Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau chats with patrons and vendors at Adam Road Food Centre

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was spotted at Adam Road Food Centre this morning (Nov 16) at about 7.45am.

When he arrived, he headed straight to Adam Drinks Stall and ordered a cup of lime juice.

According to The Straits Times, different groups of people were having their breakfast, when Prime Minister Trudeau stopped to chat with them. 

Lim Zi Ai, 25, who works at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and her mother, housewife Jenny Tan, were sharing a plate of wonton mee when sat down with them for a quick chat. 

"Very good looking! And very nice, as Canadians are known to be," Ms Lim quickly replied when she was asked of her opinion of Mr Trudeau.

 The 46-year-old leader, who often dons colourful and creative sock designs, was dressed casually in a white shirt and beige pants.

Many stall owners and customers were excited to see the Canadian prime minister and whipped out their smartphones to take photos and record videos of him.

The Straits Times understands that Mr Trudeau's team picked Adam Road Food Centre, as it is near the Four Seasons Hotel where he is staying.

Nazerah Ahmed, 22, and her 53-year-old father, Ahmed Samin, an air-con salesman, were sharing a curry puff when Mr Trudeau came by their table to say hello and offered to take photos with them.

Singapore Polytechnic student Ms Nazerah said: "We didn't know he was coming; we're very surprised. He seems like a nice person."

The four young children of Ms Brenda Lim, 40, were charmed by Mr Trudeau and described him as "funny" and "friendly" after their brief encounter.

The Canadian prime minister took his leave at 8am, after completing a round of the food centre.

Mr Trudeau arrived in Singapore earlier this week as a guest of the ASEAN chair for the ASEAN Summit that concluded on Thursday (Nov 15), for his first visit here in his current capacity. 

Yesterday, he also visited NUS for a town hall discussion and had a meeting with Razer CEO Tan Min-Liang.

He was also at Fort Canning Park, which has a memorial plaque to his great-great-great-great-grandmother Esther Farquhar Bernard.

He is leaving Singapore to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings in Papua New Guinea this afternoon.
