Flushing Dim Sum -- Avoid Ocean Jewels

Abigail | Mar 22, 2009 07:46 AM

Ocean Jewels certainly seemed promising as we entered, though the promised 15-20 minute wait ended up taking 35 minutes. But the “half Peking Duck” was all skin and no meat, and seemed less than a full half. The salt and pepper fried anchovy mysteriously was all coating and no fish. Despite it’s size, the selection of items and preparation styles was quite limited, with an emphasis on bland, fried things and cold, oily things. There were a large number of carts, but not much variety. At the end of the meal, we all felt greased down and a bit queasy. When we went to pay our bill, the cashier added an extra $5, claiming the waitress had misadded—although the bill had seemed correct to begin with. We’re not going back.
