As Singapore eases its Covid-19 safety measures, the iconic Lau Pa Sat welcomes patrons back with a rejuvenated food hall boasting 24 new stalls. It’s also holding a food-themed carnival happening between Friday evenings and Sundays from now till Oct 2.

The new food stalls dish up a variety of cuisines from local delights such as beef hor fun by Wok of Wonders and prawn noodles from Golden Shoe Hokkien Mee to international dishes such as Sing HK Kitchen’s scrambled egg fried rice and Mr Tom Yum Thai Kitchen’s tom yum soup. 

If you’re looking for a spot to unwind with your friends, Archipelago Brewery is serving up local craft beers at Lau Pa Sat, alongside offerings from other Singapore breweries and global craft beer brands. 

Formerly known as Telok Ayer Market, Lau Pa Sat’s history dates back to the 19th century. It has since held court as a landmark in Singapore’s bustling financial district and was gazetted as a national monument in 1973.

At the carnival, dubbed CelebrATE@Lau Pa Sat, you can look forward to everything from lucky draws to photo spots to carnival games — a crowd favourite. The carnival runs from now till Oct 2, from 6pm to 10pm on Fridays, and 12pm to 8pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

The photo spots in the food hall will be inspired by all things food. If you upload your snaps and hashtag #LauPaSatCelebrATE, you might just get featured on its social media platforms

Elsewhere, games such as Chopsticks Power and Seafood Fishing will offer you a chance to bag prizes. To take part, you’ll need game tokens. Aside from buying them, you can get them from Lau Pa Sat’s CelebrATE booklet. All you have to do is spend at least S$10 across up to two receipts and redeem the booklet at Food Folks, an F&B and retail space at the hawker centre. 

If you don’t have much luck with the carnival games, the booklet also contains a lucky draw ticket that will give you a chance to win a staycation or a Kopitiam card with S$50 in credits. 

While there, check out the offerings at Food Folks. It has close to 90 Singapore brands, among them noteworthy names such as Irvins, The 1925 Brewing Co, Brewerkz, Fossa Chocolate, and Hook Coffee. 

For visitors who wish to carry a taste of Singapore back home, this might be the perfect place.
