Dim sum is an important part of our menu at Hutong, in particular for our lunch service. Dim sum is a traditional Chinese cuisine that originated in Southern China but each region now has its own distinct array of dim sum.
Delicious, delicate dim sum – steamed, baked or fried savoury dumplings – are traditionally enjoyed at lunchtime and as you would expect, we of course offer a superb complete dim sum menu daily from 12-3 in addition to our a la carte as well as including dim sum in our new set lunch menu. Specialities such as our baked Wagyu puffs, Shanghai-style xiao long bao or Ginger and spring onion lobster buns are perfect as a starter or enjoyed as a meal in themself.
But such is the popularity of our dim sum that we make sure that a selection of the most popular varieties is available at other times too. On the a la carte menu there is our ever-in-demand dim sum platter, two each of four different dim sum including Rosé Champagne shrimp, Vegentable and bamboo pith, Crystal crab meat and Scallop and pumpkin.
