Jian Nan Shui Xiang...Shanghainese in Flushing (??)

  1. I guess the NYT wants to keep this place a secret? Maybe it is!

    Only one mention on Yelp.

    Jiang Nan (江南 - Jiāng Nán) means the Shanghai area – which also includes parts of Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Zhejiang and Anhui province.

    1. i think this is the place a shanghainese friend of mine told me about that was good...there was some shanghainese restaurant id never heard of, maybe this is

      looks good in the video...ill go try soon, i havent any good shanghainese in a while

        I will await your verdict, and hope to get there before too long myself!

      2. Anyone ever try Da Jiang Nan Bei across from the Gold City supermarket on Kissena? Haven't been in maybe 1.5yrs, getting too lazy for hiking out there w/o a car.

        They had an excellent crab + egg yolk dish (not sure how Shanghainese it is but hey, why not), kao fu has always been decent, not too sweet, not too bland. They have a bunch of tofu knot dishes as well as meatballs in tofu skin which my mom would make all the time when I was a kid.

          Menu in English? Does staff speak any English as far as you recall? Sounds interesting.
