a bit too salty for our liking. But overall it was not bad.
All in all, Super Makan Asia provides another option of eating reasonably priced local food in a restaurant setting. The furnishing of the restaurant is very basic and is not much different from a food court except you do get some service and your own table space. By the way, we think the food court at Star Vista is one of the nicer food courts in Singapore and we have listed it in our story on the TOP food courts in Singapore.
