Flushing Dim Sum: Menus instead of carts

jjmerf | Mar 25, 2014 07:19 PM

Gonna be in Flushing this weekend and would like to have some dim sum

Here's the problem:

1) We aren't novices, but we are far from experts
2) Language is a huge barrier....we speak zero Chinese and we don't know the correct Chines name for many items

3) And the clincher: one in our group has a shellfish allergy

So, while we are somewhat adventurous, not being 100% sure what we are ordering/eating isn't an option.

In consideration of the allergy, we would feel a lot more comfortable ordering from a menu as opposed to choosing off the carts.

I know dim sum spots with menus instead of carts exist in Manhattan's about in Flushing?


(we know the "best" dim sum comes from a cart.....but as long as it is good, we are willing to pass up the "best")

Want to stay up to date with this post?
