After the Botanic Garden, we went to Boat Quay to meet up with my friend, Mariel, and had lunch at Lau Pa Sat. Built in 1894, Telok Ayer Market or Lau Pa Sat is the largest remaining Victorian filigree cast-iron structure in Southeast Asia. It is now a large food court of sorts for workers at the Central Business District. You might recall this place from the ad by the Singapore Tourism Board showing a man infron of a table laden with food. Well, the experience cannot be quite the same as this place is pure pandemonium during lunchtime. There are also Filipino food outlets here, but that's not what we are here for now, are we?
Ice kachang, the other kapatid of our halo halo. It's not very good because of the fruit syrup. Makes it taste so fake. We do have another thing like this in the Philippines - shaved ice with fruit syrup. Halo halo still reigns supreme!
