Lok lok is a street food loved by Malaysian Chinese and Indians. It is basically a food truck that sells all kinds of seafood, meats, and vegetables on skewers which later gets cooked in a boil, fry, or grill.
People love to eat this as a late night snack just like you would at a mamak place!
So, let’s dig in and discover the top 5 lok lok spots in KL!
Lok Lok Street, Puchong
If you are one from the Puchong area, this is a place you will not miss! You will find this Lok lok street behind the yellow building known as Bangunan Pro ice, located next to IOI Boulevard.
The empty area in the day gets bustling at night, with different food trucks filling up the parking lot. You’ll see vendors selling char kuey teow, desserts, snacks, prawn mee, and much more.
The Lok lok van is located next to the drinks and desserts van, with seats provided around the area for you to dine.
Just easily pick your skewer of choice, and let the owner know which way you would like it to be cooked – boiled or deep fried!
Mushrooms and bacon skewers are usually delicious deep fried, while vegetables and certain sotongs go amazing with their sambal after getting boiled.
You also get to dip your skewers in peanut sauce, sweet and sour sauce, and more.
