It’s not hard to see why Hutong is one of the hottest tables in Hong Kong: it has some of the most imaginative food in town. Its beautifully decorated dining room at the top of the dramatic One Peking Road Tower overlooks the entire festival of lights that is the Hong Kong island skyline. Best among the sensational selection of regional Chinese creations are the deboned lamb ribs and the crispy soft-shell crab with dried Sichuan peppers. Subtler dishes include fresh abalone carpaccio marinated in spring-onion oil, and delicate scallops tossed with pomelo. Hutong also hosts Sunday brunch, which features a limitless supply of northern Chinese specialties and free-flowing bubbly.
