Hitting Lot 10 Hutong On An Empty Stomach - Pt One


By now much has been said about Lot 10 Hutong, the "swankier" and "pricier" food court where one can find the best of the best hawker fare which were handpicked by Tan Sri Francis Yeoh personally (from our home ground and even Singapore).  Does it live up to its hype? Yes and No.  Some of the fare here were mediocre while some did deliver albeit one can get the real version out on the streets at a lower price.  Of course, there's nothing like having the choice of so many "legen-dary" (been watching "How I Met Your Mother" too much! Hahaha..) street fare made available in a clean, comfortable air-conditioned environment and possibly rodent free too :p
It's a good place to bring your foreign friends to when they visit you as it's really like a one-stop center for famous food fare.  Just make sure you come here famished in preparation of all the various foods you would want to try ... believe me, it's a rather difficult task to choose with the sight and smell of food permeating the air.  Several stalls were either closed or no longer in business when I went there last.  I wonder if any have closed since then.  I must say, my first trip (I've been here several times) to Lot 10 Hutong was lovely not only as it was my first time eating there but because I met up with Ilene too :o).  Where to next Ilene?  Come on, Ilene ...

Oil Rice

A set consisting of a bowl of "Oil" Rice, Pork Ribs and a cup of Chinese Tea (RM16.20).  Ilene said that it didn't pass her taste test.  I read elsewhere that some bloggers enjoyed it though.  Taste is subjective!

Imbi Road Original Pork Noodles

Imbi Original Pork Noodles

Pork Meat Balls & roast stuffed pork intestine

Flat Noodles with Minced Pork
A bowl of dry flat noodles (hor fun) and a bowl of pork meat balls and roast stuffed pork intestine (RM8.90).  I found this quite tasty as the noodles were flavourful indeed with the black sauce and lard oil.

Kim Lian Kee Fried Noodles

Double Duty

Fast wok action

Kim Lian Kee Hokkien Noodles

A plate of charcoal fried Hokkien Noodles (RM8.90) from Kim Lian Kee ... full of wok hei goodness.  This family business has been passed down four generations! 

Ice Room

Topping the mango ice shaving

Mango Snow Dessert
Snowy Mango Dessert from Ice Room, I think it was RM8.90 too, not sure - both Ilene and I enjoyed it; a great refreshing dessert!
