Dubai’s DIFC has seen a surge of openings over the past couple of months, and foodies who love Chinese food are in for a treat, as Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant Hutong comes highly recommended.
Hutong is a modern Northern Chinese restaurant and bar is already successful in Hong Kong, as well in the famous Shard in London, Miami and New York and the Dubai restaurant has lot of potential. Hutong opened in Hong Kong nine years ago, was one of the first Chinese restaurants to be awarded a Michelin-star and comes from David Yeo, founder of Aqua Group.
Dishes on Yeo’s menu include signatures from Hong Kong and London, including Red Lantern – crispy soft-shelled crab with dried chilli and the Halibut Red Star Noodle. They will serve dishes that are specially designed for Dubai.
The restaurant is set to open on the ground and first floors of Gate Building 6 and promises “occasionally fiery” dishes and an “elegant space” for the new Chinese restaurant with interiors inspired by The Four Arts of the Qing Dynasty. The indoor restaurant, lounge bar and private dining rooms along with an outdoor terrace will allow guests to book accordingly. The focal point will be a traditional Wishing Tree structure in the centre of the restaurant.
Other new restaurants in the DIFC area include Amazonico, Salt Bae, Marea and Antika.
