I am wondering if you can help me locate a particular dish which used to be served in Flushing on Union street right off Northern next to the High School.
There used to be a restaurant with the entrance below street level called Mei Wei Shiang House (in English letters). The chinese characters on the same awning in front of the restaurant, I am told, phonetically represented the sounds Mee Mee Yong, so the chinese and English names for the same restaurant were different.
This restaurant relocated to this location back in the 80's (it used to be located on Northern Blvd across from the high school) and closed down sometime in the 90's. I was very disappointed when I showed up for dinner one night to discover they were no longer in business. Their 'signature' dish was a noodle with black bean sauce unlike any other black bean sauce I have ever found in any other restaurant. It was a homemade sauce full of onions, pork, not too salty, and a little sweet over home made noodles. Diners also had the option of adding seafood to the black bean sauce which was usually comprised of squid, baby shrimp and other stuff I did not recognize. I still crave that dish years later and am wondering if they opened up elsewhere, and if you have ever come across this dish as it was served at this restaurant.
Another thing I remember about this place was that they would always put dishes of Oshinko (yellow pickled daikon radish), raw onion, black bean paste, and kim chee on the tables as an appetizer.
Please let me know if you know what I am talking about and if you have come across this since.
