Shanghai Night Market Snacks in Flushing

Anyone eat here yet? On 40th Road just off of Main Street. Have not seen anything posted about this place - they say they have been open eight months. Now to the nomenclature.

Top two characters announce Heron Island - 鷺島 Lùdǎo.

Then we have Local Flavor Shop - 風味館 Fēngwèiguǎn.

The smaller rectangular sign as well as their paper menu reads Shanghai Night Market Snacks 夜上海小吃 Yè Shànghǎi xiǎochī.

And to complete the confusion: Yun s Restaurant!

They offer twenty Shanghai style dishes served in noodles or over rice with a few non-Shanghainese items like Tripe, Singapore Fried Rice, Lamb Soup and Fried Chicken Wings. Prices range from $4.50 to $10 tops. 48 snack items in all.

Interestingly, they are serving four red wine lee dishes (#39-42) called “wine and grain." Dishes like Pickled Pig Feet with Wine and Grain. Also: #40 Chicken Feet, #41 Green Soybean and #42 Pork Tongue. Red wine lees are not just confined to Fujian food anymore.

      I did walk in - two people there; an older man and another, maybe 20. They said they were from Shanghai.

          u know what i was thinking of the wrong restaurant, i believe it was shanghai tide until recently

          the owners of shanghai tide are / were shanghainese, they used to own yangtze river across the street, which was by far the best shanghainese in NY then they shutdown to open up shanghai tide, which was AYCE hot pot + some shanghainese dishes. If its the same owners its possible that the food might be really good

          1. re: Lau

            Shanghai Tide's address is 13520 40th Road. The restaurant formerly at 13528 40th Road had a name like Chan and Chen.

              Apparently Sago, the tea place that closed on Main St., reopened at that address for a while, but it's gone too.
