When does a trip to Singapore, we often need a cheap place to eat-rousing? Depending on where you are “roaming”, usually there is always a food court or hawker center that fits your needs. When they are around Telok Ayer, the choice is Lau Pa Sat.
Lau Pa Sat is one successful example of the Government of Singapore to the preservation of heritage buildings. Formerly, Lau Pa Sat is Telok Ayer Market which has a long history. This market is starting to develop in the Raffles, later became an important market fish. In the subsequent period, the area around Telok Ayer developed into Singapore’s financial center. Magnificent buildings and graceful in the vicinity is a large reputable banks of the world.
The building is structurally sound markets cast iron imported from Glasgow, UK. Victorian-style architecture unique Japanese bomb survivors when held in Singapore in 1942. This building had cracked due to the excavation of underground MRT station, and because it was torn down and then reassembled into a building that is now proud of. This is one of the few buildings of gagrak iron structure that remains intact Victorian architecture in the world.
One of the signature dishes Lau Pa Sat is the satay. However, this also makes many people reluctant to actually come to this place because it was too smoky so many satay sellers. The satay seller comes at night when Boon Obey Street just behind the Lau Pa Sat is closed to motor vehicles. In this way, at least ten sellers in this market skewers: chicken satay, satay prawns, seafood skewers, chicken wings, and others. If you are a fan of satay, do not miss the Fatman Satay outlets.
Satay is mostly sold here is satay gagrak Malaysia – even the owner of most of the Chinese outlets – ie satay with peanut sauce sweet nuances, and served with red onion slices are large. Do not message when ordered satay rice.
In the Lau Pa Sat festival market there are many other dining options. The price is between S $ 2.50 to 6.50 (about USD 15-40 thousand). In addition, there are several outlets that offer Indian cuisine (including vegetarian), Japanese, Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese.
For snacks, there’s dim sum, yong tau and popiah (spring rolls soaked with different kind of content to choose your own). If you are a fan of seafood, stores that I recommend are Yong Kee Seafood Barbeque. Lau Pa Sat is one of the appropriate addresses in Singapore for foodie’s culinary alias hunters.
