Maybe I'll try to make it out to Flushing one of these days... [split from Kobryaki Bryant Park thread [Manhattan]])

I'm going to be in NYC next week, maybe I'll try and make it out to Flushing one of those days ...

        hmm well first lets just rule out cantonese and taiwanese as NY doesn't have anything to truly compete with LA on those fronts

        sichuan: Little Pepper, i like this place quite a bit although you would need a car (could just zip car it)...never been really blown away by sichuan food in LA (although been a while since I've checked the places out) and LP is quite good

        skewers: i know they have some of these places in LA now (i think i've only been to that one in ktown a long time ago), but I like Sol Hyang Lee quite a bit in particular the lamb chunk one is really good

        northern chinese: if you've read my stuff you'll know that I'm not the biggest fan of northern chinese (its fine, i just don't love it), but flushing has had a ton of northern chinese restaurants open (not that common to find). Fu Run, Golden Palace and Lao Dong Bei are probably the board darlings

        1. re: Lau

          Yes, Dongbei is probably where Flushing excels.

    1. Bring me back some marinated tofu from Homers Taste on College Point. Actually instead of going to one or two restaurants for the food, consider going to a couple of food courts for the ambience. Go to the Golden Mall in the basement at 41-28 Main St. and pretend you're Anthony Bourdain discovering the place. Or go to the New World Mall food court and try to choose from the 30 food stands there.

        i wouldnt bother with new world (feel free to correct me), but ive yet to see something that would warrant a trip from LA to get

        Golden Mall might be better choice if you were going to do that

        1. re: Lau

          I've been to both GM and NWM. Several times.

        2. re: Chandavkl

          Glad to see another Homer's fan on the board

          1. re: Chandavkl

            i dont know much about homers taste, what type of chinese cuisine do they serve? and whats the good stuff there?

            1. re: Lau

              I'm going to take a wild guess, but me thinks that the marinated tofu at Homer's is pretty good.
