It is such a simple but brilliant concept”, enthused Chua Lam who was so enamoured by Lot 10 Hutong that he personally inked the calligraphy of the brand logo and has since, been singing its praises far and wide throughout his travels.

The city of Guangzhou in China with its Zhujiang new town development headed by Mr Ralph Hu Zhi Xiong has recently extended a special invitation to Tan Sri Francis Yeoh to open Lot 10 Hutong in its metropolis of 39 commercial buildings.

A Malaysia delegation of over forty Lot 10 Hutong representatives (yup, the hawkers themselves!) were subsequently flown in to Guangzhou for a first-hand experience of its dynamic potential.

Long story short, the trip was a success and now Lot 10 Hutong is in China!

Lot 10 Hutong in Guangzhou will be housed in the landmark “Tsai Lan City of Fusion Cuisines”, inspired and initiated by Chua Lam to be a haven for good food lovers.
A 41-storey skyscraper in the heart of Zhujiang, the first 5 storeys of the tower will be dedicated to offer the finest selections of Taiwanese and Malaysian cuisines and premium food brands from Hong Kong and China.

The internalization of Malaysia’s Lot 10 Hutong by Tan Sri Francis Yeoh in Guangzhou sets an unprecedented step forward into China where overwhelming response will pave the way for future developments in Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Macau, Nanjing, Wuhan, Chongqing.

Malaysian food is great precisely because we have many heritage brands of exciting cuisines which are now preserved in Lot 10 Hutong. When we build Lot 10 Hutong in Guangzhou or anywhere in China, we are not only championing these brands but we are also branding Malaysia and the Malaysian culture and people. As good food does indeed tells you a lot about the people ….” concluded Tan Sri Francis Yeoh in this milestone collaboration.

Very well said Tan Sri Francis! Here’s a toast to Malaysian food taking over the world!! :P

        Hi Rebecca,
        thank you so much for your efforts. However, as far as i know Tsai Lan City of Fusion Cuisines is not a building name nor an address where Lot 10 Hutong is housed. I have friends who are working in Zhujiang New Town but no one heard of this place.
