Asking for vegetarian in Flushing Chinese Food Courts/restaurants

realcuisine | Jun 7, 2011 01:18 PM

I'm a food writer for an independent weekly in Springfield, IL. But I'm out in NYC -- specifically Brooklyn -- frequently, visiting my daughter, son-in-law, and new grandson. Since I usually drive out, my visits are great opportunities to explore ethnic places in Queens. I'll eat anything, but my daughter and son-in-law are vegetarians (Thankfully not vegans). I particularly want to visit the food courts in Flushing's Chinese malls -- Golden Mall, Flushing Mall, etc. My kids are up for it as well, but want to make sure they don't get any meat. ? It's my understanding that many of the menus don't have English translations, and many staffers don't speak English, either. Is there a phrase in (presumably Mandarin) Chinese that they could use -- or any other strategy -- to ensure they only get non-meat dishes? We had a wonderful meal at Golden Palace last week, and I'm ready for more!
