Dolly is a all day dim sum teahouse at Avenue K that is right opposite to twin towers. They specialize in traditional dim sum cooking, but interpreted in its own modern way with exclusiveness and delicacy. With bamboo baskets hanging around, colourful drawings on walls and a glassware looking environment, it provides an artistic ambience to enjoy such exquisitely made dim sum.
To start, the most ordinary looking yam puff is filled with mashed taro and sliced veggies. A deep fried dumpling is made abnormally with wasabi dressed shrimps, which is surprisingly well done!
Favourite is definitely their signature salted fish bun. Seared with golden brown bottom, stuffed with fish paste with an added note of cilantro leaves.
A resemblance of barbecue pork puff is instead made with chicken and sweetly glazed thin pastry.
Whilst the plate of Thai style fried rice tastes sweet and a little sour, it is however a bit sticky as well.
We end with a refreshing cup of pomegranate infused mocktail, the bright red jasmine tea.
For a budget friendly brunch, Dolly will be a good one.
