CHINESE NEW YEAR AT THE SHARD
Saturday 28th January 2017 marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Welcome in the Year of the Rooster with new menus at Hutong and Shangri-La's TĪNG restaurant.
DOUBLE HAPPINESS AT HUTONG
Located on the 33rd floor of The Shard, Hutong is bringing in the new year with a 'Double Happiness' menu. Starting with a Lo Hei mixed seafood salad, dishes include Shanghai wontons in chicken broth, Jasmine tea roasted chciken, Halibut in a spicy chilli broth, Signature Crispy de-boned lamb ribs and Mango pudding.
According to tradition, the meal starts with the host of the table adding the condiments of the Lo Hei salad in order, before everyone at the table takes their chopsticks and tosses the salad, calling out “Lo Hei!” which means “to mix it up” but also sounds like “to prosper more and more”. The higher you toss the more prosperous you will be!
Dinner will be accompanied with a traditional lion dance, a calligrapher to write well wishes for your New Year, Chinese musicians, noise makers for your table to ward off evil spirits and a red pocket gift for every guest.
