Lau Pa Sat
Lau Pa Sat is an Hokkien name and means old market, which is very accurate as this Hawker Centre dates back over 150 years. It was Singapore's first wet and fish market and transformed into a famous food heaven over the years.
The octagonal-shaped market saw the arrival of Chinese and Indian migrants, survived the Japanese attacks and Singapore gain independence. Founded by Sir Stamford Raffles, it is now a national monument and important landmark popular with tourists and local alike.
These days, Lau Pa Sat attracts the business crowd from the Central Business District during lunch times but is equally busy in the evenings when the nearby side street closes to give space for the Satay BBQ grillers filling the air with a delicious scent.
Below is a list of the most popular stalls at this hawker center with their unit number. You might encounter waiting times for up to 30 minutes during lunch and dinner times, as Singaporeans don't mind queuing for their favourite food.
