SquareMeal Review of Hutong at The Shard (bar)

The spectacular nocturnal panorama visible from The Shard is definitely London, but the bar at its new northern Chinese restaurant, Hutong, is so dimly lit that you might imagine yourself caught in a power cut at owner David Yeo’s Hong Kong original. However, sharp mixology should crank up your generator in no time – any list that employs medicinal herbs and plants in its ‘cocktail cures’ is worth attention. Star anise – good for asthma, insomnia, bronchitis, etc – appears in a signature Cognac, kumquat, Grand Marnier and tamarind crusta. Elsewhere, a shot of Tequila, Midori melon liqueur and lime with added kiwi fruit apparently keeps one’s gums in good nick, while the Pu-erh tea in a Taoist blossom (Monkey Shoulder whisky, plum wine and Branca Menta) is claimed to combat flu – so ditch the Lemsip and head to the Shard should you feel shivery.
