Taiwan-Style Braised Chicken Fillet & Basil Leaves Casserole
at Li Li (New World Manila Bay)
with SA, EK
EK is passing through town.
Given a choice of dinner venue, she opted for Li Li (see most recently 6.211 Scallops with Broccoli), contrary to the expectation that she’d want to revisit our old favorite hangout spot Tao Yuan (see generally 6.095 DONE) — maybe next time.
The Taiwan-Style Braised Chicken Fillet & Basil Leaves Casserole was okay. Tender chunks of chicken, nicely seasoned in a spicy soy sauce, the basil leaves providing something of a Southeast Asian flavor. Not the best dish of the meal, but certainly the most distinctive.
