Hungry yet again, and our Quest nowhere near complete, I had to find somewhere new to quench my thirst(?) for Chinese food. I was near the New World Mall (136-20 Roosevelt Ave, Flushing, NY 11354), so knowing I had many dining options in the basement Food Court, I headed to the epicenter of Asian cuisine. Scanning the food stalls, the one that caught my eye is the only one I know that had edamame on the menu, Stall #23, “Daimaru Ramen & Noodles”.
The menu had a few tempting options, some of which are listed below, which I scoured with great intent for a dish to accompany Edamame which my stomach decided upon hours ago. I chose the “boring” option by selecting Pan Fried Dumplings. My drink, of course, is Coca-Cola. That stuff is really addicting. But, it goes so well WITH Chinese food, just as Carvel Ice Cream goes well AFTER Chinese food.

I recently learned that Carvel Ice Cream is not available in all 50 states. That makes me wonder, what do THOSE people have after Chinese food? If you’re one of THEM, please share what you have after Chinese food in the Comments well below the article.
My food was ready in no time (much faster than at “Yozi” in Stall #20 for seemingly the same dish, which I assume required the same preparation and cooking time).
- I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the edamame had too much salt. Easier on the salt, and this edamame would rank right up there with the best edamame I ever had. And the price cannot be beaten!
- The Pan Fried Dumplings were excellent. Fried to perfection. Not overcooked, nor undercooked. Cooked just right! I didn’t have to wait too long for them to cool off down to the degree they were edible without searching my tongue. And my tongue appreciated how well they tasted. My tongue thanks you!
I really appreciate the sanitary way the chopsticks were packaged. Too many times they’re just in a paper liner, and you have to idea what they have been in contact with before they are on your tray!
When your chopsticks come sealed in plastic like this, you can feel they’re more sanitary.
Where are you going to get a meal like this, excluding Coke, for under $10.00? At the New World Mall, that’s where! Venture downstairs to the Food Court and find your next dining adventure. And if you’re looking for something more upscale, go upstairs where you will find formal dining, including “Daxi Sichuan“.
What’s your go-to Chinese restaurant or food stall inside the New World Mall?
