Afte eight months of closed shutters, several delays and a $4-million facelift, the iconic food centre opened for business to hungry crowds on 30 June 2014. Nearly 80 per cent of its stalls are up and ready and these include a few old favourites but several new concepts. Expect fewer food stalls (54, down from 90) but more space and better ventilation for a capacity 2,500 diners (460 more than before). We took a walk around the shiny new Lau Pa Sat and photographed a few stalls that caught our eyes.

Auntie Carole's Prawn Noodle Soup | While prawn noodle soup is this stall's main offerring, it also sells bite-sized confections such as ang ku kueh (glutinous rice cakes with mung bean or peanut fillings) and savoury ngoh hiang (five-spiced pork rolls, $1 each). Perfect for an evening or mid-morning snack.
