Hutong @ Lot 10

I don't usually blog about food. But when I read that the old food court at Lot 10 had been given a total makeover and that Tan Sri Dr Francis Yeoh had personally selected his family favourites for the food court, I just had to check the place out.

Strolling along the narrow aisles just like in a courtyard in old China.

The queues can be quite long during lunch hour.

Hutong @ Lot 10 boasts 26 stalls selling all-time favourites including beef noodles, Ipoh chicken rice, siew pau, dim sum, hokkien mee and fried kwei teow. I spied a couple of "non-halal" signs which means pork dishes are served at some of the stalls.

Care for some German sausages and sauerkraut?

Although the food is mostly Chinese, there are enough stalls catering to non-Chinese patrons. The only stall that seems somewhat out of place is Bavaria. It serves German food and beer.

Fried oyster omelette to die for!

I ordered a plate of fried oyster omelette. It was one of the best I had tasted. My only complaint was the amount - way too little for RM10.40 (inclusive of tax). For dessert I had ice kacang. This was a huge disappointment. At RM4.75 a bowl, I had expected more colour and more ingredients. There was no "attap chee" or nuts - two of my must-have ingredients.

This stall is not going to be around much longer if the ice kacang doesn't improve.

An utter disappointment! Lacks colour, ingredients and imagination.

Shoppers in the Bukit Bintang area have plenty of makan places to choose from. Just 100 metres down the road is Pavilion's Food Republic. It's a gourmet haven and glutton paradise rolled into one.

Tomorrow I'll be checking out my favourite rojak stall at Singapore's Food Republic, Wisma Atria. My taste buds are already tingling with anticipation!

some of the food served there are not as authentic as the place of origin.
I do not like to patronize stall where their food are prepared by foreign workers.

I was also disappointed with the food there especially the ice kacang. My favourite ice kacang is still the humble little hut at Brickfields (behind YMCA, in front of 7 eleven).

Thanks for the recommendation. I must check out the Brickfields ABC. I'll go the extra mile in search of the best ice kacang!
