American chinese cuisine

I’ve always maintained that American chinese  food is a cuisine of its own category in the same  way that straits Chinese  cuisine  us not china chinese cuisine. Food, by its very nature, has to adapt to its environment. COoks have to find substitutes and adapt to the tastebuds of their clientele or their restaurants  will not survive.

While growing up, I’ve  come to accept that American chinese food is normally known to be cheap and satisfying but oily and not very good most of the time. i was extremely surprised to find out that the Tung Lok group of restaurants decided to open Lokkee, an american chinese food concept. that’s really taking chinese fine dinning to a different  level. up or down, i think depends on who is eating  it.

First of all its not cheap. for just the two of us the bill was $120. But to be fair we ordered  quite a bit of food.

And a flaming pineapple was involved. With real flames.

The food wasn’t bad. It was definitely American Chinese cuisine. Especially the fried rice. The pineapple pork was pretty good, flames and all. Left a bit of a tangy aftertaste. The pork buns were delicious. The bread wasn’t too thick, and was just sweet enough.

We made the reservations through the Chope app and it was pretty easy. Its located in Plaza Singapura (the old wing). Its between a Thai restaurant and Swensens, on the 2nd floor, near the front of the building. Not that hard to find once you know what you are looking for.
