Dim sum is an important part of our menu at Hutong, in particular for our lunch service. Dim sum is a traditional Chinese cuisine that originated in Southern China but each region now has its own distinct array of dim sum.

Guests joining us to celebrate Chinese New Year on Thursday 19th February will be able to enjoy a very special dish as part of the evening's 'Double Happiness' menu - this traditional Lo Hei (撈起) salad.

Lo Hei is a fortune- and prosperity-bringing dish especially popular at Chinese New Year. Its origins date back more than 750 years to the days of the Song Dynasty, when fishermen along the coast of China would celebrate the seventh day of Chinese New Year, known as Renri or ‘everyone’s birthday’, with this fresh fish and diced vegetable dish.

Our Lo Hei consists of salmon, yellow tail and shredded abalone served on a colourful bed of assorted vegetables, with six special condiments – dried shrimp, dried conpoy, sesame seeds, lemon juice, pomelo segments and sweet plum sauce.

According to tradition, the host of the table adds the condiments in order and then 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!

Lo Hei is being served as part of the Double Happiness menu (£88) available only on Chinese New Year, Thursday 19th February. To see our Chinese New Year menu and to book, please visit www.hutong.co.uk
