To celebrate ‘Double Fifth’, the traditional Chinese festival which falls on Tuesday 26th June this year, Hutong will be serving a menu of five dishes, exploring five different cooking methods commonly used in Chinese cuisine - deep-frying, poaching, steaming, stir-frying and braising.
Hutong are also delighted to be sponsoring the annual London Dragon Boat Race for the third year with the Hutong Anniversary Cup awarded to the team achieving the fastest heat time over the course of the various races.
Hutong opened on 26th June 2013 on Level 33 of The Shard, serving Northern Chinese cuisine. Hutong takes its inspiration from the dishes served in the imperial palaces of old Peking. Based on the Lu school cuisine of Shandong Province, renowned for its seafood and vinegars, and with influences from Sichuan Province, famous for its fiery spices and peppers, the menu at Hutong artfully captures the subtlety and surprises of Northern Chinese cooking.
