Capital B.B.Q. and Dim Sum Express, which is the take-out store located right next to Capital, the proper sit-down restaurant at Diamond Jamboree, is where you can you can bypass the lines and the formality and just get to the dim sum. There, next to troughs that keep the orange chicken warm, are stacks upon stacks of metal steam baskets. This is the same stuff they push around in the carts at the restaurant. Among the usual repertoire of fat shumai and har gow with translucent skin, you'll also find frilly white tripe in a luscious sauce spiked with ginger; steamed buns with ruddy BBQ pork peeking out; and even chicken feet, if you're so inclined. Even better are the pineapple buns--soft pillowy things with sweet-crumbly tops and a jam-like filling that floods your mouth with a fruity-sugary ooze.
