Lau Pa Sat

Hawker in Chinatown & the CBD

Lau Pa Sat means 'Old Market' in Hokkien, which is appropriate since the handsome iron structure shipped out from Glasgow in 1894 remains intact. It's a favourite spot for CBD workers, who flock here for hawker favourites like fishball noodles and chicken rice. Come evening, the facing street (Boon Tat St) transforms into the famous eating spot Satay Street.
