    I've poked around and around and around, looking for some advice about plausible destinations in the northern suburbs for dim sum. Long story short: nothing much. Since, however, there is no specific thread on the subject, I figured I should inquire directly and precisely on point: is there anywhere in the northern suburbs with dim sum "worth" the visit? We're in Evanston and I just don't feel like the trek down to Chinatown. And, given the choice, I'd rather go north than south. (We used to live near Foster/Broadway, so Furama was a frequent destination...but as I said, I'd rather go north....)

    MingHin Rolling Meadows?

    I can't speak for that particular outpost, but we frequent the Naperville operation. The food is nothing earth shattering and there are certainly misses (frozen shumai), but more hits (fried sticky rice, brisket noodle rolls, and of course that Macau pork belly). Like the Chinatown flagship, Naperville is a palatial space and I'd have to imagine the circuses at Rolling Meadows would be similarly opulent.

    I am in the same boat, just moved to Skokie from the city and am looking for good dim sum nearby. I know at one point Koi was serving dim sum, are they still and is it any good? I haven't made it out to the Rolling Meadows MingHin yet.

    no new places to add, just a data point that the rolling meadows MingHin is decent/good (but not great). very busy on weekends though.

    Bumping this topic to see if there is any additional intel. MingHin Rolling meadows decent, haven't been to Koi in Evanston yet but they have the weekend dim sum menu online, which is more promising than before when it wasn't advertised on their website.

    Any other places serving dim sum that is worth a stop in the north burbs?
