Fat Man Lok Lok Truck - New Year Celebration.

Time for Mamarazzi to go nuts again. Last year end saw these Chinese arrowhead root(Ngaku) selling very cheap at Tesco. RM1.98/kg. Usually it's nearly RM5/kg leh.

Apalagi....operasi menggoreng lor. Fried nearly 15kg of these. Made into Chips.

 Now "expert" already lo. Can straight slice it into the wok. 

 
Only "accident" at the very last piece of "ngaku". No worries....just a free manicure. No blood involved. 

The Chips were super oily but lucky we kinda "won" a year supplies of New Scott® Calorie Light Premium Towel ....very useful at times like these.

It sure helped to soak up all the excess oil to make these chips healthier to eat. 

Managed to get 3 big containers. Brought one container to a friend's new year house party. The rest distributed . Kept a small container for ourselves.


Now we have a very good idea from friend leh. Inside of cooking half dead for house party, they ordered a truck of Lok Lok  from Fatman Lok Lok instead.

What is Lok Lok? Explanation from Google " variant of the steamboat/hotpot meal, except that the food served is skewered and the skewered food is dipped into a hot boiling pot of water to be cooked. This is then dipped into a variety of sauces provided for you."


 They even have a BBQ section where the truck driver and a helper will grill the lok lok for us. 

 Gosh....we were spoil ofor choice...so many types to choose from

 The price of Lok Lok but since friend ordered a whole truck, it was much cheaper. Not sure how much cheaper la.

Caution about ordering the food truck is that you must make sure you have enough people to eat all the Lok Lok coz there are no refund for the uneaten Lok Lok. It's considered sold.


 Plates were provided. 

 I was really blur one what to choose leh. So many choices. I think what I love the most is the fishballs. I had many sticks of that.

Next time house party, maybe can call this Fatman Lok Lok truck instead la. No need to headache cooking non-stop leh. Mamarazzi can relax and chat with guests instead. With so many choices. There are sure something there for everyone, right?

Papa loves the most is the satay gravy they had there. And I spied Mamarazzi been eating a lot of the BBQ stuffs. Maybe coz they have Roast pork there kot.

  5. Wah! A lok lok truck for catering??? Nice idea.

    Looking at your big containers of ngaku, reminded me to get the tin container for my keropok. But 1st need to dry the keropok 1st. Need to wait for the sun to come out 1st. Sigh! I hate all those frying prior to cny but got to do it somehow. ^^

    I love ngaku but cannot eat too many. Sore throat. Lol.

  6. I like lok lok!!!! But I prefer to sit down and lok lok my own....boiling water one, not bubbly satay sauce like in Malacca....and the sauce dripping all over the table top, so messy.

  7. Wow, 15kg is quite a lot. Amazing work! That Lok Lok truck looks so yummy. I would also have a hard time to choose... So tempting. Hopefully the frozen shoulder exercises worked out well for you. My husband was able to reduce a lot of pain through it. Only needs a little more on the back now. Have a blessed week.

  9. uiks!!! I have seen some friends ordering a luk-luk truck for catering, and I think this idea actually exists for some years already.. last time probably people just order as add-on to catering only, but now the luk-luk is the main thing and the only thing.. actually senang like that leh~~

  10. nowadays luk-luk quite expensive leh, start from like RM2 a stick and if you wanna make this a meal then can cost you a bomb.. so buy bulk ordering then actually can save a lot.. the luk-luk man does everything and the host has no frills..

    1. ya wor....very easy to eat till 10 batang leh.

      With the lok lok man around very easy la. no need to do extra work

      Delete
  11. usually the luk-luk man will suggest how much to order based on the number of guests right?? and then always buffer more lah I guess, the Chinese always say "more and left is better than less and not enough".. so if cannot finish consuming the order, the luk-luk man will tabao them for the host one right?? and there goes another round at home the next day~~ :p

    My mom used to fry nga ku chips also, but she retired since 3 years ago. Too much work for something that will be gone too quickly, she said XD .

  18. Eh, can order ngaku chips from mamarazzi? hee..hee... So far I never tried this lok lok. I always see it outside coffee shops. Good idea actually to call lok lok to come to the house when have party or big family gathering.

    1. Franchise kot? Like the Pak Hailam kopitiam

  21. Hmm don't look like a lot from 15kg of ngaku? Or maybe your containers are really big.

    Ordering a luk-luk van is definitely fun... but not cheap lor. Apparently the cheapest is a halal version but of course you don't get certain varieties!
