When you plan for your visit in Singapore, Lau Pa Sat will definitely have to be on your list. Whether it is your first time or not, you will end up returning again to this festive food heaven because it is simply mind-blowing. Lau Pa Sat is a large food market that is located near Telok Ayer MRT station. Literally after a 4 minute walk, you will be greeted by a glooming set of lights that brightens up the vibe for what seems to look like an old building. When you enter though, you will be amazed (I was beyond amazed) by the number of food stalls that are in the area. I haven't counted properly but you can see at least 40-50 within the entire food market!
As you enter, i was greeted by a few stall staff members who try to drag you in to their stalls. We were then captured by one guy holding a menu with photos of stay skewers everywhere and we could not resist by try it out.
Their dedicated seating area was outdoors, and also had a full section of seating for smoking out on the blocked road. Non-smoking seating was available closer to the side of the food market. We ordered the "small" size dish of chicken, duck, beef and goat skewers, which came with a satay dipping sauce. When the dish arrived, we thought it was delivered to the wrong table because it was a huge plate - but no. It was the small size. I could not believe how you could ave around 40-50 skewers and call it a small dish, but that was fine because we were really hungry after a long day!
It was undoubtably the best satay ive ever had (and i say this though I don't eat much satay) but it gets you that feeling because you are having a feast of a plate in the centre of the Singapore vibe of Lau Pa Sat. It's just a superb experience. The platter was $42.00 and is great for sharing with 2-3 people. Of course, the stall has many other platter menus to choose from so you won't get bored of coming back once a week or so. The stall is also conveniently located right beside the drinks stall so you can easily grab a drink with your meal.
I say this too many times, but if you do visit Singapore, you really cannot miss Lau Pa Sat!
