Back to hanging out at the hawker center for at least one of our weekend meal.
Today’s lunch of choice was the Peranakan Dish: Laksa

Lau Pa Sat (Chinese: 老巴刹; pinyin: Lǎo Bāshā) means “old market” in the vernacular Chinese of Singapore. Lau (老) means old; pa sat is the Hokkien pronunciation of the Persian loanword bazaar (market) which is pasar in Malay.
Lau Pa Sat’s unique, octagonal, cast-iron structure was designed by James MacRitchie. The cast-iron structures were crafted by Walter MacFarlane & Company, an iron foundry in Glasgow, Scotland.
