Ching Yeh - Flushing

Saturday night I had to go to Flushing to pick up some
groceries and decided to make a dinner stop at Joe's
Shanghai. I had worked a long day and my girlfriend and
I took a walk up 37th Avenue and entered a restaurant
which I believed was Joe's. My first reaction was that
they refurbished Joe's and took the smell of the fish
tank out. I asked for a table for two and then realized
(when my brain woke up) that this was not Joe's
Shanghai, but Ching Yeh. A believer that mistakes
sometimes cause discoveries, we decided to sit and eat.
We are happy we did. I started with Baby Ribs Soup
which had a bit of spice and a lot of spice. It also
came in a good sized bowl. My girlfirend had
Vegetable Bean Curd Soup which had more of a plain
broth and was full of bean curd and vegetables. Quite
good. We then had Snails with Basil. This had a taste
that I was not used to and it was a bit spicy. After a
while we realized that we fell in love with the dish.
We also had sauteed spinach which had a very light
garlic taste and a very nice light oily sauce. We
enjoyed it. I really look forward to going back to try
some more. So sometimes being tired and stupid pays
