Let me start out by thanking the likes of Lau, ScoopG, Kathryn and the others whose inputs I've used in putting this together!
The idea is for 3-4 of us who live in Manhattan to spend a day feasting on Flushing's best! We were thinking of just walking and eating small portions at different places. We'll eat anything so no problems there, it just has to be delicious and extra points if everything has different flavors. None of us speak any Chinese BTW (but I'm thinking about Double Dragon which is a discussion for another day ;). I also came across some restaurants during my research that I'd like to visit (probably some other time).
I'd be thankful for any advice on my choice of places and dishes, things I may have missed, etc.
It seems like a very large majority of this comprises of dumplings and noodles. Is there something that I could add to this for some variety?
1. White Bear:
- Wontons in hot oil and frozen dumplings for home
2. Flushing Mall:
- Temple Snacks: Gua Bao
- Yong He: Xian Dou Jian, Fan Tuan, Sao You Tiao, Dan Bing
- Ah Zhong: Dan Bing
- Shaved ice at the juice and shaved ice stall
3. Golden Mall:
- Lanzhou hand pulled noodles (Any dish recommendations?)
- Chengdu Heaven: Dan Dan noodels
- Xian: Been to the East Village branch loads of times so low priority
- Wang-Zheng's halal snacks
4. Nan Xiang
- Xiao Long Bao
5. Corner 28
- Roast duck buns (People seem to have a mixed response to these so relatively low priority)
6. Fu Run
- Muslim lamb chop
7. Nan Shian Dumpling House
- Soup Dumpling
- Fried dumpling
9. Soy Bean Chan (The Flower Shop)
- Tian Dou Tiag
10. Xin Jiang BBQ Master
- BBQ Kebabs
11. New World Food Mall
- Beautiful Memory desserts (Mango Pancake)
- Lao Ma Mala Tang: Mala Xiang Guo (Medium Spicy)
1. Tong Sam Gyup Sal: This looks awesome. Can't wait to try their pork belly. Also, has anyone tried their beef intestines? Is there an easy way to get to this place from Flushing?
2. M&T: I haven't looked into specific dishes yet except the 'Sea Intestines'
3. Imperial Palace: Crab rice, crisply whole chicken, Peking pork shops, braised fish, pea shoots in crab sauce
4. Canton gourmet: Garlic crab and garlic chicken
5. Main Street Imperial Taiwanese ( Bei Gang): Cong Ting Tou, one of the Putzs, three cup 'something', oyster omelet
Would it be possible for us to club maybe one restaurant with the food tour or would that be torturing our stomachs?
Thanks a lot guys!! Cheers!!
