Celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival at Hutong
To celebrate this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls on the 10th September 2022, acclaimed Northern Chinese restaurant Hutong has created a traditional four course tasting menu with optional drinks pairing.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is often regarded as the most important holiday in China after Chinese New Year. Deeply ingrained in Chinese culture, family and friends traditionally come together to celebrate and give thanks to the moon for their successful crop harvest.
Located on level 33 of The Shard, Head Chef Fei Wang and his team have created a special Mid-Autumn Festival dinner menu, available from the 10th-17th September for £98pp. For an additional £47pp, guests can opt for an expertly picked drinks pairing starting with Pommery Brut Royal Champagne before exploring Hutong’s Chinese wines including Château Changyu Moser XV, White Cabernet 2020 and Château Changyu Moser XV, Red Cabernet 2019. Taking inspiration from the Sichuan Province, famed for its fiery spices and peppers, dishes include Tender poached chicken breast with Pi Xian spicy soba noodles, Pan-fried beef tenderloin with bell peppers and Sichuan dried chili and Chilled tofu in salted egg yolk sauce with mixed seafood. For dessert, a special Festival Mooncake has been created to honour the moon goddess, paired with Rhythm, Alphonso Mango Wine. Mooncakes are a Mid-Autumn; their symbolic shape represents reunion and happiness.

The restaurant is named after Beijing’s ancient hutongs – the now fast-disappearing narrow lanes which crisscrossed the city revealing its old family houses, their grand courtyards and life within. Signature dishes include Red Lantern soft-shell crab and Crispy de-boned lamb ribs as well as Roasted Peking duck, considered by many to be the best in London. Hutong’s beautiful Shanghai Bar is the perfect place for cocktails before or after dinner.
