Hutong - Location, Location, Location Is Not Always The Case

The huge array of bird cage and beautiful carved wood panel makes you feel instantly in vintage China era and makes you almost forget the breathtaking harbor views. The authentic atmosphere and one Michelin star Cantonese restaurant, however, fail to deliver some impressive dishes. Unsure with which dishes to choose, we trusted the "Hutong's signature dishes" all the way, from starter to main entrees. I've had taste better Cantonese cuisines before.

chili spiced bamboo clams steeped in chinese rose wine and chili sauce

beef tenderloin wok fried with scallions. plenty of scallions, as you can see. finding the tenderloin is like finding a needle among haystacks. The beef were perfectly seasoned and cooked.

sugar-cane prawns in lemongrass-chili sauce. we adore these pretty looking prawns, but not the taste. so bland was an understatement.

crispy boneless duck served with scallion sauce. my favorite dish among all. the so crispy skin, yet tender duck meat so scrumptious yet so never-ending, at least for the three of us girls.

Presentation wise, dishes look splendid. Location wise, flawless. However, I suggest just come here for the view, and go to the street down at Tsim Sha Tsui Nathan rd. for more delicious and cheap finds.
