I’ll always remember the first time I ate Lok Lok out of a converted van in JB. Although it was a tad unhygienic, it was a truly fun and unique dining experience.

Lok Lok is a dish consisting of various deep-fried foods such as meats and vegetables that are served on a skewer and traditionally dipped into thick satay sauce.

Lok Lok is EXTREMELY underrated in Singapore. If you haven’t tried it, honestly why?

So here it is. Here’s a list of Lok Lok spots you can enjoy in Singapore so you don’t have to travel all the way to JB.

2. Chuan Le Xiang Lok Lok

This next one is a little bit out of the way but definitely worth the trip.

This old school Lok Lok dining experience is a passed-down 25-year Singapore family-kept recipe extracted from Satay Bee Hoon.

There’re three soup bases for you to choose from (chicken/mala/satay) but we highly recommend the satay base. Each base pot will cost you $8.

Best part, each stick goes as low as $1 so you know you’ll be leaving this place with a food coma.

4. JQ Pot

Tucked away in Pasir Panjang Food Centre is a shop that sells Lok Lok with a twist. Instead of dipping your skewered ingredients in peanut sauce, you get a pot of gooey melted cheese.

The cheese used is a mixture of nacho cheese and mozzarella. In case you’re someone who downs cheese like water, they provide refills for free. So you can eat all the cheese that you want.

Their Cheesy BBQ Lok Lok ($38) comes in a set which includes 18 sticks of food of your choice. You can also order additional skewered ingredients if you’re still hungry!

Located in Chomp Chomp Food Centre, you can expect a 45 minute wait as the process to prepare these skewers involves coating the chosen skewers in their special homemade sauce and either grilling these skewers over a charcoal grill, or deep frying them.

However it’s truly worth the wait, so sit around, enjoy a drink or two while Wang BBQ & Grill prepares their special Lok Lok for you.
