After a two month hiatus, in the winter that seemingly will never ever stop in the New York City Metropolitan spot, the Mee’s strike the street yet again this night. Having specific observe of Mee Tsu Yan’s fragile intestinal fortitude, or absence thereof at this time, we purposely selected a Chinese cafe of the Cantonese variety.
As soon as once more lookup of the best Chinese cafe about we ventured forth yet again across the Nassau border in to Flushing, NY. At this stage we have to consider score Flushing restaurants on a independent scale than Long Island dining establishments as is becoming obvious that Flushing dining places are now occupying four of the top five places on our Quest to find the best Chinese restaurant on all of, umm, Lengthy Island.
Our destination was:
Foo Kee Seafood Cafe
136-fourteen 38th Avenue
Flushing, NY 11354
Our particular visitor this evening was the most honorable Mee Har Vee, a entire world renowned wine connoisseur, or sommelier, a bon vivant, and an all around nice guy. A real mensch, if at any time we satisfied a single. A character. And boy do we know characters!
Darren was our host. I swear the dude could have been in vaudeville! And what far better way to strike a chord with a Jew than currently being amusing and personable. We ended up in for a actual take care of (which positive set, the “B” rating that the Board of Wellness slapped on the cafe, our minds at relieve).
We left ALL of the buying to him… and we remaining the wine choice to Mee Har Vee… much more on that afterwards.
When Darren (we are not really confident if which Ribs Tobermory Ontario is his genuine name or a phase title) introduced out a few appetizers that provided our staple of spare ribs (so so), crispy peking duck (yum-Mee), and a crispy rooster dish, our meal received off to a fantastic start off.
It was accompanied by Mee Har Vee’s first of five wine picks, called “7 Daughters”. Now getting that we have been 6 fellas, we have been a small perplexed. What was the added daughter undertaking at our desk? Then he discussed the 7 daughters represented the seven diverse grapes that have been blended in to producing this most tasty white wine. There ended up 4 other wines served. Beats me what they were referred to as. By then I was… umm, back again to the overview.
So, right after the appetizers settled nicely in to our bellies it was time for Darren (that was his name, appropriate?) to recommend our entrees. There have been 4 or five spectacular options served with some outstanding sauces. Practically nothing spicy. But, quite succulent.
My preferred was the 5 pound lobster in garlic and ginger sauce.
There was some steak dice (kew?)… melted in your mouth. Scallops that have been like butter. Yet another rooster dish, and property unique fried rice.
Getting a correct, authentic, Chinese Restaurant, there was no fortune cookies served for desert (so sorry, you will have to select your lotto numbers from some other spot), but the sweetest juiciest oranges I have experienced in a extended extended time.
There are actually hundreds of Chinese dining establishments that you could go to in Flushing. This is 1 that you surely do not want to miss.
