Between being on the road for months and working hard re: the whole site transition thing, I've not been to Flushing for Chinese in nearly a year. Which is an eternity in Flushing.
What I'd love is a cheat sheet...just a distilled group of suggestions re: what's killer there right now. I don't need a thorough tutorial; if I wanted the detailed view, I'd read through the 97 gajillion threads. :)
With an emphasis on the sort of places not requiring a big group (I don't have time to organize groups...I mostly eat alone or with a friend or two), can any hounds who are real "up" on Flushing bring me up to date on what's new and unmissable these days?
Is there a single standout Sichuan?
What's the dumpling situation?
What's the latest with food courts? Is the one on main just south of Roosevelt still good?
Latest exploits from my friend "King"
Current quality level at the old guard (Laif Food, Sweet and Tart, Joe's, etc)
I know all the answers to these issues from a year ago. I'm hoping for cutting-edge updates. Is anyone out there way up on it all?
