The Lokal


New Year’s Day brunch: Lobster Roll (26 SGD) with coleslaw and lemon mayo, chicken schnitzel sandwich (22 SGD) with avocado, fried eggs, romaine lettuce and tomatoes and truffle fries with parmesan (10 SGD). Flushed down with cup of coffee (4.5 SGD) and australian prosecco (70 SGD / bottle).

I approve.




For New Year’s Eve we tried this Fujian (province in China) place at VivoCity. Their sister outlet on Kitchener Road has been awarded Michelin Star (2016, 2017, 2018). Managed to make to a reservation on a same day so could skip the queue this time.

For starters we had Pig’s trotters jelly (7.90 SGD). I was planning on having also Drunken Cockles (cockles in garlic sauce and chili), but unfortunately they did not have any. For main dish we took some Lor Mee (noodles with mussels, shrimps, eggs and pork belly) for 9.80 SGD, cabbage rice (19.50 SGD for medium sized, enough for two) and my absolute favourite, Shredded pork with sesame bun. You get a crispy and bit sweet sesame bun, which you fill in yourself with juicy pork and onion mixture. Absolutely amazing!

The service was good and fast, but the waiter’s english could have been a little better. Anyway we got what we ordered and got answers if it is possible to buy home their chili-sauce. They have this fabulous sauce on tables and yes, it is possible to a jar home with 6.5 SGD.
