Yes, you read that right. Despite the fact that we always have Chinese food at home and most, if not all, of our family gatherings are held in Chinese restaurants, I tend to choose a basket of dimsum over a slice of pizza anyday.
It was actually not my first time to dine here. A couple of years ago, I had the privilege to accompany my former boss on one of his monthly restaurant reviews and it just so happen that he invited me to join him at LiLi! I can't remember exactly which dishes we had but all I remembered was they were all delicious and I had a marvelous time admiring Lili's beautiful modern Chinese interiors.
We also had the Pan-Fried Shrimp & Spinach Dumpling which I think was just a-ok. Nothing spectacular about it and I, for one, am not a fan of pan-fried dimsum. Similar to the other dimsum items, the chef at LiLi has made sure that each bite is packed with a good mix of minced shrimp and spinach. It's amazing how flavorful such a small piece can be!
However...I am NOT a quitter...thus I shall go on and eat till the end! *nods solemnly*
That was just a preview of the many dimsum items available at LiLi. i was told that they have a Dimsum-all-you-can promo where for only Php. 788 nett from Monday to Saturday lunch (12nn to 3PM), diners can try LiLi's wide-array for dimsum choices.
On Sunday lunch, they make it extra special where they also offer more Cantonese dishes on top of the dimsum offerings plus desserts and free-flowing iced tea, soft drinks and beer all for only Php. 1,550 nett.
What a deal! Will definitely make time to come back here with Paul soon. :)
LiLi is located at the 5th floor, Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila, 1588 Pedro Gil cor M.H. Del Pilar in Manila City.
