I ate dim sum with my cousin today in Flushing at Perfect Team Corporation aka Guang Zhou Jiu Jia in chinese. It's about a block off Main on 37th next to some korean places on the 2nd floor across the street from the parking alot. It's a fairly large banquet style dining room that looks similar to the dining room at Ocean Jewel although not as big. The room was probably 70% full. Their dim sum is served on carts, but the service is pretty good since they only have maybe 5-6 carts that are pretty efficient at stopping by your table alot (i.e. its not one of those places where u have to wait forever for the cart you want to stop by). The selection of dim sum is not massive, but they have all the standards plus some extras.
On to the important part, the food, I thought this place was very solid, all of the dim sum was well made and fresh. It's on par with Ocean Jewel and Gala Manor although I think the quality of the dim sum was more consistent due to the fact that they don't have a million dim sum items...i think this is a good thing b/c they have everything you want, but its all done well and very fresh (most of it tasted like it was just made). Fyi, we were about 12:15
- Shrimp dumplings (ha gow) - great shrimp filling, shrimp tasted fresh and had been de-veined. The skin was not too thick and not too chewy either. These were very good
- Pork dumplings (siu mai / shao mai) - these were also solid, good pork filling, shrimp on top and sking was nice
- Baked pork buns (cha siu / cha shao bao) - very good, small buns, filling was excellent and not too sweet and didn't have any weird meat (i.e. stuff you can't bite through), bread was thin, but fresh and tasty...very happy with these
- Beef rice roll (niu rou cheung fan) - these were just okay, the rice dough itself was fine, but the beef should've been more finely minced, it was too chunky
- Fried daikon cake (lo bat go / luo buo gao) - these were good, the daikon was finely minced which i like, i hate when its too chunky. The flavor was good and the pieces of ham were tasty. The only thing is that I wish they would've fried it more (i like when its more crispy on the outside
- Shrimp and chive dumplings (don't know what they were called in chinese) - lady was recommending them so I tried them. It was interesting, but generally good. The filling was excellent a mixture of chives and shrimp, which was tasty. The wrapper was that clear glutinous dough except they had mixed in chives into it so it was green. I think that I generally think these glutinous wrappers just aren't my favorite, but this one wasn't bad although still not my favorite.
- Steamed custard buns (don't know what they were called in chinese) - these were steamed white buns with a thick egg custard type filling (the lady explained what the filling was, but i only understood part of it). These were very good, not too sweet and good texture.
- Pork spare ribs (pai kuat) - these were very tasty, the sauce was nice although could've been more spicy i like it better when there are green chilis in the sauce. The meat was tender although it was a bit fatty than usually
I wish I could've eaten more, but I was full. I think this place is well worth trying and that it's definitely a contender among the best dim sum places in flushing (although I haven't tried the new Jade Asian or Tung Yi Fung yet).
