A Global Chinese concept, Lokkee (pronounced as 'Lucky') is a witty and cheeky play on favourite Chinese recipes which have been given a unique tweak to include a dash of Western influence. This genre of Chinese cuisine, often defined by chow mein and fortune cookies, is reinterpreted and elevated here through fresh, top quality ingredients, and clean flavours.
Lokkee aims to add diversity to Singapore’s restaurant landscape and celebrates the style of cuisine commonly found in Chinese restaurants dotted across major cities such as New York, London and Sydney. Created by enterprising Chinese immigrants, it is an appropriation of the food from their motherland, adapted for diners in their new environment.
Lokkee is designed to tap on the growing audience of well-travelled Singaporeans for whom the idea of Chinese food for a Western audience is associated with being in a buzzing cosmopolitan hub.
