HCM CITY — Cantonese guest Chef Ken from Man Ho Restaurant, JW Marriott Hotel Sanya Dadonghai Bay has arrived in Saigon for the authentic Cantonese dim sum event titled Straight Outta Guangdong, the latest addition of the Straight Outta Asia International Guest Chef series bringing the many flavours of Asia to Saigon.

Held at Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers, the offering highlights the collaboration between two flagship Cantonese restaurants, Li Bai and Man Ho, for an authentic Cantonese dim sum experience.

Originating from Guangdong Province, dim sum has evolved from a tea ritual along the Silk Road to a staple of Cantonese cuisine that delights gastronomes’ taste buds across the globe.

Dim sum accompanied by tea is referred to as yum cha culture, a common social gathering typically at lunchtime. Each order of dim sum usually contains a variety of items in bamboo towers for sharing.

Hailing straight from the JW Marriott Hotel Sanya Dadonghai Bay and representing its award-winning established Cantonese restaurant Man Ho, the international Cantonese dim sum Master Chef Ken enjoys more than 30 years of dim sum mastery and joins our in-house team of culinarians to host an innovative dim sum pairing concept, serving up authentic Cantonese cuisine that spotlights quality ingredients and time-honored techniques.

Li Bai restaurant invites dim sum gastronomes to try these mouth-watering delicate bites, handcrafted and expertly prepared by Chef Ken.

Some highlights to look out for are the chef's fish roe bacon baiyu siew mai; pepper nine fish spring rolls; bamboo fungus scallop soup dumpling; sweet preserved vegetable and pork bun; and chocolate walnut buns.

“Dim sum, which means ‘touch the heart’, was present thousands of years ago and differed from country to country. However, the ethos behind dim sum remains the same: good times and good food for people you love. With Straight Outta Guangdong, Li Bai and Man Ho’s expertise come together to bring dim sum to the next level with its authenticity," said Stephen Wright, executive assistant manager food & beverage.

Chef Ken’s signature dishes from Straight Outta Guangdong are available until September 17 and are offered with the endless dim sum lunch or dinner à la carte menu, while the prices remain the same.

Li Bai is located on Level 2, Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers, 80 Đông Du Street, HCM City’s District 1. For reservations, call 028 35219148 or log on https://www.facebook.com/LiBaiBySheratonSaigon. — VNS
