Asian Food Tour of Flushing Queens

I have a group of chefs that would love to tour the Asian "hot spots" in Flushing. I remember the NYTimes doing a big write up on the Flushing area. They even had a map of all the hot spots.

My question is: Is there anyone out there that leads tours like this??

  1. Here's a link to kathryn's classic guide to Flushing:

    I don't know of anyone who leads tours of the neighborhood, but this post is a very good substitute for a tourguide.

      1. How big is your group and what kind of " hot Spots " do you want to hit i.e. food stalls vs. restaurants, Korean ,Chinese, Noodle places, what ethnic type of cuisine.? I would think you have to define more exactly what kind of "hot spots " you're interested in and then consider where to go. For instance if the group is too large you'll havea tough time in a place like the Golden Shopping Mall where some of the food stalls can't accommodate a large group.

        1. Tito,
          Please do contact me at I know Flushing (from food courts to dim sum halls to beer bars and street carts) like the back of my hand. I'd be honored to take you and your chef friends on a tour. Let's discuss more over e-mail.
