Dim Sum Default in Flushing
- Jophan Feb 21, 2008 12:51 PM
For a long time, Silver Pond at Main and Booth Memorial was my default first choice for dim sum in Flushing, simply because it was pretty good and I could walk to it from home in five minutes. (A dream come true for a dim sum lover who used to spend 90 minutes or more to schlep down to below Canal Street!) Now that it's closed, soon to be replaced by a Commerce Bank of all things, where would Chowhounds recommend I turn to begin a new exploration of the best dim sum Flushing has to offer?
Jade Asian has a wider variety of items than Silver Pond ever did, probably because of its size. The $2.00 weekday price for most items makes it cheaper than any other large restaurant without this promotion.Parking is across the street at the municipal lot; bring quarters(except for Sundays) and dollar coins, believe it or not for the munimeter. You'll be pleasantly surprised. If you're interested in free parking, Gala Manor has a lot on 37th Ave and another on Prince St. Overall, I prefer Jade Asian.
Thanks for the pointer to the earlier thread, which was indeed helpful. I was particularly interested to hear that Jade Asian is good. I haven't eaten at that address since Gum Fung left, and I never found Gum Fung to be as satisfying as its predecessor at that location, K. B. Garden, just more expensive, so that's good news. I think I'll also be trying Gala Manor and Guang Zhou at some point.
