Pikawicca, fourunder, Bob and I all headed to Flushing this morning Fourunder was our driver and tour guide, even down to the bottles of water he had in the car for us :)
We started at Jade Asian where we had chicken feet, bean curd wrappers stuffed with vegetables, fried taro balls, beef in rice flour rolls, spare ribs, a scallop in an open dumpling thingie that I'd not had before, a shrimp wrapped in nori and fried, and other things I'm not remembering. All quite good. We've been here a couple of times before and they don't disappoint.
Next was a stop at New World Mall where we browsed all the food vendors and three of us shared Sichuan dumplings in spicy oil. VERY good.
On we went to Golden Mall after food-window-shopping up the street. Some beautiful suckling pig at one place in particular. Downstairs in the "mall" Bob and I shared a "spicy cumin lamb burger." Quite spicy but not too much. Pika and four just watched us :)
A final stop at Nan Xiang for two orders of XLB and some hot tea (it was REALLY cold out today!). They are the large ones with six to an order. We all agreed that we prefer the smaller ones with 12 dumplings but these were nice and juicy with the wrapper being thin enough but not so thin that it tore while being picked up.
What a fun time. Chowing with CHs and Bob is even better than chowing with just Bob :) Plus we get to order more!!! Thanks again, fourunder, for your kind hospitality.
