Singapore Satays Lau Pa Sat

Singapore Street Food Old Market Singapore Street Food Old Market Lau Pa Sat is an exciting inexpensive way to dine in this very expensive city. Unless of course you are devouring a chilli crab at boat key or the East Coast Lagoon Food village, then it’s a different story.

Lau Pa Sat

Singapore Street Food Old Market Lau Pa Sat (which means Old Market) is also known as Telok Ayer in the heart of Singapore’s financial district, it has operated as a hawker centre since 1973 and is the best place in Singapore for satay sticks.

Table service at Lau Pa Sat

Singapore Street Food Old Market The best satay stalls in Singapore are found here in Boon Tat St on the south side of Lau Pa Sat, it changes to a pedestrian thoroughfare called the Asli Satay Club between 7 pm and midnight.

Octagonal building

Singapore Street Food Old Market The market building is a unique octagonal cast-iron structure which was originally shipped out from Glasgow. The original Telok Ayer market opened in 1838.

Singapore Satays Lau Pa Sat has a very busy kitchen

Singapore Street Food Old Market Obviously you have a choice at Singapore Satays Lau Pa Sat market to eat inside the building or out on the busy street. Personally I think the street is far more interesting.

Great friends Anne & Steve

Singapore Street Food Old Market For six or seven years I was so lucky that my old friends from Sydney lived in Singapore where Anne was a director of a large insurance company. They would allow to stay in their spare room at their luxury Singapore apartment. While Anne worked Steve and I would practice our lunch skills or play golf at Changi golf club near the airport or Legends golf club in Malaysia.
