Rockin' Char Siew @ Hutong, Lot 10, KL


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.
(Next time I'll ask for a leaner cut though - felt like such a big sinner after that meal! Haha...)

My original review of some other stalls at Hutong:

*waves to Arlene & Kelvin (& Danny)*

(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.....

to LightYoruichi:
You scream, I scream - we all scream for pork! :)

to thule aka leo:
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! :)

Don't worry. You are not the only one with a loooooong "To Eat" list! :D

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!
