One of my favourite night stalls would be luk-luk (steamboat).
It’s usually set up on a vehicle (motorcycle or truck) with a variety ranging from raw meat to vegetables on skewers to choose from. The price ranges from RM1 – RM4 per stick and the prices are marked on the skewers by colour code. The process is simple, grab a skewer, then dip it in to the boiling water until cooked.
I used to be quite disgusted with luk-luk. I always have this idea of hundreds of people redipping their meat into the boiling water after taking a bite. So with the repeated process, by the end of the day, the bowl of boiling water will end up being a bowl of boiling saliva.
But recently, I’ve grown to love it, especially after few mugs of air kencing setan (beer). Also, I realised that most people do not redip their stuff back into the boiling water after taking a bite. So therefore, the likelihood of having my luk-luk boiled with saliva is pretty slim.
However, excessive lukluk and beer could lead to one thing.

Hahahaha damn happening wei! I can just imagine having steamboat with Tiesto !! Luk-luk is good but got bad experience cause eat already then diarrhea..
Some of my Malaysian friends love this steamboat so much…but I couldn’t get myself to try it.. don’t hate me but I think it’s YUKKKKK…
earl-ku: sotong sotong sotong sotong and sotongs!!
chaliz: why yukk?
I just can’t stand the fact that all kind of raw meat are dipped into the same boiling water… esp when I see bubbles on top of the water (which getting thicker and thicker)…
just my personal opinion laaa… this is one of several things that I don’t wanna try… besides, I can’t imagine how good it would taste like… I’m more BBQ person 🙂
chaliz: heheheh i actually wanted to drink the water! i’m sure it will taste good after so many types of dishes are boiled there 😀
