The retail arm provides a launch pad to help local and imported food retail grow their brand presence while the dining area offers a mix of new foodpreneurs and second or third-generation food operators looking to modernise their brands.

One of the new F&B brand in this revitalised Lau Pa Sat space is Chef Kang’s Prawn Noodle House, who is a Michelin star recipient for his main restaurant. For this outlet, he has the Food Folks exclusive, Prawn Soup Ramen besides the regular bee hoon and egg noodles. When it first opened in Toa Payoh back in end 2019, there was much fanfare and crowd for a Michelin starred chef to open a hawker stall selling prawn noodles. Despite its popularity, I didn’t get a chance to try it until now and I was disappointed with it as I expected more oomph and umami, especially in the broth. It was not “prawny” at all and just by the colour itself, it looks a regular clear soup and it has the alkaline flavour in it. The saving grace was probably the huge prawns that come with it and the deep fried spare ribs by the side.
