Don't you just love it when something exceeds your expectations? A few weeks ago, the family decided to have our Sunday lunch at LiLi in Hyatt Hotel. When I was told of the plan to dine there, I did my best not to roll my eyes because well, surprise surprise... We're having Chinese food! Again. *sigh* But all was not lost... Things started to perk up when we found out that they had a dimsum buffet promo (yay!) I've heard good things about LiLi's dimsum, and now was the chance for me to try them all!

How Li Li's dimsum buffet works: Indicate the number of pieces you want on the box beside each order. If no box is present, it means that the item is already in the buffet table. I love this concept because the other dimsum buffets are usually on an order-only basis (which oftentimes takes a long, long time to arrive). It just so happens that we were a bunch of hungry people, and having the other dishes already set up on the buffet table means that we can eat as soon as we sit down.

Okay, forgive me for this, but I was not able to take down notes on which was which. Everyone was just too hungry - I count myself lucky that I was even able to take photos first before everyone devoured everything! LOL! Just enjoy the food porn :)
...and as if we're not full enough, this is what the dessert station looks like:
The verdict? It's not often that we find everything in the buffet delicious, but in this case, we did! And it's not because we were hungry - everything really was superb. Absolutely no scrimping on the ingredients here; the servings were big and scrumptious (and unlimited!). And as if that's not enough, they also offer unlimited sodas, iced tea and local beers. Need I say more? Oh yes, before I forget, calling all Citibank credit cardholders: enjoy 30% off on the Li Li dimsum lunch buffet from now till the end of November. So hurry book your tables now and enjoy! 5 out of 5 stars!
