Poon Kee (Temporarily) Closed?

Just wanted to confirm Poon Kee is open. I stopped by yesterday and ordered the Tripe. I ordered a medium size. The price went up by 50 cents to $5.50 from $5.

Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Flushing

Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Flushing

Last week, I was walking down 37th Street between Union and Main Street and saw that Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot is opening up on 37th across the street from the municipal parking lot. The exterior looks to be completed (signs, logo). The windows are covered with paper so i couldn't see inside. I went to Little Sheep's web site and it says a New York location is coming soon. I'm looking forward to it. Hope they open soon because I love hotpot.

Best asian supermarket in JH?

No. It's in the Sky Mall, just off of College Point and Roosevelt. It's the mall with Target, Bed Bath, Old Navy. The 7 train runs right next to it.

I've been to this one several times already. The Sky Foods in Flushing is bigger than the one in Elmhurst. However, having said that, the one in Elmhurst is also big, not as big as Flushing, but on par with New York Mart and Hong Kong supermarket. Also, I've found the produce, vegetables and seafood to be very fresh. I haven't bought any meat there yet just because I haven't found a meat sale that i like yet.

Sky Foods just opened a large supermarket in the Elmhurst area, on Albion Ave. It's next to the defunct East Manor.

Has Poon Kee Closed or Just Undergoing Renovations?

Stopped by yesterday and the sign now says "Will Reopen Soon" When that will be, your guess is as good as mine. I'll probably check next month to see if it reopens but I'm beginning to lose hope.

Does anyone know where to get some good tripe in Chinatown?

Flushing Mall To Close In 2012

I read a brief paragraph in the Queens Chronicle that the developer is still raising money for the project. (Maybe that's what's slowing down the whole project)

Not Market. The location on Market manufactures noodles. I've walked by many times and they usually have the door open and you can see them working making noodles in a big industrial machine.

The restaurant, the one at 39 Monroe, is the one I'm referring to. I stopped by about three weeks ago and bought some tripe. I stopped by again this week on Tuesday and as I said in my previous post, the place is totally gutted out. I hope they're just renovating.

Has Poon Kee Closed or Just Undergoing Renovations?

I stopped by Poon Kee's yesterday to pick up some of their tripe. When I arrived, there were two men gutting out the store, everything totally ripped out. The sign on the outside, above the store, hasn't been taken down. So does anyone know if they they're just renovating the store and will reopen or have they closed down?

Similar restaurant to Benihanas

If you're looking for hibachi, there's Edo Japanese Restaurant at 9 East 17th Street. I haven't eaten there but I have gone to their other location in Pelham, NY. The food was good and I had an enjoyable time.

Mai Lai Go

Does anyone know of any bakeries in Chinatown, or Flushing, that make Mai Lai Go? I enjoyed it at dim sum in Hong Kong and San Francisco but Hong Kong was the only place I could find it in the bakeries. So far, I can only get small dim sum-sized portion at Grand restaurant at the new Flushing mall. Anyone know of any bakeries that make it?
