Suzhou and zongzi conclude our ‘Double Fifth’ odyssey

Our very special ‘Double Fifth’ menu marking the Dragon Boat Festival is available from today until Monday 2nd June, and the final stop on our culinary tour of China is Suzhou, in the east of the country about 6o miles from Shanghai.

Suzhou is best known for its exquisite gardens and the canal network, now sadly mostly lost to development, for which the city was once known as ‘the Venice of the Orient’. The gardens however remain, and their delicate appearance is reflected in the subtlety of the region’s cuisine.

Mix up our Lo Hei this Chinese New Year

As part of our Chinese New Year celebrations at Hutong we are delighted to bring to London the traditional Lo Hei (撈起) salad.

Lo Hei is a fortune- and prosperity-bringing dish at Chinese New Year. Its origins date back more than 750 years to the days of the Song Dynasty, when fishermen along the coast of China would celebrate the seventh day of Chinese New Year, known as Renri or ‘everyone’s birthday’, with this fresh fish and diced vegetable dish.
