Why did we dine here? – Lot 10 Hutong has more than 30 of the country’s best eateries in the ground floor of a Kuala Lumpur shopping center, right in the heart of the city. Each needs to have been around for at least 40 years. This is the only heritage hawker center of its kind in Malaysia.
After having dined at a fancy restaurant, Bijan, which was very good but full of tourists and business folks, we felt it would be fun to a place like this to try lots of different foods. No need to taxi and walk all over town to sample all sorts of food.

This is a crowded food court where you can quickly try all sorts of treats. Of course prices are higher than real hawker stores.
They are opened a similar food court in Guanzhou, China in August 2013.

Nearby is the Thai Odyssey spa in Farenheit 88, Lot2-42 2nd floor. A clean safe and cheap place for some relaxation.

Lot 10 Hutong Kuala Lumpur (13)

Some of our favorites:

Lot 10 Hutong Kuala Lumpur Sarifah Cafe Ayam rice

Sarifah Café – Ayam Rice (MYR 4.30 = US$1.33) – Spicy as heck but worth it the sweating.
Roti Canai (2.20) – Cheap Indian style flatbreat in US$ terms, thick with rich, creamy curry. We know it as Roti Prada from places like Straits Cafe in San Francisco. Unfortunately, the US version are totally different.

Lot 10 Hutong Kuala Lumpur Hon Kee Frog Porridge Jook

Hon Kee Porridge – They opened in 1949 and have been humming along ever since. Frog porridge (16.10) in a huge, hot clay pot. Boiling hot, excellent flavor, ridiculously big serving.

Lot 10 Hutong Kuala Lumpur Kim Lian Kee Hokkien meemee

Kim Lian Kee – Hokkien Mee Mee (9.50) was our first encounter with this dish of stir fried dark noodles. Singaporean Hokkin Mee is a ligher colored noodle dish. Lots of fatty pleasure, probably from pork fat used to cook it. Interesting local dish and no need to visit their restaurant in Chinatown.

Lot 10 Hutong Kuala Lumpur Dim sum

LaYumCha – Dim Sum all day long from Chef Xing Kor’s 23 years of experience. – Sesame balls, Steam Buns were surprisingly good for having sat a while.

Lot 10 Hutong Kuala Lumpur Tai Lei Loi Kei Macau Pork Chop Bun

Tai Lei Loi Kei – They’ve been around since 1968, serving up those juicy Pork Chop Buns. Sawdust dessert (5.50) a rich creamy dessert with peanut layers. Yes they have a mother location back in Macau, China SAR.

Lot 10 Hutong Kuala Lumpur Oriental Dessert Green Tea Ice

Oriental Dessert – Ice Kacang, or shaved ice Great Tea flavor. They took out a huge frozen green hunk of ice and placed it on their motorized shaver and cranked out nice thin ice sheets. Red beans and crunchy chips topped it off.
Famous Badung drink (4.70) milk and rose syrup with jello bits was pretty sweet. This is a variant of the Indian drink.
