A few weeks back to celebrate our end of year and hitting our company budget, we took the Friday off work, jumped in a taxi, took our MD's credit card and went to celebrate. #hellyeah
We went to Hutong Dumpling Bar on Commercial road - I love dumplings but I wasn't really prepared for the 7 course gestation that was put in front of me! If you're like me and had no idea what that means, in simple terms - They give you 7 rounds of food and with each course there is a glass of wine to suit the taste of food put in front of you. (Yep I consumed 7 glasses of wine within a 4 hour gap)
We started off with a glass of champagne to celebrate - at this stage I didn't realize the amount of wine that would follow ha! The food started rolling out, there is nothing else like food being brought out to you, plate after plate haha.
I will admit - After about plate 3 I was feeling really full and the wine was starting to take affect thank god we were all sitting down that's all I can say. The food at Hutong is perfection, everything was cooked just perfect and the flavors just burst in your mouth
We kicked on and went to the Imperial around the corner, I think this was where we went wrong. Shots left right and center.. By about 6.30 I had to call it in I was not in a state to be around my work mates haha but we were all in the same boat, I felt bad for my Managing Director who had to ride his bike home!
I high tailed it out of there with our receptionist, we were lucky enough to get a taxi from Chapel St. Ill admit I had the window down all the way home haha.
The boyfriend had no idea what had happened when I walked (stumbled) in the door started looking at him and burst out laughing - Worlds worst drunk.
All in all - Hutong is pretty amazing you should defiantly check it out!
Have you been?
What other dumpling bars would you recommend?
