It was date night, and K wanted to take me to this place that had good Hainanese Chicken on Broadway, but as it turns out the place was closed so we decided to go for a stroll.
That was when we came across Hu Tong, The exterior reminded us of those "old towns" in Taiwan, we didn't think much about it but the smell was what caught our attention. If you weren't hungry to begin with, the aroma of the food will make you hungry. K and I both have never had traditional Beijing food so we decided to give it a go.
K is a fan of really traditional Chinese decor, if he had a house this may be what he would want it to look like.
Bacardi cups for water? Why not?!
Spinach with Peanuts and Sesame Seeds
The waitress made it sound so saucy, but in reality it was kind of sour and did not see any sauce, was upsold.
Lamb Hot Pot
We were told this may not be enough for people, but it was more than enough for us, intact we had leftovers to take home.

Conclusion: Can be a little pricey, but everywhere you go for "traditional food" is a little pricey. I would most likely come back again sometime.
