“My passion for my craft helps me express my creative side in the kitchen. Developing new dishes, experimenting with unique flavors, utilizing unconventional ingredients and creating visually stimulating presentations help me bring my own personality into Li Li through the authentic and unique characteristic of each dish,” said Chef Raymond.

As the Executive Chinese Chef for Li Li, Chef Raymond will ensure that the restaurant’s quality and standards are maintained by overseeing the consistent implementation of the approved menu and training the culinary team in the preparation and presentation of each and every dish.
