La Xiao Chuan is a unique camping-themed restaurant that stays open until 3AM with spicy skewers, juicy oysters & more tantalising bites


Camping in the woods might not be as common on our sunny island (unless you count outfields during NS), but that doesn’t mean that we have to miss out on the joy of being able to chat the night away while sitting among the tents and over some delicious, freshly barbecued treats and a couple of cold ones with our friends! 

Located at City Gate in the Bugis area, La Xiao Chuan is a unique restaurant that allows you to experience the fun of camping right in the heart of a bustling city.

As you step into the restaurant, you’ll see that it’s decked out in a bunch of TikTok and IG-worthy camping-themed decor including tents, fairy lights, standing oil lamps and more. Even the tables and chairs are on theme — with foldable camping chairs and tables (don’t worry, they’re sturdy!).

And the restaurant doesn’t just look good, the food is pretty highly raved as well! The menu is quite substantial — with items ranging from skewers like chicken gizzard (S$3.80/3 sticks), pig skin (S$3.60/3 sticks), chicken wings (S$2.50/stick) to juicy and garlicky roasted oysters (S$18/3 pieces), roasted lobster tail (S$6/3 sticks), roasted pomfret (S$8) and more.

To emulate the camping and barbecue vibes even more, they even have tin foil dishes like tin foil potato (S$7), tin foil shrimp (S$7) and so on.

For the fans of Chinese mukbangs, they also have sinfully indulgent braised seafood selections like lobster tail in sauce (S$15.80), braised crab legs (S$15.80), braised whelk (S$14.80) and the list just goes on. 

And here’s the best part — they open until 3AM daily (and apparently, sometimes they stay open even later!).
