Keep your stomach empty before heading down to these 12 popular lok lok spots in Singapore, because we know it’ll be hard to resist the urge to stuff yourself silly while thinking “just one last stick.”
DLLM Lok Lok
DLLM Lok Lok is popular for having all their lok lok priced at just S$1 — all skewers, no matter the ingredients. What makes this an even more popular late-night haunt is the fact that they open till 4am!
Other than the skewers, one of their selling points is their range of free-flow sauces. There are the more typical zesty choices such as Chinchalok and Thai Nam Jin Sauce, but the crowd favourite at DLLM is definitely the creamy Salted Egg Sauce.
