Lau Pa Sat Festival Market is one of the best food hawker centres in Singapore. The main undercover food market serves up a great range of Asian foods. Every evening at 7pm, the adjoining Boon Tat Street is closed to traffic and an outdoor food market opens with 15 stalls serving up the best satay in Singapore.

The undercover market is housed in an old historical building which dates back to 1894. The cast-iron octagonal building was built in Glasgow Scotland and shipped out to Singapore by boat. The market was originally opened as a fish market and then in 1972 it was transformed into the food hawker centre.
There are around 50 stalls serving up a great range of Asia food including local Singaporean, Malaysian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and some great Indian food. Lau Pa Sat is open 24 hours a day. The Boon Tat Street night satay markets opens at 7pm and runs until late into the evening.
I think the best time to come to Lau Pa Sat is at 7pm when they shut down the adjoining Boon Tat Street, set up tables and chairs on the street and then 15 stalls are set up, grilling up the best satay in Singapore.
The prices are very reasonable. I got 15 sticks of satay for S$10.50 which is a bargain. I had 5 sticks of beef, 5 sticks of chicken and 5 sticks of lamb. There are also large prawn skewers available.
So if you are visiting Singapore, do your self a favour and get down to Lau Pa Sat and enjoy some of the best satay in the Boon Tat Street night markets.
Lau Pa Sat is located close to Singapore’s financial district and close to Marina Bay. You can get to Lau Pa Sat on Singapore’s MRT train system. It is a few minutes walk from either Telok Ayer or Downtown station, both on the Downtown Line. Or it is a 5 minutes walk from the Marina Bay Station on the North-South line.
