You've heard of Flushing and its legendary Chinatown, but for whatever reason (irrational fear of Queens, don't like being in the subway for more than 20 minutes, can't figure out why you should travel when you can just get Dragon Express to deliver...), you've never been. And, even if you have (again, you haven't), you probably got overwhelmed and just went to the first place you saw and got dumplings.
Well, we teamed up with Asian eats expert Wendy Wei (who grew up going there and speaks Chinese) and her mom (who lives there now and is opening her own restaurant there shortly) to help us put together a definitive guide and map to Flushing for next time you make the trek out there on the LIRR. Oh, right, definitive guide tip No. 1: take the LIRR and buy a "city ticket" -- it's half the price of a regular ticket and much more pleasant than the 7 train.
