Downtown Singapore, streetwise food festival. The best satey you can get! The best place before hit the clubs, to have fun with friends and have delicious streetfood for less sitting outside. Cash only!

While the pavilion is closed for renovations, satay street is alive and well on the street next door. Right in the Central Business District amongst the skyscrapers, at night a regular street closes down, tons of tables and plastic chairs come out, and street vendors cook fabulous satay in roadside stands. The beef, prawns, and chicken satay were out of... More

We found the idea of eating on the street in the middle of a business area quite interesting. But the food definitely does not disappoint either. When we got off the cab, we were immediately shown menus by a waiter and it seems every single server will try to persuade you to eat at their stall (but not to the... More

The satay stands are still open every night from 7pm till late. Great atmosphere for everyone, we take work colleagues, family members and groups of friends. The best satay stand is number 8, we've tried them all. Their's have the best flavours and the prawns are shelled for you, a really friendly family run stand.

Lau Pa Sat (Old Market) is closed for renovations and there are no clear indications on when it will open. This place is opened and priced for tourists. Suggest other food centres nearby like Maxwell (Take to Chinatown train station), Newton Circus (Newton MRT) or Old Airport Road Food Centre (Dakota MRT). If you're an adventurous tourists, head to the... More

They don't call it the "Festival Pavillion" for nothing! The hawker center has a very festive feel around it. It was well-lighted and very easy to locate (it's a block away from Raffles station). During lunch and dinner time, the place fills up pretty quickly but since it's very spacey and has lots of seats and tables it's pretty easy... More

LPS is still closed for renovations with no indication of when it will reopen. The saving grace is that every night at 7 pm (3 pm on weekends) Boon Tat next to LPS is blocked off and about a dozen satay vendors set up their stalls with tables in the street. It's a great place to sample as much satay... More

Unfortunately Lau Pa Sat was being refurbished on our visit. The feel from the stall holders and taxi drivers was that the landlords were pushing the rent up way to much making it difficult for the vendors. Its a shame as we have found it a good place for larger groups or families to go mingle have a feed and... More
