Visiting Montreal Mid-April - Must visits please

Hey Albatruffles, did you go to APDC, if so did the dining experience meet your expectations? We'll be in Montreal mid-May. When we were there last we could not get a reservation. Is it worth the trip?

Flushing Review: Henan Cuisine at Henan Fengwei

We loved the Big Dish Chicken. Unfortunately the restaurant ran out of the lamb noodle soup. I can't wait to go back and try the lamb dish.

I just received an email! The grand re-opening for Southern Spice is today, Sunday, October 16. I checked the website and noticed the menu has been revamped. More vegetarian dishes, additional soups and some old favorites. 1635 Hillside Avenue, New Hyde Park, NY. Website: http://www.southernspice.net

Hahm Ji Bach on Bell off Northern?

The new Hahm Ji Bach is owned by the same people as the two other restaurants on Northern and 149th Place. The menu is a little different at least from the menu of the location on 149th Place and the waitstaff seems to have changed. I haven't tried my favorite dish yet, Kim chi jigae. I hope it's the same recipe!

I agree on the red sauce. It was okay. My daughter LOVES the wings. Cavallo's will be a traditional stop.

Unfortunately the wait was too long. The restaurant looked lovely and we'll have to try again next time we're up in Clinton.

Asking for vegetarian in Flushing Chinese Food Courts/restaurants

Happy Buddha is wonderful. I am not a vegan but have found many of their dishes to be satisfying for an avid meat eater. The hot and sour soup is at least as good as any hot and sour soup in a non-vegan restaurant. Another favorite of mine is the tofu with cedar sauce. I love most of the dim sum. The steamed "char siu" buns taste much like the real thing.

We ate at Tom Cavallo's Restaurant, 40 Genesee Street, New Hartford, NY. Terrific chicken wings. Cavallo's offers 11 different sauces and they will combine sauces. The waitress suggested we have medium hot wings with BBQ sauce. We loved them! Very reasonable priced.

Hi Chowhounders!
We're bringing my daughter to Hamilton College and would love some recommendations. The college website suggested the indian Cafe on 8 College Street, Clinton, NY and The Phoenician, 623 French Road, New Harford, NY. Has anyone been to either restaurant? Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

The Hahm Ji Bach near the Murray Hill Station seems to have closed. Does anyone know if this new spot will be the only location?

Ocean City , Md this weekend?

We took our kids parasailing and our Captain recommended the Lobster Shanty. It was marvelous! The best quahog and scallop chowda I ever had the pleasure of tasting. Great consistency, not too much flour, not too much cream but couldn't find many scallops. We also had soft shell crab and crab cake sandwiches, lobster salad and clams on the half shell. Well worth the trip.

Traveling from NYC to Ocean City, MD

We're leaving tomorrow for a week in Ocean City and would greatly appreciate recommendations for hot spots on the way. We're a family of 5 with 3 teens. Can anyone recommend a take out place for fabulous crabs in Ocean City? Thanks chowhounds!

The owner is hopefully opening in New Hyde Park. We were regulars too. I look forward to the reopening.

Tandoori Bukharian Bakery in Rego Park

Delicious and reasonably priced. Try the soup, bread and salads along with the lovely kabobs. A pot of tea costs $1.50. Can't wait to return.

Chef Mani called to let us know they are planning to relocate to Long Island. Sadly, this was a local restaurant for me. I look forward to the re-opening.

Best Sam Gyup Sal in NY (Flushing) - Tong Sam Gyup Gui Restaurant (w/ pics)

Ah! We finally found the restaurant, which is located on the North side of the LIRR train stop. The little bundles of pork bbq and pickled with all the sauces make quite a tangy, tasty bite. Unfortunately, I cannot read Korean so I was happy to see Polecat's posting about the octopus. We'll have to go back and try it.

Brain is pushing it for me too. Reminds me of my grandmother trying to push me to eat that stuff.

I think we have to open a facebook group for Southern Spice. Tortilleria Nixtamal in Corona has one...it's rather amazing and useful.

Omigosh! I thought Manny put out a new dish. I didn't realize that there was another word after Lamb Sukka. This was one of the two first dishes we were served at Southern Spice. We walked in and asked Lovey and Chef Manny to select our meal for the evening.

New Tortilleria opening in Corona

We just ate at Tortilleria Nixtamal for the first time and were thrilled to have the 50 cent tour. The owners are warm, friendly and very proud of their restaurant. It was a wonderful experience. Fernando explained the soaking and grinding process as we looked at the corn soaking in the holding tank downstairs. He told us that he has corn shipped in from Illinois because that particular farm sells the variety of corn he wants. The whole place smelled terrific since they just finished a new batch of tamales. We can't wait to go back.

Oh yes, we walked over to Timmy O's Custard place in the cold night to have some delicious, creamy, 90% fat free custard ;). It was a treat to meet such happy, proud owners of some incredible eateries.

We went to Hamji Bak near the LIRR Murray Hill Station on two different nights last week and they were closed! There wasn't an out of business sign up so I'm not sure what happened. They have the best kimchi jigae IMHO.

Do they have kimchi jigae? My favorite kimchi jigae restaurant, Hamji Bak, seems to have closed! So sad.

My daughter LOVES the mint goat curry and I love the lamb sukka. Chicken 65 is always super and the Biryani is Southern Spice's specialty. I recommend the buffet lunch, you can try a small sample of several dishes and everything tastes fresh.

I think that Chef is always looking to add new items and it gets better and better. The lunch buffet offers items not included on the menu. This past weekend we had an incredible dish of cabbage flavored with onions, mustard seeds, spices and coconut which added a surprisingly complimentary mellow accent. Of course I was happy to find bindi (okra) on the buffet table. Yummy! We also had a new chili naan (I'm not sure if it's on the menu) offered up by Lovie.
