Steamboat buffets are a Singaporean favourite, and for good reason.
There’s nothing quite like having everyone gathered around a steaming pot of food, taking turns to cook, and having the delicious smell of cooking food wafting through the air.
Steamboats are the perfect opportunity for family and friends to spend some quality time together. After all, they say a family that eats together stays together.
While there is an abundance of steamboat and grill joints around Singapore, Lok Lok is a rarity here. For the unacquainted, Lok Lok is a popular street food found across the border, in Malaysia.
To indulge in this popular street food, all you have to do is take your pick from a variety of food items on satay sticks. These are then cooked and then tossed into a cup of sauce, so you get piping hot food items coated in a thick, dense layer of sauce.
This ‘steamboat on a stick’ is not only cheap, it’s filling and delicious as well!
