Going to Lau Pa Sat on a Sunday evening can be a quite annoying experience, depending on your mood and depending how often you get approached by food touts. As I was telling Daphne, it's almost like Bangkok again, only this time it was slightly better because it was for food and not watch what a Thai girl could do with a table tennis bat.
We realised that many of the stalls within the enclosed area of Lau Pa Sat were closed, and it was only slightly over nine in the evening then. Of course, Daphne wanted some satay, so we headed out for some, waving off touts like flies as we went. I've never told so many lies at one go.
Chicken and Beef Satay: 7.4/10
These satay come from a stall named, "Best Satay". Well, it wasn't too bad, the marinate was quite good. Gone are the days of 35-40cents a stick though. These cost 60cents a stick.
Yang Zhou Fried Rice: 6.3/10
I have no idea from which stall this fried rice was ordered from. Some guy just came to our table and I ordered. The fried rice went very well with the sambal chilli, but it was a bit too oily for my liking.
BBQ Chicken Wings: 7/10
Too sweet, tastes too much of the honey marinate! Chicken is quite fresh and juicy though, so that's a plus point. I think there's only one stall that was selling chicken wings that night, it's located at the far end of the lane.
Cheng Tng: 7/10
We both had one each as a drink. I read somemore in the Mind Your Body section of the Straits Times that this is one of the healthier desserts or snacks that you can take if you're hungry. Sweet and pretty refreshing if you ask me.
Too much touting. What we did was wave everyone off, then sat on one table in the middle of nowhere, and let the fastest man win. Haha.
60cents for a stick of satay
$1 for "ketupat" rice to go with the satay
$4 for the fried rice
$1.30 for the chicken wing
$1.40 for the cheng tng

While the satay is naturally "Halal" because it's sold by Malays (in Singapore, the common practice is to relate race to religion and vice versa, and this is especially so in the case of Malays and Islam), the fried rice and other seafood type of dishes offered are not "Halal", though they have been declared as "no pork, no lard".
