Originally built as a wet market in the 19th century, Lau Pa Sat has been converted into a hawker centre where both local and Asian foods are sold. Located at Singapore’s Central Business District, Lau Pa Sat is always busy with the crowds of office workers at lunchtime. At night, a satay street is rapidly set up at the outdoor area of the food market, adding more bustle to the place.

What people like

  • The satay street of Singapore with more than 10 satay stalls: Lau Pa Sat satay street, an outdoor dining area belonging to Lau Pa Sat Festival Market, is the only satay street in Singapore. It only wakes up after dark, from 19:00 onwards, and lives energetically until the leave of the last diners. Its satay stalls provide diners with skewers of chicken, lamb, beef and pork from Chinese to Muslim style. Among those, stalls # 7, # 8 and # 10 are the standouts.

  • Lively street dining experience: As the city lights up, bustling atmosphere is started with swift setups of folding tables, plastic chairs and the starting of charcoal fires. The barbecue smoke carrying the irresistible aroma of the satay reveals the readiness of Singapore style barbeque party. Enthusiastic crowds will quickly fill up the place to make this night spot one of the Singapore’s most exciting street dining places to savor the best satay with cold beer.
