Hakaw, siomai, taro puff and bean curd roll, just to name a few of our dim sum staples. May it be with our family, friends, or just us, during random eat outs or special occasions, having dim sum is always an option. That’s how much we love and enjoy it.

A big YES! Keep on reading to find out why.
Li Li’s Dim Sum All-You-Can Lunch!
Started our Li Li’s EATSperience with this light and flavorful fish soup. We enjoyed it warm and comforting taste so much! Perfect way to warm our tummies up before attacking Li Li’s dim sum.
Juicy, sweet, and savory! We don’t know about you guys but this is one of the best bbq pork in town. Just look at that glaze and how tasty it looks. We never fail to have this whenever we dine at Li Li because it’s sooooo good!
Just the right fat and meat ratio with an amazingly crispy skin! We almost ordered another serving of this because it was really delicious. If you love roasted pork belly, you will surely enjoy having this one!
Fluffy and moist “rabbit” bun loaded with fragrant black truffle and mushroom! Baby Eats didn’t recognize it at first but when she took a closer look she found it too cute to eat, hehe! That’s why it was us who ate this cute dim sum and it was such a delight to have. Well done, Li Li!
We always order these plump and juicy shrimp dumplings. It’s definitely one of our all-time favorite dim sum item ever! With it being prepared a la carte, the wrapper is still in pretty good shape and not soggy at all which is very good. Good stuff!
Generous amount of silky and smooth scallops in every bite, with that much needed crunch from the aspagarus. Just like the hakaw, the wrapper was really fresh and it kept the filling really intact.
We had a different style of steamed bean curd roll. Li Li’s version has beef and egg white sauce. Which we found interesting as it was different from what we were used to. The egg white sauce gave a thick texture to the slices of bean curd. Don’t worry, it’s very good, too!
Perfectly deep fried shrimp Chinese toast. Not greasy and oily at all and we were able to have that crisp and juicy texture in every bite.
This dim sum is a MUST whenever we would have a dim sum feast. It is a big favorite of our food-loving family, yes, including Baby Eats! The taro and seafood dumpling gave so much flavor that we didn’t need a dipping sauce. We had 2 servings of this awesome dim sum. Because for us, one serving will never be enough. Haha!
One of the best if not the best in town! Ever since we have tried it the first time, the quality hasn’t changed. This Puff Pastry BBQ Pork is still the star of Li Li’s dim sum menu. How about that for consistency!
Another deep fried dim sum that didn’t make our lips shine (if you know what we mean). Filled with meat, this crispy wonton was perfect for us to snack on while we waited for the other dim sum dishes.
Deep fried dumpling with pork and chicken, or commonly known as Ham Sui Kok, is another big favorite from Li Li. Imagine a glutinous rice filled with meat then deep fried. There’s chewy, juicy and crispy written all over every piece.
Huge blocks of crispy pan fried radish cake that still remained soft and fluffy on the inside. Eaten best with some hoisin sauce for that added sweet and salty taste.
Aside from all the dim sum choices, Li Li also has some tasty mains from the wok station in its all-you-can-eat menu. Our all-time favorite is the Sweet and Sour Pork! Who doesn’t love crispy and juicy pork smothered with the perfect balance of sweet and sour flavors, right?! Gotta have this every single time at Li Li!
To go along with all the savory pork dishes that we ordered and to satisfy Baby Eats’ craving, we also got this super fragrant and tasty fried rice. We would never skip rice whenever we have Chinese food. It’s really a must every single time!
Li Li’s dim sum all-you-can-eat dessert menu has 3 choices. Since we have tried 2 out of the 3, we decided to order something that is not on the menu yet one of their best-selling dessert. An unconventional mango pudding dessert. The mango pudding was superb! We really tasted the naturally sweet flavor of the mango and we loved that this dessert goes with 2 different sauces. Mango sauce and cream sauce. If you want to add some to your pudding, please do, as it will give you a lip-smackin’ EATSperience!
Priced at Php 1,088 nett per person, from Monday–Saturday, Li Li’s all-you-can-eat dim sum is available during lunch time only. Good enough to stuff diners for the whole day. With the quality, choices and price, we find this promotion really worth every peso. As early as now we are looking forward to the next birthday celebration in our family so that we get to have another dim sum feast at our favorite dim sum place in the Metro. If you are into dim sum like us, check out Li Li in AG New World Manila Bay and make it a part of your dining EATSperience. That’s it for this edition of EATSplroations, ’till next time!
