Homers Taste Chinese Restaurant in Flushing

Well if there's one restaurant that you have to try just because of its name, it has to be the recently opened Homers Taste in Flushing. Fortunately, there's also some good stuff behind the silly name. Homers Taste is a Taiwanese restaurant. Like many Taiwanese places they have a large spread of appetizers out in trays, such as pig ears, tripe and so one. I tried the vegetarian duck (really just slices of tofu product) and it was great, with a smooth, egg like texture and feel. Homers Taste is at 4108 College Point Blvd.

  1. Mmmm...tofu product....

    1. as always, thank you for bringing an intriguing place to our attention.

      and i've been meaning to ask.....have you tried Rural Restaurant on Main? i don't recall the exact address, but it's nearer the botanic garden than it is to the subway....not far from the former buddha bodai. some sichuan standards, but some offbeat dishes as well, in a setting that's one step up from carryout (plexiglass covered tables, flourescent lighting). had a couple of great vegetarian dishes, one corn based and one loofah-centric. and a really good platter of chicken feet.

      if you have, would be curious to hear your impression :)

        Have not been to Rural in awhile but I am glad to hear they are still going strong. One of the strong Manchurian places in Flushing.

          i didn't realize they were a mainstay....tend to go to my regular joints when i head out there, in part 'cause i end up making solo trips and go for what i know.

          will certainly be back, though. the food and people were terrific!

      2. Anyone been here lately? Great food, jovial's like the college point blvd version of Cheers
