Newly Re-opened Lau Pa Sat On A Saturday

As Lau Pa Sat was re-opened and I have went down a few times during weekdays and I found many new stalls and all were very exciting so I thought of bringing my Mom there on a Saturday for lunch. I anticipated that it will be pretty crowded as well but it turned out otherwise. The vibrant, the energy and the crowd did not exist but I only found a listless environment. In fact, it was very much of a disappointment as many stores were closed. I wanted to try the Japanese Yakitori & Teppan Azmaya but was not operating on the Saturday. Even those opened did not have most of the food items that were on the menu available.

After walking one round, my Mom preferred to have some local delight from Seng Kee Local Delights. She couldn’t decide whether to have the black or white carrot and it was great that they offered a combo. The combo comes only in one size, large.

My mom was pretty satisfied with her carrot cakes. She got to enjoy both. We find that the carrot cake having a nice radish sweetish fragrance, especially from the white one, while the black one has enough sweet sauce and was neither too sweet or salty. We enjoyed the carrot cakes.

Since the Japanese Yakitori and Amazaya Teppan was not available, I went for my second choice; the Turkish Cuisine.

I was keen to try either their feta bread or the Samsun Pide but both were not available on the weekend. Choices were very limited, only the Doner Kebab was available. I settled for the only available option.

I managed to take a photo of the chef in action.

The Doner Kebab was bland. The chicken was not flavourful, no taste of spice but mainly the natural chicken taste. It was a far cry from those I have tried in Dubai. They added sauces to the roll, unfortunately, it did not enhance the dish. In short, it was disappointing.

My conclusion, for anyone who wants to try out the food at Lau Pa Sat should as much as possible avoid weekends, unless that’s not possible or till the situation improved. On weekdays, avoid any between 12 pm and 1.30 pm, unless you don’t mind joining the lunch time crowd.

  1. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.

    I think that you ought to publish more about this
    issue, it may not be a taboo matter but usually folks don’t speak about
    such subjects. To the next! Kind regards!!
