better than the network!

i love nbc (the channel), but i love the restaurant even more! Everytime we visit our grandparents, we tend to eat at few places, but primarily NBC restaurant (not that we complain!). Even though we came the lunch following Thanksgiving, we didn’t really hold back on the eating.

Now the specifics… the restaurant itself is HUGE and there are tons of tables. It looks nice, but due to its largeness, the noise can get kind of loud. On busy days, even though it is large, there can be a bit of a wait. There is a reason for this wait though, and it is top notch dim sum. They have a large variety, and a ton of carts going around. We literally had 3-5 dishes after we sat down (see dishes below). The food quality and price overcomes the noise problem.

From previous experiences, the dinner is also good. They have a spectacular crab dish, where there are flashy lights in the crab’s shell for the eyes! NBC is just that versatile.

Baked BBQ Pork Bun

My favorite dim sum. Sticky and meaty. Also makes a good snack.

Pork Sil Myl

Always confused what the name of this dish is in english. Good.

Baked Egg Tart

Small, but good blend of custardiness and flakiness.

Shrimp Har Gow

Much better than other shrimp dumplings. There are tons of shrimp in a little ball.

Sesame and BBQ Pork Puff

Tastiness! Flaky, not too buttery, and meaty.

Shrimp Rice Noodle

Standard.

Steamed Chicken Buns

Better than other chicken buns. The bread and chicken is great. There is also sausage in it.

one of the best dim sum places ever

NBC definitely rates as one of my favorite Chinese restaurants. They have a huge variety of dim sum, and they are all really tasty. I could go into detail about certain dishes, but I have different preferences, and all of them are delicious anyways. It is also really cool how customers can order large amounts of dim sum to go, so they have a store of food at home or don’t want to eat there. Safe to say, this service is abused. =D

If you come here at dinner time, when there is no dim sum, they still have good food. Most of the dishes are traditional Chinese dishes, but me and family got a flashy, expensive crab dish. They put blinking lights for eyes on the shell! It was also very delicious, especially the crab noodles.
Anyways, if you like Chinese food at all, this is the place to go, although the location isn’t the best and there is always a wait.

MPK at its best. This place is regularly packed and ridiculously packed on the weekends. Known for their great dim sum and fairly decent prices, NBC is what cheap/good chinese MPK food is all about. It is probably one of the most popular dim sum places in the real asian ghetto.

This MPK staple has been around for years, weathering the difficult and ultra competitive environment that is MPK. Only the best of the best survive in the asian culinary materpiece that is the MPK restuarant. MPKers are known for their discerning palates and many a restaurant has sucumbed to moving elsewhere or closure for serving less than stellar food.

The regular menu items at this place are great as well, and seafood items reign supreme.

consistently awesome dim sum

i’ve tried my fair share of dim sum restaurants over the years, and NBC is by far one of the best. somehow, consistently fresh, tasty, and offering a wide variety of dishes. you get the true dim sum experience with the carts. its best to go in large groups so that you can try a whole lot of everything.

the place is remodeling now, expanding its already huge multi-room location so parking can be a bit of a pain. despite its expansive size, there always manages to be a long wait on the weekends.

it seems that whenever i try a dim sum place, i inevitably compare it to NBC and nothing ever manages to come close.

i’ve eaten at ocean…i thought NBC was better.

My all time favorite dim sum place!

I LOVE this place!!! I have been coming here for over 20 years...ever since I was a kid. I have brought several non-asian friends to this place and they all love it as well. We have lots of banquet meals and large dinners here for…
