Lot 10 Hutong @ Bukit Bintang - Part 1


Lot 10 Hutong is a gourmet heritage village that grouped up the best of the best eateries in the country. Therefore, you get to try out the best of the best food in Malaysia. I would say, this is the best food court in KL city and also, the one and only food court in shopping complex that serves Non-Halal food. 

My family always comes here fore meal due to the variety. Anyhow, I haven't got to try out all of the stalls because we often stick to the same old choices that we had previously. 

Many many thanks to Rachel for the kind arrangement; together with Citygal, Witch & Lionel and Ken, we were down here to sample the famous dishes from the famous stalls as well as some new faces that popped up just recently. 

1# Campbell Street Mini Popiah


Used to be at Lorong Tiong Nam since 1970s; but we were told that we can only find Campbell Street Mini Popiah in Lot 10 Hutong now as the one located at the old place has already closed down. 

As I recalled, the queue is always long. It always took me some times to get my order done. 


You can choose from egg popiah (RM 3/roll), vegetable skin popiah (RM 2.50/roll) and normal one Campbell Mini popiah (RM 2.50/roll). The minimum order is 2 rolls.

We get to sample one each. The popiah(s) were filled wth lots of ingredients to create the juiciness. I love the fragrant egg version the most.

Yashiki Yakitori & Bar @ Viva Home


Remember I had we had a soul and mind cleansing dinner on one Friday?
That was not all; because we had another cleansing session after the dinner. 
(Do take note with the term on what is their real cleansing session means). 


Well, I really needed some meat. So, I simply tikam (pointed) to a place that serves some protein. We then ended up in Yashiki Yakitori & Bar


Yakitori or  the grilled skewers; they come in bite-sized pieces of meats to offal, mushroom, vegetables ... or anything that can go on the bamboo skewer, and grilled.

Sexy pork belly, salmon with pork belly, chicken... arrived piping hot, very very very fragrant and juicy. (priced at RM 3 onwards per skewer) 

and who is Yakitori's best friend?!


That will go to sake.
We had a bottle of sake to share among all of us.

Favourite of The Day #1: Braised Pork Trotter

In fancy restaurant?!



In posh looking Chinese dining place?



Not anywhere but my house.

I just couldn't believe my eyes, I could have this braised pork trotter on a normal weekday at home. It was not some kind of special occasion eg: Chinese New Year or some reunion dinner or anyone's birthday. Just a simple normal day...


Mum made us braised pork trotter!!! Fried and braised for hours; used a special way to flavour the whole pork trotter; and created this special this. I love the fats part the most; soft, silky soft and melted right on the tongue. The skin was packed with collagen while the meat was succulent. 


Okay, don't drool in front of the screen :P

I wish i could have half of mum's skill! YUM!!! 

Happy Friday!

Kechara Oasis New Age Vegetarian Cuisine @ Viva Home

My gang of friends has been acting weird lately. They seems to hunt after some kind of cuisine which I don't usually go for - that's the vegetarian cuisine. And the weirdest thing is that they are doing it every Friday. I thought, people will go for some meaty food with a drink or two on Friday?! Well, according to them, they said they wanna have a soul and mine cleansing on Friday and opt to avoid those sinful foods. Weird reasons from my weird friends, or... I am the weird one??? 

Kechara Oasis New Age Vegetarian Cuisine has opened its doors in Viva Home Mall. It is bigger than the one in Jaya One; the ambiance and the decors are really posh looking; with high ceiling, it looks really grand. The staffs are friendly and the service provided is attentive. 

On the food we had, I truly have no idea on the names of dishes, as I did not take charge in ordering. Will try my best to name them.  


Vegetables with mushrooms. 


Stir fried vegetable with lotus roots, pea, ginkgo, carrots, baby corns... and finally tossed with macadamia nuts. 


Fried Mayo Mushroom was my favourite. Deep fried crunchy mushroom drenched in thick homemade mayonnaise.

Simply Mel's, a new restaurant serving Malacca Portuguese cuisine is located conveniently at The Sphere, Bangsar South. Family recipe is Simply Mel's highlight. The dishes are homely taste and the best thing(s) I find are their sambal, cincalok and anything to do with the chilli and spices.

Hung Kee Wanton Mee @ Taman Shamelin Perkasa, Cheras

Who doesn't know this famous Hung Kee Wanton Mee located at Jalan Loke Yew?!

Established since mid of 1960s by the Phoon family from a small shoplot and now has expanded to air conditioned shoplots and a branch in Taman Shamelin Perkasa. 


I frequent to their branch; say like once a week after grocery shopping nearby and ordered myself a plate of wanton mee. Hmmm, to be specific, that will be their noodles with char siu (BBQ pork) only (RM 4.50 per plate). You can always have their noodles with char siu and wanton (come in 6 pcs) but I never like their wanton(s) as the skin may be too thick to me. 


Their wanton noodles are handmade; every strand is springy in texture and tossed in well seasoned sauce. Do opt for semi-fat char siu (半肥瘦叉烧) that comes fattier (this time the char siu was not fatty enough); I enjoyed chewing the fatty charred part that gave a sweet aftertaste. 

Verdict: Their char siu may not be the best one you have had; but the yellow thin strands of springy noodles are something you will love. Another reason I love coming here is, I don't have to fight through the traffic and travel down to Jalan Loke Yew for a plate of wanton mee as we have one Hung Kee (their branch) in Cheras :)

DIET Cafe @ Cheras Business Centre


There isn't many western cafe like this one around Cheras. What we normally find in Cheras is the economic style western corners that open during the night (eg. Taman Billion). While this - DIET Cafe opens all day long, from morning till late. 


DIET Cafe is actually stands for "Do I Eat Today? Cafe". It has a casual and cozy ambiance and serves quality range of western and fusion dishes using fresh ingredients. 


I was here with my siblings one Sunday. We are not the morning person; happy to find a cafe that serves all day breakfast on th weekend. But then, that was not a day for their breakkie; we were actually hunting for the Banger 'n' Mash and Chicken Parmigiana 


Hangover (RM 8)
It was the combination of apple, lime and mint to reduce hangover. Something to wake you up :)


For nibble, we had the Crispy Beef Bacon and Cheese Rolls (RM 10)
Melted cheese on the crispy beef bacon!


Banger 'n' Mash (RM 19)
It was the premium chicken sausages served with homemade mashed potatoes and caramelized onion gravy. The chicken sausages were a lil' overcooked to me; the mashed potatoes were really good, with tiny bits of chunks in it and drenched with gravy that was on the sweet side. 


Chicken Parmigiana (RM 26)
Grilled marinated chicken breast layered with melted cheddar cheese, eggplant, and homemade tomatoes sauce and served with spiced wedges and garden salad. The melted cheddar cheese gave an extra kick to the tender chicken breast. 


'Old-Skool' Carbonara (Rm 20)
The classic style carbonara served with beef bacon and mushroom. Carbonara was made in a diluted way; but still creamy as usual. And this was quite a filling one. 

Ahhh, we were all too full for desserts. A good reason for revisit :) hear that the fluffy pancake and the risotto are heavenly good. 

Verdict: It may seem a little pricey for a meal in this area; but trust me; you will find yourself satisfy with the portion and the taste for western food in this area. ohhh, bear in mind that the parking is quite a headache one during working hours.

Aik Yuen Restaurant @ Setapak - for glossy and fragrant Hokkien Mee

Where to find a good plate of Hokkien Mee / Hokkien Char?!

Well, Aik Yuen Restaurant that is located at Setapak is one that serves great plate of Hokkien Mee. 


Here you go, the glossy looking Hokkien Mee (RM 13 for 2 pax) coated in dark brown colour. Came piping hot and full with real wok heil tossed with right amount of pork lard and other ingredients such as pork slices, squids, prawns and the sweet dark sauce that flavoured and coloured the thick far noodles.  


Fried "Peh Ge" (Rice Cake) (RM 6.50) was another good to try. Cooked in the way same as Hokkien Mee;  the only difference is the rice cake that came with chewy texture. 


Cantonese Fried (Yin Yong) or Wat Dan Hor (RM 6.50) had the smoky aftertaste. Perhaps the chef forgot to season our Yin Yong; it was tasteless and unmemorable.

Ristretto Cafe @ Mont Kiara 10

After a night swinging with the beautiful melody at No Black Tie, I got a bit lazy and unmotivated the next day. Ohhhh, Chinese oldies are beautiful; especially when they performed them in a jazzy way. 


My girl friends knocked off my laziness and dragged me over for a cuppa and a late lunch at Ristretto, Mont Kiara. Ristretto serves Peruvian dishes. The ambiance was small but cozy; suitable for a perfect afternoon tea or daily caffeine fix. 


We started with something new from the menu. Papa a la huancaina persona (RM 18). 
It was the boiled potatoes and egg served with the spicy sauce; the sauce came creamy and spiced and drenched all over the potatoes. But well, I would prefer the sauce to be made in a more appetizing way. 


Jalea Mixta (RM 35)
It was like the seafood platter; loaded with deep fried seafood such as squids, prawns, mussels, clams and tapioca.
