WHY GO

With its award-win­ning Can­tonese cui­sine, el­e­gant set­ting and ex­ten­sive menu, Li Yen has long been popular with the city’s well-heeled set, es­pe­cially for its ex­quis­ite dim sum lunches.

TATLER TIPS

Dou­ble-boiled soups are a spe­cial­ity here and come with a pleas­ing va­ri­ety. Roasted meats are an­other must-have, es­pe­cially the ex­cel­lent crispy pork.

• Savour the sig­na­ture Im­pe­rial Jew­els, con­sist­ing of juicy pan-fried scal­lop with a sin­fully de­li­cious salted egg yolk sauce.

• We rec­om­mend the cod­fish pre­pared two ways— deep-fried with crunchy skin , and steamed with a lighter silky tex­ture.

• Meat lovers will en­joy the deep-fried spare ribs that are crunchy on the out­side and ten­der in­side, and nicely com­ple­mented by a thick black vine­gar sauce.
