The wife and I went for a quick walking tour in Flushing, Queens yesterday. New York City has at least 4 chinatowns and Flushing's is one of the largest and most vibrant. There are shopping malls-- actually they are cramped buildings with a number of stalls, some sell clothing or cell phones, others sell food. We hit the food courts for a quick look around yesterday and here are some pics.

The first pic is on the way into the food court at the Golden Shopping Mall (located on Main St. near Roosevelt Ave., which is the heart of chinatown in Flushing), which is almost a block in length and has travel agencies, clothing stores and pharmacies, electronics and food. In one of the stalls, an elderly asian woman making small, fresh dumplings. The filling is scallions and shrimp and "???". The scallions, shrimp and cleaver were there to make the fillings.

Picture 3 is a plate of 8 fresh steamed small dumplings. That plate was $2.50. We sat on little stools and slurped these down. On the table was a bottle of rice vinegar, a bottle of soy sauce, a watered down bottle of Sriracha, a little cup of hot chile oil and toothpicks. They gave us chopsticks.

The last two pictures are from a huge asian coffee shop/diner that we ate in before we left Flushing. On the table are Siu Mai (pork and shrimp dumplings with a more yellow or tan-ish wrapper), Har Gow ( aka 'crystal shrimp', which are shrimp dumplings in a translucent rice dough, and char siu bao (bbq pork buns), and in the squeeze jar is hoi sin (asian bbq sauce made from soybean paste, garlic, chilies, sugar and more). The har gow were my favorites, but everything seemed like is was made from pre-made frozen dumplings and buns. Not surprising from a diner.

All in all, a fantastic day of exploring. For all that food and two large cups of ice coffee, we spent a total of $25.

Matt,

You sure like green onions, don't you.

I'd hate to kiss you after going through that portion
