Lok Kee is Tung Lok Group's latest concept - technically not since they were established in late 2015. Quirky, fun and casual concept that is reminiscent of the hip and happening dining holes in Shanghai. Do not get me wrong, I love the vibe of the place.

Wet wipes disguised in a condom-like packaging, almost passe since Cabbage and Condoms were in vogue. Kitschy nonetheless.

I spot Sriracha from USA...though. 

A young waitress with Taiwanese accent comes by, takes our order and bounces off. Ah, youth.

Theatrical and lauded a must try, how often do you get a pineapple bursting into flames anyway. So it's set on fire and you watch the fire get extinguished on its own. Visually it is not a common sight but the novelty ended the moment the flames did too.

Unveil a carved pineapple to reveal braised beef chunks, pineapple balls and carrots. Everything was too sweet about this dish.

Mushu Pork ($24)

The sweetness continued with the Mushu Pork, a bummer if you ask me since it was going down the sweet hill. The kurobuta pork was an excellent cut to begin with since it guaranteed tender pork slices but having one dish after another sweet based, we were already thankful the portions were not huge to begin with.

Stir Fried Kale ($16)

I probably never rejoiced over a plate of stir fried greens so much until now. Finally, a savoury dish!

Gimmicky concept, perhaps just one visit and no more for me. It may have been the choices of dishes made but I am not a fan.
