Lok Lok Stall’s Descriptions Range From Brutally Honest To Painfully Obvious

Since Singaporeans haven’t been able to dine out since 16 May, more have been ordering food delivery.

Frequent customers will be well accustomed to the menus of different establishments. Most list out their offerings without much description, apart from the name of the item.

However, a lok lok stall in MacPherson decided to add in the descriptions for all their items on GrabFood.

Upon reading them, one can immediately tell that the menu descriptions are deadpan humour at its finest. And we can all surely appreciate a dash of humour in our food delivery experience.

Malaysian street food with a dash of humour

The stall in question is DLLM Lok Lok, located at MacPherson Road.

It serves up various skewered meats and vegetables, boiled in hot water or deep-fried in oil.

While their Malaysian street food offerings will bring back memories of JB outings, their sense of humour was discovered by TikToker @supdion.

We’ll give you some examples.

Describing lok lok with humour

For the popular Broccoli, nothing can really describe it to people who don’t know what it is… but calling it “Cauli’s Cousin” may come close.

After all, some may say that they do look somewhat like cauliflowers.

Calling a Fish Dumpling with Fish Roe a “pregnant fish ball” may not be too accurate, though it does paint a vivid image.

Source

We’re also not sure it’s a ringing endorsement to say their Fish Otah is something mummy dearest “probably likes”.

Source

Obviously, Singapore’s efforts to discourage people from smoking have paid off, as the stall thinks its Smoked Duck has picked up a “bad habit”.

The stall must firmly believe that the chicken came before the egg – they describe Quail Eggs as “small chicken”. Oh, and they reportedly don’t have bones.

Source

Some of the descriptions can be slightly off-colour, like saying the Pork Taiwan Sausage has meat “probably longer than yours”. Hmm, longer than your what…?

Source

Then there’s the Cheesy Cocktail, described as sausage with a “white thing inside”.

Source

Fish Balls, though, are certainly not “fish’s balls” – do fish even have balls?

Brutally honest descriptions

When marketing doesn’t do the trick, the best way may be to go against all convention and be brutally honest.

For example, revealing to customers that their Pork Belly slice with Enoki Mushroom is “very tedious to make”. Well, we’re sure we appreciate the effort.

Or that the Marinated Pork Belly Cube Skewer is so “difficult to skewer” that they wanted to charge more for it.

Source

When it comes to Fried Nuggets, the stall makes no bones about it: It can be found at McDonald’s.

Source

In their opinion, Cuttlefish is “fake fish”, though they’ll offer it if we want it.

Source

Unabashed praise

When it comes to some of their offerings, though, they’ve decided to go to the other extreme and use unabashed praise.

Their Golden Fried Mantou is thus the “best creation in the world”.

Source

They aren’t afraid of a limited vocabulary either – their Fried Fish Wantons and Fried Chicken Dumplings are simply crispy and delicious things, No. 1 & 2.

Painfully obvious descriptions

Speaking of words failing them, when that happens the descriptions become painfully obvious.

We think most people would know that White Button Mushrooms are big round things.

Source

Likewise, Cheese Tofu is tofu with cheese inside. Duh.

Source, Source

How does one describe Fried Veg Popiah? Well, it’s just vegetable wrapped with a “crispy thing”.

Source

And when one is totally out of ideas, it’s okay just to let the item speak for itself.

Thus Chicken Satay is caustically just “Chicken Satay…”. If you don’t know what that is, perhaps they can’t be bothered to explain.

Source

Relieving the monotony of food delivery

We don’t know if the corny descriptions on their GrabFood menu attract more customers.

They do, however, go some way towards relieving the monotony of ordering food delivery again for the 10th time this week.

Kudos to DLLM Lok Lok for brightening our day and providing some belly laughs while we try to fill our bellies.
