Enjoy a wide variety of skewered meats, seafood, vegetables & more at these Johor Bahru lok lok stalls with prices as low as S$0.30 per stick

by Marcus Leong

Many Singaporeans’ favourite pastime is travelling into Johor Bahru, myself included. One of the biggest reasons for travelling to JB (apart from the exchange rate, shopping, and massages) is the food — more specifically, lok lok. It just hits different in Malaysia. If you’re still in the midst of making plans for the weekend, this is your sign to cross the border and check out these lok lok stores for supper.

Possibly one of my favourite places to have lok lok (partly because of the convenient location) is Fa Ge Lok Lok. Located right outside KSL Mall, it makes for a great late-night supper spot, especially after a whole day of shopping. The best part, each stick here is priced from S$0.50 (RM1.50)!

This lok lok hotspot offers a wide variety of ingredients like meatballs, duck, enoki bacon rolls, smoked salmon, and even dumplings. But if you’re planning to make a trip down for supper, you must order Fa Ge’s Chilli Crab Mantou — golden brown fried mantou doused generously in sweet and spicy chilli crab sauce.

🕒 7.30pm–3am (Daily)

Da Cheng Lok Lok is open only in the evening — which makes sense since lok lok is mostly a supper kinda meal. It is one of the most popular stalls in JB and having been there before, I can see why. There is a wide selection of skewered meats and vegetables and each stick is fried to a nice crisp before it is dusted in a house seasoning. 

The skewers are best accompanied by a bowl of hot ramen — how can you say no to that? Each stick here is priced from S$0.30 (RM0.90) so you can just whack all your favourite meats. 

📍 Multiple locations

The best way to enjoy lok lok is to enjoy them by the roadside. You’ll be able to get that at Bro Lok Lok as they serve the skewers straight out of their vehicle — kinda like a food truck of sorts. Apart from the unique dining experience, you also get to choose whether you want your ingredients fried or boiled — my go-to is always the former.

Wei Ge Lok Lok

Wei Ge Lok Lok might be slightly off-the-radar, there’s no doubt that these guys have been slowly but surely making a name for themselves. Operating out of their truck, they offer a wide selection of assorted meats and vegetables for you to choose from. However, they’re most known for their fresh seafood skewers with options like prawns, cuttlefish, and squid. They also have juicy shrimps and crayfish available.

Spice up your supper by pairing it with their signature house sauces. The best part is they’re open until 4am, which is perfect for a real late-night treat.

Another underrated gem amongst the sea of lok lok options is POWERTEA @ Mount Austin. Like most places, they offer a wide selection of meats, seafood, mushrooms, and vegetables — which can be enjoyed either steamed or fried, coated in a spicy or non-spicy seasoning.

Apart from serving a wide variety of skewers, they also serve grilled fish and fresh stingray. Prices for the lok lok skewers start from S$0.30 (RM1), so go on and fill your tummy to your heart’s content!

833 Lok Lok & Bubble Tea 

Just four words: lok lok, bubble tea — say no more!

833 Lok Lok & Bubble Tea combines two of life’s greatest pleasures (for me at least), to give you an irresistible combo that makes for a very sinful yet satisfying supper. They offer a wide assortment of meats and vegetables on sticks which can be paired with their many dipping sauces. 

Spice lovers will enjoy the Nyonya sauce or the Sambal Penyet which packs heat, while cheese lovers will love the cheese dips. The best part? The stall is also halal!

📍 Taman Kota Masai, 81700 Pasir Gudang, Johor, Malaysia
🕒 3pm–12am (Mon), 3pm–1am (Tue to Sun)
