6 October

To most, Taiwan is known as the land of night markets, deep-fried goodies and shopping districts. Boasting such a vast selection of edible delights to feast on, it’s definitely hard to cope with the nagging cravings.

Should you find yourself missing any one of their iconic street snacks, here’s a list of 10 places in Singapore to indulge in Taiwanese street food. From the classic lu rou fan, crispy Taiwanese fried chicken to a slew of Taiwanese dessert and milk tea delights, you can just as easily satisfy your cravings here in Singapore without having to book an air ticket. 

5 Little Bears Lu Rou Fan


Conveniently located in the basement of Paya Lebar Square is 5 Little Bears, serving up classic Taiwanese street food such as Lu Rou Fan and fried chicken for less than S$10. The lantern decorations have menu items written on them for you to choose from before ordering, but as the shop size is rather small, the seats are filled up rather easily.
