Hutong, The Shard
Deputy editor Miranda McMinn tries a North Chinese dim sum lunchtime menu
Listen up people. If you’re going to lunch at Hutong don’t have breakfast first. There’s going to be a lot to get through, guys.
The award winning northern Chinese restaurant sits on Level 33 of The Shard, in the heart of the City. You whizz up in the lifts and emerge into the restaurant, buzzing with business types (smart and elegant dress is a must, a sign warns downstairs) looking like they’re enjoying Friday lunchtime as they know best.
Our table is right by the to-the-floor window so we have the best view in London – across the river to the Walkie Talkie, the Gherkin and all the other frankly odd-shaped buildings that have shot up in recent years.
But we’re not here to talk about architecture. We’re here to talk Dim Sum – specifically the new lunchtime dim sum menu that has been created by Hutong’s dim sum Chef, Qui Xin, and Head Chef Bing Luo.
Our charming waiter suggested that we take one of each. As each comes with three largish pieces of dim sum this seemed a little excessive, though we didn’t do too badly. Pretty soon the dim sum was arriving at the table by the lorry load in classic baskets and pretty leaf themed plates.
