Saturday night in Flushing
Well, you're within short walking distance of all the great Chinese food in Flushing. I guess your closest target might be Ocean Jewels at 133-30 39th Ave., which would be at the top of many people's list for the area. But as you're from L.A., while Ocean Jewels is certainly San Gabriel Valley quality, there are certainly quite a few places equal to and also similar to Ocean Jewels in the Monterey Park/San Gabriel area, so I don't know if you want to spend your meal on something comparable to what you can get back home. If you're looking for something different, I know many 'hounds would send you into the food court at 41-28 Main St., but I'm not sure how appropriate that might be for your needs.
