Eating in Kuala Lumpur - Lunch at Lot 10 Hutong

You have to give it to Tan Sri Dato' Francis Yeoh - Malaysian businessman extraordinaire. He took over the Starhill Shopping Centre and transformed it into a dining sensation by introducing the Starhill Food Gallery - easily one of the most original dining concepts in Malaysia. Now he is doing the same to Lot 10.

Just opened not so long ago, Lot 10 Hutong is another great dining concept. Located at the basement of Lot 10 Shopping Centre which was originally also a food court, Lot 10 Hutong is a food court with an important difference - great design and great food. I don't know how he did it, but Dato' Francis Yeoh has managed to bring together some of the best hawkers in KL, including a few from Singapore - under one roof. The variety is quite mind boggling and you need multiple visits to try everything.

On your first visit to Hutong, it pays to spend a little bit of time wondering around. Though the food court is not that big, the layout is purposely labyrynthian, and you can get a bit lost in there. Try to find your bearings, seek out what you like, find a good place to settle down. Then go and order what you want.

The famous Kong Tai noodle stall - all the way from Singapore.

I tried the Sio Bao (Char Siew Pie) and Egg Tart from this stall. They are both really good.

The Teo Chiew Popiah at this stall was really good. You have to order a minimum of 2. I tried the normal popiah and another with egg skin.

Also had this Curry Noodle with Pork Ribs. Not bad.

Lot 10 Hutong is a great place for lunch, or even dinner if you just want simple but tasty comfort food. A great concept which I will certainly visit every time I go to KL.
