Like the Hong Kong original (on the 28th Floor of One Peking), Hutong in London occupies a lofty spot, high up on the 33rd floor of The Shard, London's tallest building. Hutong is a restaurant with a view - even the loos have that view. David Yeo's Chinese restaurant is, according to Jay Rayner writing in the Guardian, a "high-end take on the fiery food of northern China". Yes, the prices may be "a poke in the eye from a chopstick dipped in salty Korean chilli sauce" (Jay Rayner), "but the views from The Shard are undeniably worth it", writes Matthew Norman in The Telegraph. Established in Hong Kong in 2006, the restaurant is well known for its sophisticated Northern Chinese flavours including dishes of braised beef rib wrapped in lotus leaf, crispy de-boned lamb rib, soft shell crabs in spicy peppers and crispy Peking mutton. The interior is decorated with traditional Chinese red lanterns, hand-carved wood-panelled 'Moon Gates', and a wall of tiled tea bricks (compressed dried Chinese tea) while vintage 1940s tea canisters are a nod to the link between China and London and its old tea warehouses. One of two restaurants in the Shard operated by Yeo's Aqua Group, Hutong sits above Aqua Shard which serves a modern British menu on the 31st level of the skyscraper building.
