The Ritz-Carlton’s award-winning Chinese restaurant excels at pairing bite-sized snacks with loose leaf teas
“Sundays are for dim sum,” begins a quote by Chinese-American food personality Eddie Huang. “While the rest of American goes to church, Sunday School or NFL games, you can find Chinese people eating Cantonese food.” Extending to our part of the world, this truism makes for one of our favourite traditions at Li Yen. The Ritz-Carlton’s award-winning Chinese restaurant excels at pairing bite-sized snacks with loose leaf teas, but don’t overlook the à la carte menu—to do so would be to miss out on Li Yen’s Signature Bean Curd with Spinach, Spare Ribs with Salt and Pepper, Chicken with XO Sauce, and other lip-smacking dishes. The thoughtful timing of the dishes and little touches such as complimentary sides of candied walnuts and pickled shallots are things that bring us back to Li Yen time and again.
