Newly opened by the Lee and Kam Tong families, this restaurant features
a menu of unusual classic Cantonese cuisine. Let Susan, the charming hostess, describe the
dishes or speak to the knowledgeable manager, Sam Lee.
Starters (appetizers) range from Aged Tofu through 24 items including
sautéed mixed sausages and preserved vegetables priced from $1 to $6.95. Assorted congees
and noodle soups as well as assorted noodles and Lo Meins Hong Kong style are listed. The
shrimp are served Oriental style with the heads on ($6.95). Scallion Pancakes are $1.50.
Avail yourself of your favorite beverage from fresh juices to assorted
teas. Beer and wine listed on the menu will be available shortly.
Although Wonton, Egg Drop and Hot & Sour soups are listed, try
something different. Check out the Assorted Seafood with Bean Curd Soup or Yellow Chives
& Dried Scallops Soup for a culinary adventure.
The most unusual entrée listings are the Rice In Bamboo ($6.50)
delivered to the table in an interesting bamboo segment with a hinged top that opens to
reveal one of nine choices. We chose the Chicken with Black Mushrooms on a bed of rice.
Among the other exotic choices is Dried Duck with Preserved Vegetables or Frog in
The casseroles are other interesting choices. From a list of 15 we
chose Beef in Satay Sauce over Fat Rice Noodles served in a handled heavy clay casserole.
As a take out (pot included) we chose Frog with Ginger Sauce bedded on rice ($6.95). A
Duck, from Peking Style to Braised 1/2 or Whole, is always a favorite
item. Seafood is an essential part of Cantonese cuisine and here there are live fish tanks
(both fresh and sea water filled) from which you can select your meal of fish, lobsters,
crabs, eel, shrimp etc. After your selection, your meal is prepared to order by Chef Wang
From Abalones to Shark Fin, this newest addition to the Flushing scene
offers a real taste of classic Chinese cuisine. Enjoy a new taste adventure and tell
Susan, the Hostess, that the Queens Tribune sent you.
