Lok Lok – Penang, Malaysia

Lok Lok

On a recent trip to Penang, Malaysia I got to enjoy LOK LOK – a particular delight! Lok Lok consists of colored sticks, with a large variety of foods and food types, from squid to beef, from fish balls to vegetables and many things in between. Most are put into boiling water for a short time to cook, but others don’t need to be cooked at all. The color of the stick denotes the price, being just a few cents for each stick. Once the food is cooked, you can dip it into your choice of one of the many sauces on offer. This delicious Malay street food can be enjoyed amidst the hustle and bustle of downtown Georgetown.
