My Favorite Ice Cream Shop

This is an old fashioned ice cream parlor. They make their own ice cream and hand whip the real whipped cream. My favorite sundae is the hot fudge maple walnut with whipped cream and wet walnuts. This is the place to visit for super desserts!

This place was right across the road from my hotel. The food was absolutely delicious, very reasonably priced, the Tea extremely welcome and tasty and all in all I thoroughly enjoyed it. The dumplings were so tasty and the noodles that I had to follow it were excellent. My bill came to $14.95. Fancy it is not but what is... More

I have had soup dumplings many times before, however, these were the best! If you have never had soup dumplings before, make sure to first bite a little hole through the dumpling shell, suck out all the soup and then proceed to eat the dumpling. WARNING! THEY ARE VERY HOT (temperature-wise). The line for the restaurant is usually out the... More

As a Queens native Asian American I like to think I have quite a authentic palette for Chinese food. The soup dumplings are quite delicious. I prefer theirs to anywhere else in NYC. However, there is so much more to this place than just the soup dumplings. I prefer a bowl salty soy milk with my soup dumplings. Eating a... More

Visited Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao on a Sunday afternoon. Had heard that the lines are usually out the door, although we were seated right away, probably because we were in between lunch and dinner. After the meal, I can understand why this restaurant has those long lines. The menu is fairly small for a typical Chinese restaurant, but trust... More

If you arrive and the line is out the door. Politely excuse yourself and walk to the front of the line to the cashier for a number. The line was long when we arrived but moved quickly. And boy, was it worth the wait. The restaurant is larger than it appears. Love the Xiao long bao (soup dumplings). They are... More

Enjoyed pork soup dumplings , greasy scallion pancake with beef and seafood udon noodles. Was surprised to see a "C" health code rating and quite disappointed, too.

I was prepared to be underwhelmed by the soup dumplings at Nanxiang Xiao Long Bao on Prince Street, Flushing. Luckily, I was not. We did not have to wait long for a table on a November Saturday afternoon, the service was friendly and patient, and the SLB were as good as I have had anywhere else in the USA. Soft,... More

I ate here because of the excellent TA reviews. I selected three items that other reviewers had recommended - dumplings, scallion pancakes, and udon noodles. The food was fresh but boring. The pancakes in particular was tasteless and doughy. I prefer Chinese food that is spicy and flavorful. This was neither.

We waited 20 minutes for a table. The food was just "ok", I've had better especially in NYC. If you have food allergies- make sure you ask what is in things, they had little shrimps in the Wonton soup (but it wasn't listed on the menu). The seafood noodle soup was bland, and the noodles weren't heated through- they were... More
