Lau Pa Sat may be one of the oldest food halls in Singapore but it sure knows how to keep itself fresh and with the times. And as Singapore leaves the pandemic behind (finger crossed), it is “CelebrATE-ing” with new stalls, weekend carnival games, over $5,000 worth of prizes to be won and more.
24 New Stalls at Lau Pa Sat
Among the 80-plus food stalls at Lau Pa Sat, there have been 24 new additions. These offer cuisines from countries like Thailand and Hong Kong to local favourites.
During a recent media tasting, we had the chance to sample some of the stalls at Lau Pa Sat.
Among the standout dishes to us were Mr Tom Yum Thai Kitchen’s Seafood Tom Yum Soup. It was intensely flavourful with an aromatic freshness. Like any good tom yum soup, it left us wanting to scoop up the spoon of spicy goodness.
Sing HK Kitchen’s Signature Scramble Egg with Pork Chop Rice was also absolutely delicious. It was a perfect marriage of omu-style egg with savoury Hong Kong-style pork chop.
Wok of Wonders’ Moonlight Hor Fun looked aesthetically-pleasing and the runny egg added a creamy flavour to the rich, dark hor fun dish.
While the Golden Shoe Food Centre has been replaced with CapitaSpring, you can find the Golden Shoe Hokkien Mee stall at Lau Pa Sat. This lusciously wet plate of Hokkien noodles comes with a heap of tempting fried lard and a healthy dollop of essential blachan.
New Brands at Food Folks
Food Folks, the retail concept at Lau Pa Sat has also added 18 new local brands to its shelves. This bring the total number of local brands under its umbrella to 87. New to Food Folks are brands like The Mind Cafe, Haflong Tea and Aboocha.
Exclusive items available at Food Folks include Lychee Dragon Fruit Dark Chocolate, Pineapple Tart Caramelised Chocolate and Food Folks Lemongrass Pale Lager. It is worth a browse through while visiting Lau Pa Sat.
