OK Ryan--Another Taiwanese Import From Los Angeles Open in Flushing

Chandavkl | Jun 28, 2013 10:11 AM

Another Taiwanese restaurant has opened up on College Point Bl., just two doors down from Homers Taste. OK Ryan is the sibling to Canaan Restaurant, a single location restaurant in Cerritos CA that's a bit unlikely to open an out of state branch as compared to Liang's Kitchen which has a string of California locations. Canaan is unique among Taiwanese restaurants in Los Angeles in that they tout their food as being healthy, without MSG. The L.A. location also publicized a low fat, low salt menu, though they may have backed away from that. OK Ryan is noteworthy on a couple of other counts besides the lack of MSG. First of all is their stinky tofu, which I suspect is the best in Flushing. Also they do an unbelievable box lunch business. At 11 am, there are five gals there furiously stuffing dozens styrofoam trays with Taiwanese combination lunches. Presumably they have a lot of standing lunch orders as the boxes were bagged and delivered immediately. OK Ryan is at 41-04 College Point Blvd.
