NYC'S GREATEST CHINATOWN: FLUSHING, QUEENS

From dumplings to dim-sum, noodles, food halls, and underground markets, this outer-borough area is filled with authentic spots at unbelievable prices.

White Bear

Home to some of the most flavorful wontons in the city, at this tiny dumpling shop, it’s all about item #6: "wontons in hot oil".
Their light, juicy pork & vegetable wontons get dressed up in a not-so-spicy chili oil, ground up roasted chili & nubs of funky, salty preserved mustard root. They're as flavorful a plate of wontons as you could hope for.

Dumpling Galaxy

Featuring an expansive menu of over 100 dumpling varieties, this sit-down spot has everything from poultry to fish to dessert stuffed dumplings. Some of our favorites include: 

lamb + green squash,  duck + mushroom, cod + roe, dried octopus + chives, wood ear mushroom + cabbage, dill + egg, and pumpkin + black sesame (dessert) dumplings.

Fu Run

Specializing in Dongbei (Northeastern China) cuisine, their dishes are more rustic than typical southern Chinese/ Sichuan fare. Wheat noodles & potatoes in lieu of rice; stewed & fried meat instead of steamed dishes. Their “Muslim lamb chop” is a must order— it's braised, battered, deep-fried ribs encrusted with tons of spices (cumin seeds, dried chiles, mixed sesame seeds)...like the "everything bagel of Mongolia".
