Lau Pa Sat in Singapore

Lau Pa Sat is a food center within the Central Business District that offers a wide variety of affordable local food. Interestingly, it is the largest remaining Victorian filigree cast-iron structure in Southeast Asia. “Lau Pa Sat” means old market in the Hokkien dialect. This structure has been around for more than 150 years, starting out initially as a wet market. It is now a gourmet paradise and a national monument since 1973.

This joint is packed with office workers during the rush lunch hours from around noon till 2 pm. However, with the huge seating capacity of the food center, you should not have to wait long before getting a seat. While the stalls here are “hawker”-like, we have come a long way from the traditional hawker who plied his trade on foot or behind push-carts. While the setting might have changed, the food certainly has not. Singaporeans’ obsession with the street food of huge varieties of different cultures has translated to there being countless stalls selling anything from small snacks and main courses to desserts and alfresco satays (grilled or barbecued meat on skewers).

Be it breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper or simply an in-between meal, a visit to the Lau Pa Sat will definitely settle your cravings.
