Serving authentic dim sum in a colourful setting, Dolly Dim Sum KL is a contemporary all-day eatery located within Avenue K Shopping Centre (opposite Suria KLCC).A popular breakfast amongst the local Chinese community, dim sum is a collection of three to four bite-sized portions of Cantonese delicacies placed on small saucers, kept hot in bamboo baskets. Served ala carte via a push-cart tray, diners can then choose their orders while still seated at their table.
Situated on the ground floor of Avenue K, Dolly Dim Sum is accessible within a seven-minute walk from the KLCC LRT train station. Dolly Dim Sum is a modern take on the quaint Chinese teahouse with a stunning glass house concept that overlooks KL city while its vibrant interior is a mix of cheerful Oriental paintings, hanging bird cages, warm lighting, as well as Chinese-style furnishing.
Food-wise, Dolly Dim Sum serves freshly-prepared classic favourites such as 'har gau' prawn dumplings (RM9.50), glutinous rice with BBQ chicken, sliced abalone and mushrooms (RM8.50), roasted BBQ buns (RM8), scallop cheong fun with belacan (RM15), kitchen-made fish balls steamed on spinach (RM7.50), and beef balls with mandarin peels (RM8.50). Do note that this is a pork-free eatery, so beef or chicken is substituted in instead.
Also highly recommended is Dolly Dim Sum’s unique fare; the Thai style prawn parcel, which consists of chunky chopped prawns wrapped with gluten skin, topped with sliced shallots, scallion, fresh chillies, and Thai chilli sauce, while Dolly Mozza Roll (RM10.50) is a savoury combination of bean curd rolls stuffed with prawn and melted mozzarella cheese.
For breakfast, dim sum is typically paired with a sip of traditional Chinese tea such as Pu Er, Expo Fo Shou, Expo Lan Hua Siang, Shui Xian, and Qi Li Xian, but Dolly Dim Sum also offers Oriental-inspired cocktails that are great for boozy evenings. Try the signature PuEr Old Fashioned (Makers' Mark and aged Pu Er tea) and tangy Longevity (jasmine-infused gin, fresh lime and lychee liquor).
Although price range is slightly higher than most dim sum eateries in KL, Dolly Dim Sum’s diverse range of dim sum and vibrant ambience has attracted a steady following of local businessmen, expats, and tourists in KLCC and Kuala Lumpur city centre.
