Rockin' Char Siew @ Hutong, Lot 10, KL

YUMS....

We took our darling (Singaporean!) friends Arlene and Kelvin to the increasingly popular Hutong food court in Lot 10, so that they could sample a variety of our yummy Malaysian food in one place*. :)
(* Without being harassed by friendly cockroaches or the odors of stuffed up drains.. LOL)

Spotting a tempting display of char siew (honey roasted pork), Kelvin ordered up a dish of it from the Ho Weng Kee Wantan Noodles stall:
(The man loves pork...)
Pork ...

Thanks to his sharp eyes, and great (pork-)intuition, I had one of the best char siews in my life. :D

Although the slices served were just a tad too fatty for my taste, it was SO GOOD!:
- Firm (but not tough) meat,
- some crispy, yummily charred bits,
- melt in your mouth fatty parts, and
- slightly sweet (yay! not too sugary) and smokey flavour:
Closer look ...

I still dream about this char siew, which is now firmly in my list of faves.
:D
(Next time I'll ask for a leaner cut though - felt like such a big sinner after that meal! Haha...)

*waves to Arlene & Kelvin (& Danny)*
COME VISIT AGAIN SOON PLEASE. MISS YOU!!! *HUGS*

(And thank you for the t-shirt... It's perfect for me!)


(Once again)
So, it's: Delicious array of famous Malaysian food stalls under one roof! :) BUT prices are higher than original stalls (although still affordable by KL standards), can be very hard to find a table during peak hours and surrounding area can get quite jammed during week day peak hours.....

    Haha, true....
    But that time we wanted to give our Sg guests the chance to lots of different things at the same time so we went to Hutong - so, depends on the occasion, I guess! :)

    Haha... thanks.
    (Still working on it though! So far I only reached an equilibrium but if I stop working out I will definitely pile on the pounds very quickly)

    Good luck with searching for good pork!
