    Meaning “little house” or “resting place” inspired by Northern Chinese “Hutongs,” guests can bond together and at the same time partake of authentic Northern Chinese cuisine when dining here. Originally, a “Hutong” is a part of Beijing’s rich history and culture, wherein the community gathers to catch up and strengthen relations in a lane formed by rows of gray-tiled houses and buildings.

    Jing Ting showcases Northern Chinese cuisine, which is rich, bold and savory, comprising mostly of meat combined with wheat-based dumplings and noodles. A generous use of seasoning and spices such as vinegar, garlic, coriander, leeks, and salt makes for richer flavors and aromas, and cooking methods are done through boiling, braising, stewing, steaming, roasting, glazing, deep-frying or stir-frying.
