Square Meal Review of Hutong at The Shard ?

The Aqua Group’s second sky-high restaurant in the Shard takes inspiration from the company’s Michelin-starred Hutong in Hong Kong. Northern China is the gastronomic compass point, though anyone looking for regional oddities may be disappointed – instead, the kitchen deals in unchallenging dishes for special occasions, at unrepentant special-occasion prices: weighing in at £58, the ‘glorious’ Peking duck (carved tableside and served in two stages) is a guaranteed conversation stopper. Luxe dim sum grab the limelight at lunchtime (think baked pork puffs in chinkiang vinegar sauce), while the carte promises the likes of ‘red lantern’ (soft-shell crab with Szechuan dried chilli), crispy deboned lamb ribs and, less impressively, an overly astringent assembly of chilled sliced scallops with pomelo segments. Hutong also wows the crowds with its spectacular views, superb bar, dark latticework interiors and ‘sultry Sex and The City vibe’.

  1. I made a lunch reservation at Hutong a couple of weeks in advance but at the last minute my friend had to cancel because of work. Luckily, my sister was free and after getting my friends blessing (and disappointment that he couldn’t go), my sister and I rocked up to the 33rd floor of the Shard. We were met by friendly service and of course, amazing views of London. We had first class seats, right by the window looking out onto the river and trains wizzing in and out of London Bridge station. We couldn’t have asked for a better backdrop to our meal. At lunch, Hutong have a dim sum set menu, where you can choose five...

    Foodoholism :: Hutong at The Shard - Foodoholism

    Hutong London, a restaurant located on the 33rd floor of The Shard, is the younger sister of the well-established in The Hutong restaurant in Hong Kong. Diners access the restaurant via a dedicated lift (that also serves Oblix and Aqua Shard) from the base of The Shard.

    The décor uses similar design from the Hong Kong restaurant, there is a strong use of dark wood which reminds you of a cage. I like the wall of lanterns as it leads to the washrooms and you can oversea the other side of the river with the Walkie Talkie building looking right back at you. The restaurant features beautiful views of London (on...
