A ‘Purpose-Driven Retail’ space focusing on supporting home-grown food brands.
Food Folks @ Lau Pa Sat is Singapore’s first locally-focused “Everything Food” concept that blends food retail products and F&B establishments within a gazetted monument.
Food Folks @ Lau Pa Sat provides a launchpad to help local food retail and F&B brands grow and establish their brand presence. The space has been thoughtfully designed to inspire the community with positive and meaningful experiences around the love of all things food.
70% of over 120 retail brands available are home-grown. Many of the F&B stalls are actively managed by local foodpreneurs as well as founders, with Mod-Sin inspired menus! You can enjoy delicious meals from 10 F&B brands run by a mix of relatively new foodpreneurs and second or third-generation owners who are modernising their brands. These partners have developed Mod-Sin inspired dishes exclusive to Food Folks.
The 10 F&B brands offer a diverse food selection, with the following dishes exclusive to Food Folks: the Ultimate Plant-based Combo Rice by four-year consecutive Michelin Bib Gourmand recipient and heritage brand Shi Hui Yuan; and the Prawn Soup Ramen by Michelin-starred Chef Kang. For dessert lovers, Creme and Cone’s first permanent gelateria offers freshly made Waffle Cones and Waffle Lollies, as well as new artisanal gelato flavours Java Banana Chips and Thai Milk Tea. Those craving for hearty and nutritious food may opt for Gua Zai Q Tofu Bento at QQ Rice or S’tay The Night, a vegan grain bowl with jackfruit satay at SMOL.
1. Chef Kang’s Prawn Noodle House
Chef Kang has more than 40 years of culinary experience and a Michelin star under his belt. Choose between Prawn Noodle Soup (Spare Ribs) or Prawn Soup Ramen – but grab them early as the stall will only be selling a few hundred bowls daily for both dishes, whilst stocks last.

This will be the brand’s first and flagship gelateria! A new concept from the folks at Butter Studio. Check out localised flavour creations like Java B’nana Chip, Ondeh Ondeh and Pulut Hitam; each treat is handcrafted with no artificial flavourings, and is low in fat and sugar yet creamy and delicious.
