Food Tour to Lau Pa Sat 

Pa Sat, or pasar (“market” in Malay), also known as hawker centre or food court, is the first choice if you want to have good local foods at reasonable prices in Singapore. There are hundreds of hawker centres with thousands of food stalls all over the island, where you can find an incredible variety of local dishes, such as Chicken rice, Fried Kway Teow, Hokkien Mee, Bak Kut Teh, Satay, Laksa, Biriyani, as well as vegetarian Yong Tau Fu.

Located in the heart of financial district, Lau Pa Sat, a true Singapore landmark, was gazetted as a national monument in 1973 for its distinctive design and old history. Harbouring more than 80 food stalls, it is perennially crowded, especially after 7pm, when the satay vendors sets up stalls outside on the street. Other than satay, laksa, chicken rice, you can also find meals from Vietnam, Japan, India and many other countries. Here are some recommended stalls by online bloggers.

We are happy to organise a food tour to Lau Pa Sat for those who are keen. It will be on 18th April (Tues) when all sessions end, probably around 6pm. We will travel from Buona Vista MRT station (EW21) to Raffles Place (EW14) by train. Be ready for the huge crowd since it’s peak hour. But also get ready for great food!
