Dim sum is often a meaty affair, with few options for vegetarians, or those trying to reduce their intake of cholesterol.

While plant-based dim sum can be found in Singapore, not many restaurants have a large selection of steamed and fried vegetarian dim sum dishes.

A new outlet by Lotus Vegetarian at Royal [email protected], might just change that.

Dim sum served from 11am to 5pm

The restaurant, which announced that it is set to open on Friday (Nov. 20), will be dishing out a selection of dim sum and main dishes, such as mapo tofu.

According to their announcement on Facebook, they will only be serving dim sum from 11am to 5pm.

Dim sum will not be available during dinner from 5.30pm to 9.30pm.

Here are two screenshots of some of the dishes they will offer, such as Ma La Crystal Dumplings (S$4.80), Veggie Siew Mai (S$4.20) and Veggie Scallop Yam Dumplings (S$5.80):
