Chef Giang said, “Myself and my team are extremely excited to welcome and work with Chef Ken. The essence of dim sum is hand craftsmanship, requiring superb skills and years of training. It is obviously the work of a chef par excellence. Chef Ken’s delectable menu tastes as authentic as the Guangdong flavour.”

Some highlights to look out for are his Fish Roe Bacon Baiyu Siew Mai, Pepper Nine Fish Spring Rolls, Bamboo Mushroom Scallop Soup Dumplings, Sweet Preserved Vegetable and Pork Bun, and Chocolate Walnut Buns.

Stephen Wright, executive assistant manager for Food and Beverages shared, "The dim sum, which means touch the heart, established its presence thousands of years ago and differs 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 the next level of authenticity."

Chef Ken’s signature dishes from Straight Outta Guangdong are available from September 8-17. They are offered for the endless dim sum lunch, or on the à la carte menu for dinner, with prices remaining the same.

Debuting in 2003, Li Bai has made its footprint as one of the finest Chinese restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City, serving the quintessence of Cantonese cuisine.

Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International, Inc., makes it easy for guests to explore, relax, and enjoy the possibilities of travel at nearly 450 hotels in over 70 countries and territories around the world.

Sheraton continues to enhance the brand through innovative guest experiences, differentiating itself through design, multichannel marketing, and a sharp focus on service.

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

These bite-sized dumplings use an array of fresh seafood, meats, and vegetables that are meticulously prepared in a variety of methods and served in bamboo baskets. They can be steamed, fried, or baked, with a range of tasty treats from savoury dumplings, buns, and noodle rolls to sweeter puddings and tarts.
