As usual, we were browsing and hunting through for a nice dinner, and somehow Hubby had a great idea of having some Lok Lok! Commonly on the island, we usually go to Padang Brown or the Pulau Tikus Market at night, however this time; hubby wants to try out the Lok Lok at Butterworth’s Chai Leng Park, Wai Sek Kai.

We made a trip over there and we chose New Corner Lok Lok as it is the first visible stall when you enter into this one way street. In the evening, this street is turned into a hawker food haven with stalls lining up from the beginning right till the end.


Soon enough, we were seated and with the water boiled up nicely. My son took skewers of cuttle fish with kangkung with the vegetable neatly folded up.


There is a wide selection of mushrooms, all of them so nicely prepared on a stick. With so many types of mushrooms to choose from, I got a few sticks of each.


Oyster mushrooms


My plate filled with meatballs and greens…

There should be something for everyone here!


There are six types of homemade sauces on the table, all made by the taukeh himself. It’s not easy choosing the sauce that you like as every one of them has its own flavour…e.g. the thick reddish sweet sauce is good for cuttlefish with kangkung. The chili sauce with lots of dried shrimp was very flavorful. All the sauces were just …oomph!



Clockwise from top: Satay Sauce, Spicy Sauce, Dried Shrimp Sauce, Thai Sauce, Sweet Sauce and the Kerabu Sauce


There are times when the weather may get hot, and you would prefer having your Lok Lok in an air conditioned shop instead. No worries, the taukeh also owns a shop just further down the street. On our second trip there, we visited the shop, Sim Corner Lok Lok. All the food items sold in the stall can be found in the shop as well!

Air con and more comfortable environment, all for the same price

Wide selections available at the shop as well…

Enoki mushroom wrapped with Chinese Cabbage


There was plenty of other greens selection as well


Prices charged following the color of the stick, as shown above

There are also food items for frying, for example skewers of pandan chicken pieces, pig’s ear and also yam rolls. Go ahead and make a trip to Wai Sek Kai and satisfy your cravings! Click here for the Map Location.

Wow…am impressed with the variety, especially the mushrooms and veggies. Never seen those stuff at Lok Lok stall in KL. I usually attack the cockles..followed by pork balls..yummzz!

May 12th, 2009 at 9:45 pm

Nic (KHKL) – This is the first lok lok stall that I’ve seen with so many sauces…very tasty too.

iamthewitch – Sure has plenty of choices and also fried items as compared to the island.

J2Kfm – Sorry la, my friend…this hawker food is definitely not suitable for you.

Food Paradise – You are most welcome.

allie – Although the stall is on the roadside, it is pretty clean. For a cooler place, go to their air-con shop.

Foodbin – Another place for lok lok :)

Precious Pea – I agree with you…they do have lots of vegetables besides the meat and seafood.

May 12th, 2009 at 10:15 pm

Wow! Lots of variety! Haven’t come across a shop specialized in Lok Lok. Very interesting.

YuNiq – Do give this lok lok a try if you are around that area.

Satisfyingtummy – You get to drink the soup from the steamboat whereas in lok lok , you can’t do that.

wendy – Oh…I did not see the deep fried mantis prawn. Sure to look out for it on next visit…thanks.

Alan – Nice food is meant for sharing..

SimpleGirl – You might fall in love with it when you try it.

Little Inbox – You really know how to get the best out of the sauce. The taukeh was there to lend a helping hand in mixing some of the sauce for us.
