Old school Cantonese in Queens?

  • 6

Some years ago I was told that there is still an old school Chinese restaurant in Queens, I believe on Union Turnpike near Utopia Pkwy. Can anyone refresh my memory? I'd really appreciate it. I'll be visiting from oout of town and this former Queens boy would love to revisit this food from my youth !

      Definitely King Yum, one of the last relics serving flaming pu pu platters. It must be 75 years old.

        Actually King Yum has been around since 1953. Its owner, Jimmy Eng passed away at the very end of 2007.

      2. It might be Peking House.
