After watching the movie “It’s a Great Great World”, I was intrigued by the product Chew Chor Meng sold in the movie, and was on my search for the ‘Lok Lok’. It also known as ‘satay celup’ in Malaysia, is like steamboat where skewered food is dunked in thick aromatic satay sauce.
This Chinese-meets-Malay fusion food is now a hard find – so imagine our excitement when we found it at Old Airport Road Hawker Centre. You can order a $15, $20 or $25 set where you will be served an assortment of raw seafood, meat and vegetables all served on satay sticks. If you like variety, there is quite a selection with cuttlefish, prawns, crabstick, baby clams, pork slices, pig intestines and assorted balls.
Instead of rice, I had my steamboat with a small plate of satay beehoon. While the dish looked simple, the sauce was deliciously flavourful and mildly spicy, said to be made with 15 different ingredients.
