You’re most likely found enjoying lok lok with just your bestie or a small bunch of close friends, enjoying the same company you’ve spent years or decades with.

Before you know it, you’ll be picking up a skewer or two of roast pork belly or pork intestines and liberally dipping it in the chili sauce even if it already has chili sprinkles on it – that’s just in your fiery nature!

4. Taurus: White Fishball

20 April - 20 May

You probably grabbed a few skewers and plonked them on your best friend’s or partner’s plate before helping yourself – that’s how much you value your relationships.

In between mouthfuls of tasty grilled meat and vegetables, you’re most likely busy learning about the latest developments among your friends, asking after their lives and latest adventures to satisfy your endless curiosity.

Birthday? Public holiday? Anniversary? Any reason is a good reason to gather – if you’re a Libra!

10. Scorpio: Oyster Mushroom

23 October - 21 November

A lok lok feast might just be the thing to feed your voracious appetite. Grab a few of each type of skewers, and perhaps a whole bunch of oyster mushrooms – or those meats or seafood with intense, rich flavors that you love so much. Grilling brings out those deep umami flavors in the juicy oyster mushrooms, making them particular irresistible to you. 

11. Sagittarius: Cuttlefish Balls

22 November - 21 December

We bet you get lots of invitations to lok lok parties because you’re just so fun to have around! Even if it rains cats and dogs on your party, you’ll find the silver lining and bring some sunshine to everyone around you. You definitely fall into the live to eat category, and the sumptuous, tasty cuttlefish balls will have you reaching for seconds or thirds.

12. Capricorn: Tofu Fishcake

December 22 - January 19

You don’t need anyone to order your skewers at the lok lok stall – you already know what you like, and it probably hasn’t changed too much from your childhood! Traditional foods you grew up with like tofu fishcake and fishballs are natural choices when it comes to lok lok, and you can have it day after day without ever getting sick of them.

Plus, make a delicious lok lok sauce 

Lok Lok are tiny bite-sized food skewered on a stick and then dipped into hot water to cook. This communal styled steamboat is an Asian favorite and is found in many street stalls around Malaysia and Singapore. But the true magic lies in its dipping sauce which offers spicy, sour, and earthy notes. Lok Lok without Lok Lok Sauce would simply not be as delicious.
