Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant at Sheraton Towers Singapore is renowned for its exquisite Cantonese cuisine. I have tried most of the dim sum places in town, but for some reason, I have never been to Li Bai. When my friends asked me to suggest a place for brunch, I immediately replied: let’s go to Li Bai.
For appetisers, you might want to consider the deep-fried crispy cuttlefish ($8), roast pork and roast duck ($10), and drunken chicken with jellyfish ($8). We couldn’t resist, so we got all of them to start.
I was disappointed that they did not have my favourite salted egg yolk custard bun on the menu, but the presence of baked barbecued pork pastry ($4.80 for 3 pieces) helped to soften the blow.
We also had steamed shrimp dumplings with bamboo shoot ($7.20 for 4 pieces), xiaolongbao with pork and crabmeat ($5.40 for 3 pieces). stir-fried radish cake ($6.80), deep-fried crispy prawn with mango ($6.90 for 3 pieces), baked mini egg tarts ($3.60 for 3 pieces), steamed crystal dumplings ($4.80 for 3 pieces), and deep-fried scallop rolls ($6.60). Everything was well-executed.
All in all, Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant has competent dim sum. Don’t come here expecting life-changing siew mai and har gau, but come here if you want consistent good Chinese food.
