Traditional meets modern at Hutong

Traditional meets modern at Hutong. If you are in Hong Kong and you are looking for traditional Chinese food, accompanied by the “wow” factor of a stunning location, you can’t go wrong with Hutong. In mandaring Hutongs are a type of narrow lanes and alleys, commonly associated with northern Chinese cities, especially Beijing. Opened in 2003 and located on the Kowloon side, on the 28th floor of 1 Peking Road, the restaurant is a reminiscent of an ancient family courtyard in one of Peking’s fast disappearing hutongs. Traditionally crafted wooden doors and chairs, birdcages, red lanterns are accompanied by a stunning view on the Hong Kong Harbor. I personally could not stop taking pictures 😉

Their cuisine is contemporary northern Chinese with inspiration from Sichuan and Shandong provinces, and some traditional Peking dishes. We tried the Feng Wei brunch on a Sunday, with all you can eat Dim Sum (our favorite Dumplings) and signature dishes and just could not stop replenish our plates (and glasses ;-)). It’s was a fun time to spend with the whole family tasting delicious food and wine with a breathtaking view and traditional Chinese arts entertainment. Every 20 minutes a gong sounds and the entire restaurant assembles around the buffet to watch demonstrations of traditional Chinese arts. The face-changing magic of Sichuan opera, the kung fu tea pouring routine and the making of hand-pulled noodles all add to the theatre of this Chinese brunch.

The Hutong Feng Wei brunch is priced at HK$428 per person (about 50Euros or 55USD), +HK$ 200 per person for unlimited drinks (including cocktails and spirits) or an additional HK$280 per person for unlimited Veuve Clicquot Ponsandin 2008. Guess which option we opted for ;-).

Hutong is located on 28/F, One Peking, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. For Reservations : +852 3428 8342. You can check their website by clicking here.
