Have you heard of Lot 10 Hutong, “十号胡同” by Chua Lam, Hong Kong Celebrity Food Critic??
It gathers 25 of Malaysia's best local Chinese eateries that have survived the 3rd and 4th generations.
My mum get to know bout this place via newspapers and we went on a random weekend of Dec last year.
There's an entrance into Lot 10 Hutong at the corner of LOT 10 near to the side of Fahrenheit88.
Well, as usual, the first thing to order is beverage.
Sukiyang Coffee @ Hutong Coffee Shop by Sukiyang (Since 1940)
- nice coffee that makes my dad ordered another one! :D
Fried Hokkien Mee & Mee Hoon @ Kim Lian Kee 金莲记 (since 1927)
- this one taste above average but i might thumbs up a little for the guy who's kinda looks like dancing while frying XD

RM2.50 per roll
Fried Thai Bee Hoon @ Thai Corner and Mini Wok

Homemade fish ball noodle soup @ Chua Brother Homemade Fish Ball Noodle
-FAILED!!homemade fishball?? i think i buy machine made better == coz those fishballs aren't fresh!
fishball elasticity = 0
*i'm not sure if it was just that day their fishballs went wrong or it's like that as usual ><
There are still many stalls that i did not manage to try out in a go. Other heritage food available here is such as Ho Weng Kee Wanton mee, imbi road original pork noodle, soong kee beef noodle, hon kee famous porridge and etc.
Overall, Lot 10 Hutong is a good place for tourist since it gathered all kinds of heritage malaysian chinese cuisine in a spot that provides the convenience without the needs of hunting all corners for food.
However, for locals like me, i still prefer to have it at their original old restaurants/shops/stalls as thats the only way to feel the originality......and for sure the price is MORE WORTH!
