Dim Sum Fest by Li Li Restaurant At Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila: Siopao & Siomai Food Trip in Style!


Dim Sum Fest by Li Li Restaurant at Hyatt Hotel Casino Manila,


When in Manila and a dim sum fanatic like us but has never tried the Dim Sum Fest at Li Li Restaurant at the Hyatt Hotel Casino Manila, then boy YOU are missing a lot!! Yeah!! Seriously a LOT!!


Like every adventurous foodie in Manila, we too experience those sudden dim sum cravings so we regularly drop by our favorite dim sum place to enjoy our all time favorite siopaos! What is there not to LOVE about dim sum anyway??!! Filipinos have learned to love these soft yummy meat filled buns as well as those silky pearl-like siomais and hakaws!! Oooooohhh la la!!!


For this weekend though, we’ve decided to kick our dim sum trip up a notch higher so we decided to try out the highly acclaimed dim sum Fest at the Hyatt Hotel Casino Manila. Call that eating siopao and siomai in style!!! They got a wide variety of dim sums to choose from!


From  Mondays to Saturdays, Li Li Restaurant offers an all-you-can-eat dim sum for just PHP 788 net per person, available from 12:00noon to 3:00pm.  The fun begins with choosing from a menu featuring a long list of culinary delights.  Each delicacy is freshly cooked and served hot.  So unlike other buffets where all the dishes are on table, in this case, all you have to do is comfortably sit and tell your waiter which dim sum you fancy and they will serve them to you warm and fresh!!!


Here’s what we devoured….



We never thought this humble looking soup  at Li Li Restaurant would be so mind blowing! In all the soups I have tasted this would be the 2nd one which I will never forget! The seafood was ultra fresh and had the right temperature and consistency… simply a masterpiece! (standing ovation!)

And so our dim sum feast began….
