decent chinese.. in astoria!?
jade chinese restaurant, in a strip mall on 21st street (33-18/20 21st street), is a clean, well lit, mostly take-out restaurant with a large open kitchen. it's brand new; they just opened a month ago or so, i think. i was hungrily driving home past there and decided to stop in for takeout. certainly american-chinese and nothing mindblowing but what i had -- singapore chow mei fun noodle -- was well cooked. hopefully they won't realize that they can get away with serving drivel for chinese in astoria and they will keep quality high.
