We usually go during weekends, it’s packed but it doesn’t really matter as their numbering system is pretty efficient. When the restaurant is getting full, they will send someone to distribute number at the entrance, no one is allowed to go in without the number being called. First thing first, collect a number and wait for the number to be called.
Usually it takes less than 30mins waiting time. It has a spacious dining hall that could easily fit in thousands of people. Apart from dim sum, wedding dinners and other functions are held during peak seasons. Dim sum is served from morning to noon with only 1/3 of the section being open. I brought Kobayashi here once, and he really likes the atmosphere especially when he saw the waiter pushing the dim sum cart around, he got so excited with it. Beside the standard Har Gao Shiu Mai, steamed spare ribs and chicken feet are another treasures of Min Kok which you could find it served on most tables. I'm particular about the odour of frozen dim sum, that's the reason why I like Min Kok. Prawn roll wrapped in thin Fu Zhu (腐竹Tofu Skin) deep fried to golden crisp is best to go with mayo dip. Yam puff served in three, the filling was delish! In my opinion, dim sum master is not a good dim sum master if he could not make decent char siu bao! A good char siu bao must meet the below criterias
1.) soft fluffy dough
2.) juicy char siu's fillingPorridge, of course you have better choice in other place, so my advice is, "no harm to skip it!" A lot of my friends in Seremban told me, egg tart is the best selling item of Min Kok, true enough, it's always sold out before noon. Personally I find the egg filling is sweeter as compared to Tong Kee's one. If you have a sweet teeth, this sesame ball that made of peanut filling is another worth trying item. It's aromatic with slightly chewy outer layer entitles it as another treasure of Min Kok. Dim Sum prices here range from RM2.50 to 4.50, below is the break down;
