Thanks to Anthony Bourdain’s new show “The Layover” when he featured Singapore a few months back, my nerve wracking craving for Singapore food became alive and most especially when Karla said that she’ll be going to Singapore on November for a conference. I, of course, begged to come with her. Well, it was our 5th anniversary anyway. Well, going back to Bourdain’s Layover, he featured Tiong Bahru Market – one of the popular hawker centers in Singapore because of great foodie finds.

On our last day in Singapore, we decided to have brunch here. This is only 1 bus ride from Bencoolen (where our hotel is). It was a Sunday morning and we arrived at around 10 am. We went upstairs where the food court is and already saw a lot of people. I read in some blogs that it is preferred that you go there earlier rather than the usual lunch time (12:00 noon to 2:00 pm) because it’s difficult to get a table and of course the long queues.

Singapore Foodtripping 2: Lau Pa Sat Festival Market

Hainanese Chicken at Lau Pa Sat

Hainanese Chicken Rice from Whampoa Nanxiang Chicken Rice (Stall 52) @ SGD 5 – 8 (approximately PHP 150 – 200)

Lau Pa Sat Festival Market is the oldest  food court Singapore built in 1894 and I believe this has the biggest number of food stalls you can choose from. The variety is very diverse, it’s quite hard to choose what to eat! Of course there are Singaporean, Malaysian and Indian stalls there but there are also Filipino (Oh yes, there’s Tapa King there), Chinese and Italian.

Food courts or Hawker Centers are very popular in Singapore but Lau Pa Sat is the must-visit food court when you go to Singapore. Expect to spend only SGD 2.00 – 10.00 per meal and per person when you dine in Lau Pa Sat. Drinks cost less than SGD 3.00. Continue reading “Singapore Foodtripping 2: Lau Pa Sat Festival Market”
