        You can't miss it. It's usually got a line 3-5 people deep on the weekends!

          I had the pleasure of sampling the Corner 28 duck bun today (well, four of them). So delicious. A couple of fatty chunks of duck and skin with hoisin sauce and cucumber on a pillowy bun. Maybe on account of the weather, there was no line at all - it took me all of 30 seconds to procure four buns of goodness. At a dollar a pop, definitely one of the best deals in town. Thanks so much for the recommendation!

      oh those fried bun things are insane, I remember the name is like, "bomb." hope they still got the duck carcasses! maybe those price went up as well? the best value in all of flushing, I'd say.

          well its in your flickr there, the one with the vendor lady at the top and the massive piles of fried crap; it's the stuff just under the you-tiao; looks like a big fissure in the middle of the fried dough and, its just some fried dough, straight up. mandarin = "zha dan". btw, that is a serious crawl. damn homie.
