Must-Try Bak Kut Teh at Lot 10 Hutong

Kuala Lumpur is a foodie haven and you will discover a lot of interesting food that is both delicious and exotic tasting. One such discovery is Bak Kut Teh or Pork Ribs Stew cooked in herbs and spices.



It was at Lot 10 Hutong when I had my first sip of this Malaysian favorite. Lot 10 Hutong is a food hall that serves Malaysian heritage dishes.


Lot 10 Hutong is a quaint food hall and very instagrammable too! There are two main entrances and it can get quite crowded especially during lunch and dinner time.


You'll be in food heaven upon entering the labyrinth-like Lot 10 Hutong food hall. You will be created by delicious aromas and can visually feast on what it has to offer, from tasty meats, noodles, dimsums, and much much more.


So this is the stall where I had my first taste of bak kut teh. The uncle who is manning the stall is kinda famous amongst the diners and I think he's been preparing this pork rib soup for years and years now. There are other dishes on the menu but this stall is known for its bak kut teh based on the longish lines.


You can order it as soup or separate soup and noodle serving. I opted for the soup.


I've read about bak kut teh and this pork rib soup has tons of herbs and spices that also works as a tonic. Having said that, it was after several sips and slurps before I was able to appreciate its distinct flavors. Not to mention it was served piping hot! But the meat was really tender and I like that.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
