Singapore Hawker-Style Food Court is Making its Way to Las Vegas

It’ll house a total of 16 stalls dishing out a mouthwatering array of Asian and Western cuisines.

Singaporeans’ love affair with hawker food knows no bounds. Every day, you can spot locals from all walks of life tucking into a variety of dishes doled out at the various open-air ‘community dining rooms’ across the region. In fact, Singapore’s hawker culture is so significant that it was inscribed on the Unesco Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity just last year.  

For those in Las Vegas hankering to get a taste of the hawker culture we all relish, your longings will soon be realised. Resorts World Las Vegas is opening a 24,000-square-foot food hall reminiscent of a Singapore hawker-style food court. 

Called Famous Foods Street Eats, it’ll house a total of 16 stalls dishing out a mouthwatering array of Asian and Western cuisines. On top of that, the food hall will feature a centre bar and a speakeasy hidden somewhere in the sprawling area.

The first-of-its-kind concept in the States is being developed by Zouk Group. It will open its doors to the public during summer of this year. 

“Famous Foods will transport guests to an authentic Asian hawker market — an experience that’s never been replicated in the U.S.,” Andrew Li, the chief executive officer of Zouk Group, shared with Travel + Leisure.

Once up and running, guests can look forward to satisfying their cravings with good food sourced from all over the world including Singapore, Philippines and Japan. Not only that, they can polish off Michelin-starred meals without breaking the bank. Plus, drinks such as the insanely popular bubble tea will be available as well.
