ahh too bad the soup wasn't good, tong yuan is one of my all time fav desserts

i prefer the cantonese style one to the alcoholic version though, but if the tong yuan themselves are good its all good

Yopparai is fantastc!

from my experience, its nice for the neighborhood and i'd go back, but it wasn't a destination spot (not sure where you live)

ive eaten there once, its a much different menu than Yopparai, its much more down market and cheaper type menu (think like young people drinking food in Japan).

The menu had alot of fried food, i think i had the gyoza, karaage, pork tonkatsu sandwich and maybe one other thing. it was all fairly decent, but not amazing. i did like the pork tonkatsu sandwich though, that was the best (i have a soft spot for that dish)

its got an interesting alcohol menu including hoppy which is this nonalcoholic beer thing that you put sake in

the food is completely different at azasu although i agree yopparai is definitely better, i did like that they have tonkatsu sandwiches though i love those

Taking a trip to Flushing

ive had off nights at lake pavilion, but its when they are slammed (i.e. made the mistake of going on chinese new years). i think its better than asian jewels for sure which i think is very mediocre

ive wanted to try chinese house for a long time, alot of my korean friends recommend it highly

Chengdu, Xi'an in Flushing

i didn't say there is nothing good in chinatown, i'm just pointing out that congee in manhattan chinatown is actually pretty good and readily available in many place

however, there are almost no restaurants in chinatown at this point where im like ok this is a good restaurant across the board, i generally only go to restaurants for very specific dishes now

1pm is a bit late for dim sum and i also wouldn't trek to flushing for dim sum as its not great in flushing. The other options we talked about are much better in my opinion

btw i changed servers so it annoyingly changed the web addresses to the individual links to my blog, here is the correct link to the blog: http://www.lauhound.com/kang-ho-dong-...

personally i havent been super enamored with the offerings at the new world mall (anyone feel free to disagree with me bc there are alot of places there), maybe walk over to the golden mall there are more exciting offerings there (search on chowhound there is a ton written about it)
