Flushing recs for a timid colleague

Lindy74 | Dec 5, 2006 10:32 PM

In a business meeting today, a colleague said that she felt a person could not eat in Flushing if they did not speak Chinese--that the language barrier was too great and the pace intimidatingly hectic. I eat in Flushing all the time and I don't speak a word of Chinese. I am fond of dim sum at Gum Fung and I love the pork and dill dumplings from that stand in the Flushing Mall (where the lovely lady behind the counter speaks no English at all), so there was really no hope of me swaying my colleague's opinion--does anyone else have any suggestions for "starter" restaurants in Flushing?...What I mean is, places where someone feeling a little hesitant could go to get their feet wet and see that it's not that scary.
