Hyatt Regency Manila’s Li Li Restaurant: A Delectable Dim Sum Lunch

At the heart of this historical city lies a chronicled restaurant in a renowned hotel: the Li Li Restaurant at Hyatt Regency Manila. Inspired and named after a woman named Li Li, the signature fine Chinese dining locale  of the Hyatt Regency Manila can bring you a heightened dining experience of East Asian cuisine, especially through their dim sum lunch.

Thanks to the team of Hyatt Regency Manila, we got to try out the food at Li Li Restaurant ourselves in probably the most delectable dim sum lunch I have ever eaten!

Upon stepping out of the elevator that shortly leads to the Li Li Restaurant‘s receiving area, everything screams of ‘elegance’. From the breathtaking large Swarovski chandelier to the beautiful pieces of furniture, I tried to bring out the ‘fine’ person in me by not bumping into anything in the room hahaha! It felt as if we were in a set of The Wolverine when he was in Japan and had a meeting with a highly-regarded Japanese man. But really, one will truly appreciate the vibe that the overall interiors have created for the restaurant.

Thanks to Sir Joshua for the tour!

During the brief restaurant tour with Sir Joshua, he shared to us that Li Li once belonged to the elite and sophisticated Chinese society and then developed an exquisite taste for cuisine, art and culture, thanks to her life in Hong Kong and transfer to Europe where she lived her married life. Upon her return to Asia, she pursued another interest: to be a restaurateur. These experiences inspired her to create a place where they could host their friends and enjoy Cantonese cuisine at its finest. This is reflected in the five (5) rooms in Li Li, namely, the Wine Cellar, the Drawing Room, the Library, Fei Fei and Bi Ling (her two daughters).
