Little Valley

in Fortitude Valley

Hatted Little Valley has established quite a reputation for its contemporary, regional Chinese cuisine. Order an on-point cocktail and snap your chopsticks at sophisticated, creative bites like lobster-and-chive har gow (dumplings), roasted pork belly with sweet-and-sour peaches, or East-meets-West Chinese bolognese with nduja XO sauce and prawn floss. Book ahead.

If you're on a tighter budget, opt for the weekday lunch dim sum ($39).
