Fresh-made rice noodles at Corner 28 (Flushing)

This morning, after my weekly stop in Flushing for breakfast, I walked past Corner 28 on my way to the LIRR. One of the windows where they usually sell the Peking duck buns now seems to have someone making fresh rice noodles to order. She has some kind of small baking oven, with several trays, and when someone orders she puts a small amount of filling on the tray, ladles some thin batter on top, and puts it in the oven. Soon after, a delicious looking rice noodle appears. The "menu" taped to the window was only in Chinese. If I wasn't so full from breakfast down the street, I would have ordered some. I'll definitely get some on my next visit, though.

      You are so right! I stopped off this morning and got one order with pork and one with shrimp, piping hot, and they were delicious. My breakfast choices in Flushing are expanding -- I just hope my stomach can keep up.

          Do they serve it without dousing it with a sickeningly sweet sauce, the way some dim sum houses do?

            They asked if I wanted sauce, and the sauce was not very sweet.

        These are, I believe, available only in the morning... as I found out when I tried to get some one evening.

        And if you're there in the evening don't forget about the incredible food upstairs at Corner 28. Just got back from there now. www.chowhound.com/topics/438540

            Yeah, I went by Monday evening and there wasn't anything like that there.

              I think the noodles are available until 11:00 a.m. and then the Peking duck buns are available after that. They have a nice selection of breakfast items (congee, dim sum) inside in the morning as well.

                also if you go in to the inside food bar in the morning they have all different noodle dishes and other snacky/breakfast items. in 4 full trays there are noodles and vegetables all different noodles (chow fun, thin noodle and some others...always sooo good and only avail in morning. they switch over around 11 but the noodles are usually gone by 10ish.
                love that place
