Not only this place has got some of the finest samples of local, asian and world cuisine in a form of the street market. at night this place transforms into an open market with tables placed on the closed road: the view from those tables is surreal: glass and concrete skyscrapers next to almost 'primitive' food stalls. A bit of... More

This hawkers centre was opposite our hotel we were staying at so we tended to opt for here rather than pay hotel prices for food. The variety and diversity of food was amazing and the setting was unbelievably clean. It is quite wonderful at night as they close off the road and set-up tables so you can eat under the... More

I was introduced to Satay when first serving in Malaya with the RAE in 1967. My enthusiasm has not lagged at all and when in the vicinity of Indonesia, Singapore or Malaysia I am always on the hunt for good Satay. For many years now when passing through Singapore I always head for Lau Pa Pat Festival Pavilion and go... More

This is the first hawker food center in Singapore. It was built in 1894 and it looks very Victorian…absolutely beautiful. Location of it is strange because it is kind of stuck in the middle of business district. Great variety of food, we had black pepper crab and stingray (very spicy). It looks very pretty at night.

Our hotel receptionist recommended this place, where they close off the street at night and it turns into Satay Street. We had barbecued chicken, lamb and shrimp satay with fried rice and bok choi and onion greens. To be fair, the barbecued dishes were very good, the shrimp (langoustines?) were enormous and probably the best I've ever had. Sadly you... More

Although the food was pretty good it wasn't worth the price. This is a hawker area geared toward tourist. My advise is to ask a taxi driver or hotel receptionist which hawker stand they prefer. There are over 40,000 stands in Singapore and they all get inspected and their grades for cleanliness is displayed in the front of thier stall.... More

Without trying hawker food, you couldn't really claim you have experienced Singapore. This is a very known and famous for hawker food. Vast selection of choices from Malaysian to Thai and from European and Indian. All sorts Buzzing night and day

On our previous trips to Singapore, we failed to go to Lau Pa Sat and we would not be denied this time. Planned to go for dinner to experience the stalls offering satay on the street but had to visit for lunch instead due to time constraint. My daughter, who is a conservation architect, loved the structure with its beautiful... More
