Good Mong Kok Bakery is a popular spot for homemade dim sum and baked goods in this tiny shop. They are located in Chinatown in San Francisco. As we arrived on a weekend in the morning, there was already a long line up. Since we wanted a small snack and had some time to kill, we thought we would give this place a try.
Don’t forget to bring cash.
Everyone self-organizes themselves into a line, so you just need to ask around to find the end of the line. The line up was long when we were here but it moved at a decent pace.
The space is very small and cramped inside and it is to go only as there are no seats. Dim Sum and buns are pumped out constantly from the shop. When you get your order, don’t forget to ask for utensils if you’re eating it nearby.
If you come later in the afternoon, they sell out of popular items so don’t come here too late or else you’ll be out of luck.
Shrimp and Chive Dumplings
It comes with 3 pieces each and it’s very very affordable. The skin was a bit thicker than what I normally like, but the shrimp and chive filling inside was good.
Sticky Rice Ball
The big round thing on the right side if a big ball stuffed with sticky rice. Something interesting that I haven’t seen that often.
BBQ Pork Bun
The BBQ pork bun was big and had a good amount of filling. Sweet and meaty. Highly Recommended.
Overall, I thought this Good Mong Kok Bakery was ok because I come from a city that has some of the best Dim Sum in the world. If you’ve never had dim sum before, you’ll enjoy this place. Just know its not very typical to have dim sum for take out. I personally prefer to sit down at a restaurant to have dim sum.
