Despite the atrociously horrible weather condition last middle week of June, I still managed to storm Market Cafe at the Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila.
Now, I have weathered the despicably horrid Malate traffic just to go to the Yam Cha Buffet Sunday at Li Li Restaurant, Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila's signature Cantonese restaurant famous for their Chinese imperial delicacies whipped up in the highest regard for quality.
I have been to a plurality of authentic Chinese restaurants and Seafood Houses and had a zenith of my dining experience especially at Peking Garden, Greenbelt 5 but Li Li Restaurant toppled all that. At Li Li, every detail of preparation from the traditional Gong Fu Tea Ceremony to the actual food presentation, from the exquisite details of the furnitures to the dining increments like spoon, fork and chopsticks, are all splendidly done in the finest artistry.
The restaurant interior is very classy, it is like walking drown to a visual nirvana. Descending down from the spiffy stairs, it has a residential feel of some sort, having the receiving lounge, the dining are, as library and a wine cellar.
Boiled peanuts and a Guava Iced Tea awaits you once you come in.
A courtesy Deep-fried Taro and Assorted Seafood Dumpling is their welcome treat.
Honey-Roasted Spare Ribs.
Barbecued Pork Belly.
Soya Sauce Chicken.
Pig's Knuckle and Jelly Fish.
Beijing-style Wok-Fried Pork Dumpling.
Fruit Medley. :)
They even have a Chocolate Fountain.
I don't know how this is called but this taste like a mantao bun with a sweet filing inside.
And more sweets.
Mushroom Jelly and some other sweets.
Utensils. Let's see what I got on my table.
Pan-Fried Garoupa Fillet in Chilli Garlic and Coconut Sauce.
