The words â€śfood courtâ€ť donâ€™t usually convey the most appetizing of images, but Kuala Lumpurâ€™s Lot 10 Hutong (LG/F, Lot 10, Bukit Bintang) has come up with a novel way to tempt your taste buds. Occupying the basement of the Lot 10 Shopping Centre, Hutong brings together food stalls from 26 of the regionâ€™s top hawker establishments. The non-halal lineup includes classic treats such as KLâ€™s Campbell Road popiah spring rolls, Singaporeâ€™s famed Hong Tai hokkien mee noodles, and dim sum from Hong Kongâ€™s Luk Yu Tea House. With meals starting from around US$3, itâ€™s certainly an affordableâ€”if a little less authenticâ€”way to sample some of Southeast Asiaâ€™s best street food.–Simon Ostheimer
