Famed for its contemporary approaches to traditional Chinese food along with its unyielding commitment to theatrics and witty presentation, Lokkee, part of the TungLok Group, is one Chinese restaurant that impresses time and time again.
The restaurant reinterprets and elevates the traditional Chinese recipes with a dash of Western influence, celebrating the unique style of cuisine that is commonly found in Chinatowns dotted across major, non-Chinese cities around the world such as New York, London and Sydney.
Through marrying culinary prowess along with fresh, top quality ingredients, the chefs here continue to push boundaries to what many of us know and understand about Chinese cooking, creating a whole new genre of Chinese cuisine altogether. Our favourites include their Firecracker Chicken Nest that draws its inspiration from Sichuan’s cuisine as well as their ‘Bakkwa’ Bacon Salad—a starter that marries both the East and West perfectly.

Duck aficionados, prepare your stomachs because TungLok Group is jazzing up the food scene once again with their new restaurant, Duckland.
Priding themselves on using ducks from Silver Hill Farm in Ireland—a breed that is known to be the ‘wagyu’ of ducks—the Irish duck is no normal duck. It is actually a unique and cultivated hybrid of the Peking duck and the Aylesbury duck, which are poultry specially bred for their dense and porous skin. This means that the ducks used in the dishes here at Duckland will be even more succulent, tender and robust than your average duck.
Adopting a ‘farm to fork’ concept which emphasises heavily on the utilisation of top-notch quality ducks from Ireland, their dishes all embody the authentic flavours of Ireland and the best flavours of duck meat you can get.
Located in United Square at Novena, Duckland has just opened its doors in mid-January. From now until 28th February 2019, our readers can quote ‘ladyironchef’ to enjoy 10% off the total bill with a minimum spend of S$50*. Here is what you can expect at Duckland!

A favourite venue for family dining and cosy gatherings, the restaurant enthrals with their contemporary approach to traditional classics.

The Dragon Chamber is the first speakeasy restaurant in Singapore. A new dining concept by TungLok Group, The Dragon Chamber is hidden within Lokkee at Plaza Singapura.
For the uninitiated, a speakeasy usually refers to a bar which is hidden from plain sight; with that, part of the fun is in digging out its whereabouts. Go through a secret entrance in Lokkee and enter a different world. The Dragon Chamber is effortlessly hip and cool without trying too hard.
Do be warned that this new concept is not a space for political correctness. Only individuals aged 16 and above are permitted to enter.
