HUTONG LAUNCHES SATURDAY BRUNCH ON UAE NATIONAL DAY WEEKEND

A spectacular new weekend experience at one of Dubai’s hottest dining destinations 

24th November 2020 – Dubai, UAE: Hutong, the contemporary Northern Chinese restaurant and bar located in the DIFC, is excited to introduce a new Saturday Brunch, designed to complement the success of the Friday event with a more family-orientated ambiance. The new offer will launch on Saturday 5th December, coinciding with celebrations around the UAE’s 49th National Day. To further mark the occasion, Hutong will be serving a special edition Dim Sum Platter showcasing the colours of the UAE flag during lunch and dinner throughout the week, while the iconic wishing tree in the centre of the restaurant will be adorned with wishing cards featuring the flag.

Enjoyed inside or outdoors on Hutong’s relaxed outdoor garden terrace, Saturday brunch is a yet social event, with the weekend mood elevated with a live saxophonist and ambient beats from DJ Ivan Minuti. Diners can indulge in free-flow dim sum, named amongst the best in Manhattan by Pete Wells of The New York Times, along with a wide selection of fifteen dishes including Hutong’s Fresh Hammour, theatrically cooked at the table on a black stone. Other stars on the menu include the delicate but indulgent Wild Mushroom & Truffle Bao, beautifully crafted to look like real mushrooms and the Hutong Dan Dan Noodles, a classic Sichuan dish served in a spicy minced lamb, sesame and peanut broth. For a sweet finish guests will be treated to an assortment of signature desserts, paired with ice-cream and sorbets.

Hutong’s innovative cocktail and mocktail list complements the free-flow dim sum, with several beverage packages on offer. Mocktails include the Mr. Yang, made with activated charcoal strawberry jam, lime juice and tonic water, or the Red Crowned Crane, with grapefruit sherbet, tea syrup, citric orange and soda.

Those looking to celebrate the start of the weekend party style can step things up and head to Hutong’s Dim Sum Friday brunch, with free-flow cocktails and extraordinary entertainment for an elegant and energized afternoon.

Uplifting, entertaining and delicious, Hutong’s choice of two brunches are the perfect setting to celebrate an unforgettable weekend with family and friends.
