The itinerant hawkers plying push-carts of yesteryear were once a common sight at the Lau Pa Sat Festival Market, but they’ve long been replaced with a permanent food centre offering a choice of breezy, alfresco dining, or clean, air-conditioned space. However, the Lau Pa Sat Festival Market still retains its old world charm, with traditional satay vendors setting up stalls outside.
The signature chilli crab and steamed cockles with a spicy dark sauce rarely fails to impress, while other local favourites such as fried hokkien mee and chicken rice are still highly sought-after, even after so many years.
Treat your family and friends to a big dinner, and be surrounded by people who share a common passion for food. Lau Pa Sat is a one-stop food centre that you simply can’t afford to miss.
Lau Pa Sat will be closed for renovation from 1 September 2013 and expected to open by December 2013.
