Nearish to JFK

Have a four thity flight and have to drive in from Connecticut. Craving good Asian, but I'm not familiar with driving in Queens except to the airport from the highway. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  1. Since you are driving from the north, stop in Flushing (it's right off the highway) for Korean or Chinese. Decent Malaysian as well. Detour a little bit west to Elmhurst for Thai or Vietnamese.

    Kum Gang San - 13828 Northern Blvd, Flushing (general Korean)
    Myung GA Tofu - 13672 Roosevelt Ave (tofu)
    Spicy and Tasty - 39-07 Prince St (Taiwanese)
    Golden Szechuan - 13347 Roosevelt Ave (Chinese hot pot)

    let me know if you need more ideas.

      Thanks. Traffic was, well all of humanity was in its glory on the road today. But will file these for future reference, as the question often arises. We're from SF but have been in the land of the white people to the north for 4 years now. alas.

        You are welcome. Flushing is very easy to get to from the highway. Literally 2 minutes from the Van Wyck (678 - take the Whitestone Bridge). Elmhurst is a little bit trickier.

        1. re: Snoopkittykat

          it helps in Flushing that there is a huge municipal parking facility there, close to the restuarants which makes that side of things easy.

          There are also a whole string of korean restaurants on Northern Blvd, close by, if that is your interest.

      2. If you would be more comfortable time-wise being closer to the airport you could try Frenasia on Cross Bay Blvd.
