From the Burpple community

This satay was from Stall 7 & 8, where they clearly lay out different sets for you to choose from. For 2 people, I went for the XS Set which offered 20 sticks - 10 sticks of chicken & 10 sticks of beef/mutton. One would have to witness for themselves the satay competition happening at Lau Pa Sat before experiencing how spoilt for choice they’d be, and then be overwhelmed from the touting by various stallholders. I went with 7 & 8, which was said to be the best amongst all the carts there.

I thought it was pretty good. At 70c a stick - well inflation has led to satay prices rising, the quality of the satay was pretty worth the money. It was a smaller stick, but it was well grilled with great flavour and char. At the same time, the sticks were on the meatier side and less fatty, which I personally preferred. More importantly, the peanut sauce was amazing! It was tasty and had the right amount of spicy kick. To me, this truly made the satay delicious.


For the smallest size of stingray, it was pretty meaty. I’d expect this tourist trap to give me a thin, skinny stingray, but I’m glad that I hit the jackpot this time and got what the price was worth. After all, I’ve had smaller stingrays for heftier prices. So, I was pleased with the portion presented. However, the flavour of the chilli on the stingray itself wasn’t that great. It did not have that spicy kick quintessential to a bbq stingray, on top of it lacking flavour. The belacan and the lime at the side though, did save the day. It helped to boost the flavour of the stingray and provide it with the spicy oomph as desired.


Chicken Murtabak was decent but not worth the price paid. This was bought from the Mee Goreng & Murtabak stall at the Lau Pa Sat Festival
Market, where the cart would open for people to experience dining open-air traditionally. Get ready for hardselling from this stall as well as the other zi char stalls. Not the most pleasant experience, especially when there’s a clear sign that touting is not allowed, but I guess that’s just how things work there. With all the touting and the fact that it was meant to be a tourist trap, prices of food are more expensive as well - which explains the $10 ordinary Murtabak. I must say that the curry gravy paired with it was great - light yet spicy at the same time. Served fresh and crisp, the murtabak crust was on the thinner side, which I actually appreciated. However, they were pretty stingy with the ingredients, particularly the chicken. They definitely used onions to make up most of the filling. It’s decent, and best to eat fresh & hot. But I probably would recommend going for another option for your carbs!


The modern aesthetic of this stall under Food Folks proved to be appealing, especially with the named Michelin chef behind the concept of this prawn noodle stall. A striking difference here is that the prawn noodles here are served with a side of fried pork ribs and 2 prawns on the side. The thing is, I don’t understand why. The classic prawn noodle seems to be made better with prawns - shelled or unshelled in the broth, and with spare ribs doused in its soup. While I applaud the attempt at innovation, it just didn’t work out so well for locals looking for a good ol’ prawn noodle meal. This is coupled with the fact that the prawn and pork ribs tasted nothing special. To the supposed main star of the meal - the soup. All I can say is that I’ve easily had better. It did not give a prawn sweetness or flavour I was expecting, and in fact, was pretty diluted in my opinion. While I must say that this was a decent bowl of prawn noodles that I can find in any regular Coffeeshop, I felt doubly disappointed because of the marketing of the shop and the potential it could possibly have. Also, really not your usual price point for prawn noodles in Singapore.


From Fragrance Garden stall.
This chicken rice was a waste of time & calories. The roast chicken was gross, full of bloody ligaments. It was also sliced thin and skimpy. The lemon chicken was just a whole lot of floor. Mild lemon taste. You’d do way much better with a packet of chicken rice from bus interchanges. And goodness, the exorbitant price point for this plate here.


Lau Pa Sat has been rejuvenated with a new concept called the Fook Folks, that introduced a few healthy food stalls and grocery.

Smol is one of the stall here serving healthy grain bowls that gained some news recently for their support in LGBT.

They are surprisingly an interesting startup that driven by a team of women, and I really love their food.

The kena salmon comes with all the ingredients including shiitake mushrooms, corns, french beans, 63 degree egg, rice and honey soy salmon; topped with garlic chips, sesame seeds and pickled ginger. The overall combination make the taste very exciting. $14.90
