If you are looking for a place to eat in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia that serves delicious Malaysian Chinese food all in one complex, then look no further. Lot 10 is a place where you will be able to find a vast selection of delicious food and most are 2nd and 3rd generations.
Lot 10 shopping mall is just down the road from Pavilion shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur. The underground food complex is an indoor version of a hawker market with the comfort of air conditioning and clean tables, not that there’s any problem with eating out door which in my opinion in the true Malaysia experience.
Char Kway Teow
Char Kway Teow in Malaysia is as common as hamburgers in the US and chefs at Lot 10 sure does an excellent job is frying up these plates of heaven.
I ordered my Char Kway Teow with duck egg instead of chicken egg for that extra richness, the noodles are fried to perfection with a smoky char on the edges. The prawns gives the dish a bit more body and that sweet and salty flavour from the Chinese sausage takes the dish to a whole new level. A small sauce dish of mild chili paste comes on the side for customer who wants that extra kick, I obviously added the lot.
The chefs working the magic in creating some awesome Char Kway Teow. The fire in which the wok is roaring which gives the dish the smokiness, what we call wok hei (鑊氣), which literally translate to “Wok Energy”
Don’t be put off by the dark looking plate of noodles, just one bite of the Hokkien mee will have to chasing for one after the other.
The noodles of Hokkien mee is a thick udon like texture that cooked in a dark homemade sauce that rich with soya sauce and dark soy with a touch of sweetness. The fried pork skin gives the dish that extra richness and flavour, is may not be the healthiness but it’s definitely an ingredient that can not be missed out when making Hokkien mee. If you are into a more saucy kind of noodle dish, then Hokkien mee is for you.
In the scorching hot weather of Malaysia what is better to eat than a ice cold Cendol.
This staple dessert in Malaysia is a favourite for the Malaysians and I am definitely a fan too. The sweet coconut milk with a hint of saltiness paired with the sweeten kidney beans and the green jelly topped with a mountain of shaved ice with Malacca palm sugar syrup is truly a master piece.
There are many variations of Cendol, some comes with other toppings like nuts and sweet corns and some with a scoop of ice cream, but my favourite way and the way I recommend having it is with the shaved ice and syrup on top.
Wong Lo Kat
A dark earthy herbal tea that’s bitter in taste may not attract everyones at first, but I would urge everyone to give it a try.
With the medicinal properties that’s helps in the heat of Malaysia and the fact I like it, Wong Lo Kat is something I drink every time I am in Malaysia without fail. The vendor will always offer you a sweet that counter the bitterness, but I always drink it without the sweet as it has a sweetness undertone on the back of your tongue after the bitter taste, a wonderful sensation that can only be experience if you try it.
Lot 10 in Malaysia is a must for food. The shopping mall above also offer a vast range of shops, if you can’t find anything you fancy, there’s always the Pavilion next door you can go to.
