a classy, intimate, and impressive place
Li Li's lunch dimsum buffet is offered at the price of P888 net per person. Actually it's not all dimsum, this buffet also includes Barbecued Pork Belly, Fried Rice with Pork and Veggies, and Stir Fried Veggies.

the geisha-like ladies served us Oolong tea. super like!
Guava Iced Tea
i never like guavas, but this iced tea with guava puree is excellent! unfortunately, this is not included in the buffet but - if you mention my name when you dine here, you'll get this guava iced tea for free!
Hot and Sour Soup with generous amount of Assorted Seafood
a good way to start the buffet
actually I used these as side dishes ^_^
fish are friends, not food.. ^_^
Baked Barbecue Pastry Puff
Deep Fried Mashed Taro Puff with Chicken
Steamed Crabmeat Dumpling with Black Mushroom
Deep Fried Becho-Becho Shrimp with Wasabi Mayonnaise
Steamed Pork and Shrimp Dumpling with Fish Roe
yes, it's the classic siomai.
Pan Fried Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp
..and the bird-shaped piece is edible!
My Favorite 3
Top 3 - Steamed Shrimp Dumpling
it's always a delight when a good tasting hakaw is included in a buffet.
Top 2 - Steamed Fresh Scallop Dumpling
heavenly! i love hakaw, but i love scallops more!
Top 1 - Steamed Shrimp, Dried Seaweeds Roll, Asparagus, Fish Roe
this is the most ultimate dimsum i tasted - like ever! (arte much)
seriously, the combination is excellent! i will come back at LiLi's for this one.
Li Li also offers ala carte servings of these dimsums. But if you're a big eater of dimsums, it's just much better to avail the buffet instead. Mas sulit!
on my plate: the spinach dumpling, xiao long bao, my favorite asparagus and seaweed dumpling, siomai, and crabmeat dumplings
my favorite scallop and asparagus roll dumpling, with baked pastry and taro puff
And since this an Eat-All-You-Can session, I never felt guilty ordering for more dumplings!
For dessert, we had these items for a sweeter ending.
Sesame Balls with White Belgian Chocolate
omg, this is really very good! i never liked buchi, but this one's to die for!
Chilled Mango Sango with Almond Jelly
Im very full and satisfied as we left Li Li's. No wonder, Chinese and Chinoys frequent this place for an authentic Chinese buffet experience. The restaurants in Hyatt Hotel and Casino are great, I can't wait to also try The Fireplace, their steakhouse restaurant.
