EMP tasting menu is back?

We didn't choose any specific courses and left it to them to decide. They did ask if there's anything we were allergic to. Based on that, they served us the above.

Eats before or after Coldplay show at MSG

Mooncake Foods - 30th between 7th & 8th (Closer to 8th than 7th). Miso Glazed Salmon. Yum. Cheap too. Everything under $9 bucks except for daily special. Same menu as their branch in Soho.

Lucky 8 -- Sunset Park Cantonese

There are about ten 4 seat tables and three 8 seat tables upstairs. A few more tables downstairs. It's not a big place.

How was the pork maw? The last time I had it here, it was a bit tough to eat.

Ginza Hibachi Park Slope

Had dinner @ Ginza tonight on 2nd and 5th. Ordered the Filet Mignon, Tuna & Lobster hibachi. Unlike other hibachi places, they didnt overdo it with the sauces so that you are not eating teriyaki sauce. That's a good thing.

The fried rice with the hibachi was outstanding. I would go back. They dont have a liquor license yet.

Dim Sum on Linden Place, Flushing

The dim sum is okay @ Linden Place. Its more expensive than Gum Fong in Flushing. I think the pricing has to do with the fact that their renovation is over the top tacky. A lot of european themes that has no coherency.

The address is 34-20 Linden Place. The restaurant looks like a warehouse and its on a stretch of the block that has a bunch of auto repair shops.

Their website is www.linden-place.net

World Tong - Any Change?
