Filipino Food in Lau Pa Sat: Mack’s, Happy V (formerly Jolly V), Panyeros and Mang Kiko’s Lechon

Lau Pa Sat, almost everyone in Singapore knows about it, so going to the place is not that difficult. Of all the food stalls there, four (4) serves Filipino Cuisine.

Mack’s Chicken Inasal

*****Sad to say, Mack’s is now closed*****


Happy V Fried Chicken (formerly know as Jolly V)

And Mang Kiko’s Lechon

Although they all cater to the Filipinos working and visiting Singapore, the food on their menu does not compete with one another.

You will also often see foreigners ordering from them, especially at Happy V.

Since basically Lau Pa Sat is a food court, we can assume that the experience  for all three stalls is almost the same.

Food that is readily prepared is available: Yes

Day Visited for the first time: Friday

Time/Meal: Dinner

Day Visited for the second time: Sunday

Time/Meal: Dinner

Good for Corporate Lunch/Dinners: No

Not unless your department wants to have a corporate meal in a hawker center.

Good to eat with Foreign Friends: Yes

It’s Lau Pa Sat so basically, I’m sure majority of your friends have been there.

Recommended for people who will try Philippine Cuisine for the first time: Depends!

Mack’s Chicken Inasal – Yes, their menu is very Filipino although most of the time, they only can offer 3-4 dishes. You may plan to eat Tapsilog but on your visit, they only have Chicken Barbeque.

Mack’s is the only place in Singapore where you can ask them to prepare a “malasado” fried egg.

Panyeros – They do not have a regular menu. You can just pick which one’s you’ll like to try.

Happy V – Fried Chicken and Rice! The only difference is the gravy! They also have Pizza, Pasta and Burger Steak but these may or may not work with your guests since we all know that Filipino Pasta is sweet.

Mang Kiko’s Lechon – I will have to say Yes, it’s lechon! But come to think about it again, its only roasted pig.

Update: Sadly, this place is no longer open for business. (CLOSED)

 ***Jolly V is now known as Happy V***

I think all Filipinos here in Singapore have heard that there’s a Jollibee stall in Lau Pa Sat but it is not the Jollibee we all Filipinos love.

This is actually Jolly V, I have to say that it is the closest thing we can get to enjoy the Chicken Joy!

They also have Spaghetti (Filipino Style) and Palabok.

I have not eaten from Jollibee since September of 2007 (it’s been 8 months already! Today is 09 May 2008) and I must say that eating from Jolly V will really remind you of our very own Jollibee.
