For those working near Avenue K, halal dim sum specialist Dolly Dim Sum offers a letup from the usual lunch options. Take your business lunch down here for good nosh amidst stylish surroundings — the quaint bird cage-chandeliers and checkered glass panels are to thank for the restaurant's Instagram fame. Buns are done right, so be sure to share the Egg Custard Bun (RM7) or the Roasted BBQ Bun (RM8) with scrumptious chicken char siew filling — it comes very close to the real thing. Ordering siew mai goes without saying and their version of 'Siew Mai' Dumpling (RM8.80) is impressive, bouncing with tender chicken and prawns. Follow with a Glutinous Rice Parcel 'Loh Mai Gai' (RM8.50) that improves on the common recipe with a grand addition of abalone. Pro tip: The highly sought-after locale swarms with diners at lunch hour so call ahead for a table. However, they do not take reservations on Fridays so show up early instead.
Avg price per person: RM25
