Have you ever wonder where to bring your fellow tourist friends to taste true Malaysian food? Now you can suggest Lot 10 Hutong food court which has been around for more than a year now. I have just recently visited it for the first time! This food court is situated on the lower ground floor of the Lot 10 mall. Now, allow me to share my top ten list of must trys at Lot 10 Hutong.

#1: Campbell’s Popiah – RECOMMENDED

#2: Kong Tai Singapore Hokkien Noodles - RECOMMENDED
The plate of Singapore Hokkien Noodles was wet, fragrant and had a generous amount of pork lard in it . Topped with shredded egg and shrimps, I found this best to be eaten with a pinch of lime juice and chili sauce provided on the side, giving this a sour, spicy and savoury combination that was oh-so-addictive.

#3: Kum Leen Kee Hokkien Mee - RECOMMENDED
If you prefer the local KL version of Hokkien mee, you can check out the stall that easily had the longest queue there! Kum Leen Kee’s Hokkien Mee is fried with plenty of pork lard, pork bits and some shrimps in a thick and gooey black sauce. Some might find it a tad oily but that’s how a good plate of Hokkien mee should be – sinful, oily and fragrant! But make sure you eat this while it’s hot or the oil will start coagulating on the noodles and you definitely won’t want to eat that.

#4: Soong Kee Beef Noodles - RECOMMENDED
This came in a bowl of Hakka noodles topped with savoury minced meat of either pork or beef, and had a side of beef balls in soup. The noodles on its own were plain and bland, but give it a good toss with the minced meat and you’ll think otherwise. If you find it too dry, drizzle it with a few spoons of soup and you’re good to go. The side of beef balls, tripe and beef slices were all tender and bouncy, especially the beef balls.

#5: Ho Weng Kee Wantan Noodles
Wantan noodles are usually my default pick when I’m in any food court, especially one that I’m not familiar with. I always thought that wantan mee is a safe choice and that nothing much could go wrong with this dish. Well, not only did it not go wrong, it was really good! The noodles were springy and firm, and the BBQ pork / char siew was lean and fragrant, just the way I like it.

#6: Hon Kee Porridge
I have blogged about Hon Kee Porridge not once, but twice before, so naturally, my face lit up in delight to know that they, too, have a stall at Lot 10 Hutong. We had their signature Raw Fish Porridge that I always ordered, and the porridge came piping hot as expected. I could never get enough of their satin smooth and delicious porridge that was good even on its own. Of course, adding in the slices of fresh fish slices was just icing to the cake!

#7: Oriental Dessert Ice Kacang
Ice Kacang, or shaved ice topped with various beans and dressings, is a famous Malaysian dessert that is perfect on a warm afternoon. I loved the fact that Oriental Dessert uses gula melaka or palm sugar in the mix, topped with plenty of red bean, sweet corn, grass jelly, cendol and nuts. Look at the colourful combination! Give it a good mix and enjoy slurping in the crunchy, nutty and sweet goodness.

#8: Backerei Banana Puff - RECOMMENDED
Backerei is the bakery that you will not miss, located just in front of the escalator coming from Ground floor. It offers a variety of pastries and puffs, but what excited me the most was the Banana Puff that we had after our meals. These unassuming puffs did not look very appealing to me at first, especially when I was full from all the dishes I had! But Saucer took a bite of it and said it’s really good and he seldom praised food so much so I had to take a bite too. And I was hooked! It was still warm when I ate it, complete with fluffy pastry and delicious banana filling inside that was not overly sweet. I love love love it!

#9: Hai Peng Coffee at Hutong Coffee Shop
It was the first time I heard of the brand Hai Peng but it’s apparently a very famous coffee brand in Kemaman, Terrengganu.

#10: Ghee Hiang Souvenirs
Above: Tau Sar Peah, Almond Cookies and Teelseed oil
I think having a food court that combines some of the country’s finest food and cuisine is a brilliant idea, not to mention convenient especially to tourists. No doubt the quality and standard may not be as good as the original stall but I’d say it’s close enough! What’s more, you get to enjoy all of these in a hip shopping mall with air-conditioned comfortable seating environment? I definitely wouldn’t mind a second visit.
